DIY: Wine Bottle Decoration

DIY Wine Bottle Decoration:
(I made this for a friend of mine for her wedding.)



Materials:
  • 4 Empty Glass Wine Bottles & Cork Tops (with labels removed
  • Hot Glue Gun & Hot Glue Sticks
  • Scissors
  • String 
  • Chalkboard Paint (I used this brand from Jo-Ann's)
  • Brushes
  • Newspaper
  • Assorted sized artificial flowers
  • Wooden letters (L, O, V, & E)




Directions:

1.  Find inspiration.
My friend actually came up to me and showed me a picture from Pinterest that she wanted to replicate:

The only change I would have to make would be to change the word "home" to "love".  I was so in "love" with this idea because my friend is getting married at a beautiful Wine Vineyard in California.


2.  Collect wine bottles.
One thing lovely about wine bottles is that they come in all shapes and sizes.  We started to ask around and recruit people to save their wine bottles after they have "used" them.

Luckily, a heavy blizzard hit us and we were able to collect a lot of wine bottles from family and friends!  We had to go through the different shaped bottles and pick our winning 4 bottles.


3.  Remove all wine bottle labels.
Some of the wine bottle labels peeled off so easily while others were more stubborn.  Check out my How to: Remove Sticky Labels post to learn an easy removal solution!




4. Mark the bottom of the wine bottles. 
Use a metallic sharpie to remind yourself which bottle will go to each letter.



5. Paint the bottles with chalk paint. 
I used one coat and waited until it was dry to do touch ups.  (You could always paint a second coat instead.)





6. Hot Glue the twine around the bottles. 

Tip: If you are wrapping the more curvy parts of the wine bottle, be sure to add more hot glue dots to prevent the twine from slipping out of its shape.


Tip: Alternate where you place the twine on each bottle.  See example below.



7. Arrange the letters.
Match the letters to the corresponding bottles that you have labeled on the bottom.



8. Hot Glue the letters.
Glue the letters to the sides of the wine bottles.



9. Display and admire the finished product!
Don't forget to place the corks back into the tops!

Wa-la! Now you have your very own wine bottle decor ready for display!

I love repurposing things! Please share if you have any DIY repurpose projects!

Stay crafty my friends!

  2. The glass bottles are coming in different design, shapes and color according to their point of usage some glass bottles are used to storing beverages and in some glass bottles we used to put the ketchup. Through these glass bottles we can get different advantages we can use them to store a drinking water we can use them as a decorative peace of our home or we can use it as household product.
