I love these personalized wine bottle labels that you can buy on Pinhole Press. Great idea for a wedding, the holidays, or a gift for your girl friends. CHEERS!
This is a cute project by my friend Jessica Strobel. Here’s her post on how to do it yourself:
I love buying inexpensive things and making them into something wonderful. I’ve just recently had the desire to recreate. Being a mother of two young boys limits my time so I love projects that are easy. Here’s how to do it:
1) Collect three empty wine bottles. Spray them with a white spray primer - I didn’t bother peeling the bottles..busy mom remember :-)
2) After the bottles are dry, add spray adhesive from the neck down and roll them in Epsom salts.
3) Place the bottles on a tray. I used a silver serving tray because I like how the light reflects against it.
4) Pour a box of wicker potpourri on to the tray - I used a version that I bought at Michael’s that was painted silver.
5) Pour the remaining Epsom salts over the potpourri.
6) For the branches, I clipped some aspen tree twigs outside. You can also purchase something like this at a hobby/craft store. I then spray painted them silver.
7) After the bottles are dry, carefully squeeze the twigs into the bottles, (careful because the paint on the bottles can chip).
8) I’m a messy gal, so I had an unexpected paint drip mark on one of the bottle necks. I used the ribbon from the box of potpourri to cover it. Oh, the tricks we learn as mothers to cover up messes ;-)
9) Place a few tea lights around the tray for a warm glow. I only had them lit for the picture because my two year old likes to blow candles out and “make wishes.”
I love the finished look! I hope you all enjoy it as well. Thanks for sharing your blog, Anne.
JESSICA’S CELEBRATORY WINE: Rascal Pinot Gris, $9.99. This is a great wine, (and actually one of the bottles that I used). CHEERS FROM JESS!
Deck the halls with … wine bottles! I’m trying to look for battery-operated Christmas lights that have a small enough battery that will allow you to do this yourself. Stay tuned…
