Many of my family members and friends are big wine drinkers (not alcoholics, just enjoy a glass of wine, lol).  I wanted to give a set to each family however, the cheapest I found was about $3.00 and I have about 30 families going (78 and counting).   This is the idea:

 

 

Being determined to do this at a much cheaper price, I started searching ebay and found everything I needed to make 200 charms for less then $30....SOOOOO EXCITED:  Here are all the links to the items I ordered which includes the ring, beads, charms and organza bags:

 

1. The link to the Rings for the charms $5.59 for 200

http://www.ebay.ca/i...ME:L:OC:CA:3160

 

2. Organza Bags - $1.99 for 30 pouches or $4.99 for 100

http://www.ebay.com/...ME:L:OC:CA:3160

 

3. Pearl beads (I bought my colours, blue and white) $2.15 for 100

http://www.ebay.com/...69134807&_rdc=1

 

4. Dolphin charms - $3.79 for 100

http://www.ebay.com/...65035970&_rdc=1

 

5. Starfish charms - $2.99 for 30

http://www.ebay.com/...28360189&_rdc=1

 

6. Shell Charms - $3.49 for 100

http://www.ebay.com/...91352724&_rdc=1

 

7. Palm Tree Charms - $3.56 for 50

http://www.ebay.com/...35780572&_rdc=1

 

I figure that will all these, I will be able to create at least 30 sets of 4 to give to my guests and the remaining I will assemble and pass on to a friend of mine who is having a destination wedding in 2014. Can't wait to receive them and put them together.

    Thanks so much for posting the links for the different charms n stuff. Can you post a picture of how they come out. I'm really interested in doing these. Thx.

          Alright ladies...I received most of my charms and rings so I've started assembling the wine charms....alas the beads I ordered are way too big for the rings so I went digging into my 11 year old girls beads and found millions of black, white and blue (our wedding colours) and it worked...here is the final product (I'm still waiting for the Flip Flop charm and the Palm Tree tree). 

          I'll put six per bag and label...going to look like this
