Wine bottle Christmas craft

We drink a lot  a little wine around our house and with all the adorable wine bottle crafts I've been seeing on Pinterest lately, I've been dying to try some myself. Soooo, naturally I told Matt he had to get drinking and make sure to save the bottles. Once I had 6 ready, I was ready to create a festive "Ho, Ho, Ho" holiday craft!
First, I gave each bottle a base coat of paint. Simply in case some of the glitter fell off, I still wanted them to look festive. 
I let the paint dry completely. Like overnight, completely!

Next, it was time to apply the glitter. First, apply a coat of Mod Podge and then add the glitter so it sticks to the Mod Podge.
I did the Mod Podge and glitter part in sections to make life easier. 
Now, let the glitter dry on the bottles. Once the bottles are dry, finish up the tops of the bottles (it's easier this way - no finger prints!).
While the glitter dries it's time to paint the wooden letters. I wanted to spell "Ho, Ho, Ho".
I painted them red and gray to compliment the bottles. Then once the glitter was dry I used hot glue to apply the letters to the bottles. Worst. Picture. Ever.
Almost done! Now, just add some pretty flowers to each bottle. I went with these glittery silver things and red berries. 
And that's it!

  1. Those are beautiful!!! I have 7 wine bottles and a rum bottle on my mantle with lights in them, but I have others saved just waiting for inspiration. I love the idea of painting and decorating them.
