Awesome Wine Bottle Revamp
Check out were this craft was featured!
I’'ve seen a few decorated bottles before so it was my time to give it a shot.
I have always loved the curvature of these bottles. They are made from Paul Masson, an inexpensive, but not bad, wine.
After soaking the wine bottle overnight in a tub of water the label is easy to scrape off.
Then used rubbing alcohol with a cotton ball to rub off the remaining label glue.
A bit of glue was left on so then I used one of those metal pot scrubbing things with soap and that got the bottle totally clean and clear.
So far, so good.
Then used a sponge to apply two more coats of paint.
Here I used black 3-d paint in a bottle, simply and carefully dotting around the circle. I have to admit that I do have a nice steady hand so I really enjoyed this part! But be careful not to smudge what you’ve just painted.
I also have to admit that I can be very impatient, so to speed up drying time, I placed the bottle in front of a fan.
Here is a glass container to match.
This glass bowl had been laying in one of my craft bins for a while. It was supposed to get wrapped in twine, but it wasn’t quite working out so after a few months of time out, it was time to get back in the game!
That’s one of my favorite things about crafting, if a project doesn’t work out, it’s bound to have another purpose sooner or later!
I thought it would be a perfect match with the wine bottle.
Instead of painting first, I applied the black doting first because I was only painting the outside.
After dotting the whole outer bowl and letting dry, I sponged on the white acrylic paint.
They make such a cute couple!
