Happy Hour Wine Charms
Keep your cocktails organized this autumn with these Happy Hour Wine Charms. Work up these insanely cute crocheted maple leaves in different colors to keep track of everyone's beverage at your next get together or dinner party. This quick and easy crochet pattern would also make a great homemade hostess gift idea. Each crocheted leaf measures approximately 2 inches across. For a more year-round wine glass accessory, use more generic nature colors instead of the festive fall colors shown here.
