I have a DIY for AWESOME all up in here…
DIY GLITTERED WINE BOTTLES, yo!
Don’t hate me because my glittered wine bottle is beautiful.
This craft was inspired right after I made my glitter-filled insulated cold cup. I LITERALLY (not figuratively literally, but literally LITERALLY) looked around my house, saw a wine bottle I had been waiting to chalkboard paint and said to my self, “Self. WHY CHALKBOARD PAINT WHEN WE CAN…. GLITTER!!!” And yes, when I talk to myself, I address us as WE.
If you PIN this, you can pin it onto your EASY board. Your RECYCLE board. Your AWESOME board. Your DO-ABLE DIY board. Your GETTIN’ HIGH ON SPRAY ADHESIVE board. And of course your SPARKLY FOOL board.
You can do this one of two ways, the EASY way:
- Mod Podge Hard Coat*
- Foam paint brush*
- This GLITTER* or this glitter that is me personal preference and offers a delicious mix of gold aaaaand silver!
- And maybe some painters tape* to help give clean lines…
Or if you want to go hard and go long:
- A glossy, acrylic sealer*
- Fine grit sand paper
- An empty wine bottle (AS THEY SHOULD BE)
- And… GLITTER*!!!
Tip: because that adhesive is quite THE STUFF, I’d do this in a well-ventilated area… like OUTSIDE.
No worries if it’s cold, this project is FAST. Do your spraying outside, pop your index finger in the bottle, and bring it in to dry when done.
Lay your bottle down and spray with adhesive. Generously sprinkle glitter. Don’t spray it all at once… do it in parts.
Once you’ve gone all the way around your bottle, look for thin spots, missed spots, or spots that make you crazy. Spray adhesive… add moaaaar glitter.
Once your bottle is adequately glittered, circle her
like a shark would a wounded seal, and give the bottle a fairly generous cover of spray adhesive.
This does not mean glitter won’t come off, but it really helps. Just don’t put the glittered bottle in your pocket, or carry it under your arm, or use it as a goal for flag football… and you should be fine.
Your very own glittered wine bottle, y’all!!!
NOW FOR THE FUN PART:
Go finish off a bottle of wine, break out the spray adhesive, break out the sand paper, and BREAK OUT THE GLITTER.
The party’s at your house tonight!
