How to make DIY decanter labels
1 – using a short wooden dowel or a rolling pin, spread the clay between two layers of parchment paper until it is about 1/8″ thick.
2-cut out the desired letters with the cookie cutters, press them firmly enough into the clay for a clean cut, then peel off the excess clay.
3-use a toothpick to make holes for the jump rings at the top of the letters.
4-bake on a baking sheet covered with parchment at 275 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Let cool.
5 – Cut the gold chain into lengths of 5″-7″ using wire cutters, depending on the size and style of your decanter. Hook jumps rings in the sound letters, joins the chain and closes the jump rings.
Hang them like a necklace around the neck of your decanter, and that’s it! If you give them a Chance, tell how they got out!
