I am fascinated with all kinds of crafting! I love the beaded utensils & things like that, so when I ran across this article I thought I'd share! What a simple, yet striking way to spice up the ordinary! From Craftychica.com:
Don't you dare use boring blank flutes for clinking the bubbly. Put a little effort into, alrighty? It'll be worth the trouble!
4 mm Austrian flat-backed crystals (acrylic ones will work too, but they look kinda cheap)
DIREX: Wash and dry the glasses. Squeeze a glob of glue on a paper towel or foam plate. Pick up a crystal and use your other hand to dip the chopstick in the glue and dab it on the back of the crystal. Place it on the flute. Keep an eye on it so it won't slide down. It's easier to lay the flute down and complete one side at a time. Let dry and go to other side. TIP: Don't put crystals too close to the top, otherwise it will be bumpy on your lips! Hand wash.
