With Halloween quickly approaching everyone is busy buying or making costumes and decorating their homes. Some are getting ready for Halloween school parades and parties. Here is a quick and easy craft using old wine bottles!
Wine bottle crafts and mason jar crafts are all the rage nowadays.
Most people find it easy and fun to do simple DIY crafts with items found around the house. We had several empty wine bottles in the recycle bin, so I hauled them out with a plan in mind!
First I removed the wine labels from the bottles. I soaked them in hot soapy water and they came right off. The small bit of residue I rubbed off with Goof Off.
Once the bottles were clean and dry, I spray painted a light coat of Rustoleum in orange gloss. (I’ve used this same can for several other projects this month including the Halloween treat jars) I sprayed several additional coats until the bottles were completely covered. Note: Make sure you cover the spray area well. Overspray can be messy.
When the bottles were completely dry, I added some stickers I found at Michael’s. The three piece set of “BOO” letters were on sale for $3.49. I love the sparkle of the faux diamonds against the glossy orange! I added a few bat stickers from Michael’s as well. Both sets of stickers were by Recollections; a Halloween collection called “bling stickers”. They also had initials and all different sorts of peel and stick designs. These could be used on pumpkins as well, which is what it showed on the label. I thought for my project these were perfect!
I topped each bottle with a tiny plastic pumpkin I bought at the dollar store.
There were 6 pumpkins in a pack for $1. I didn’t glue them on top since I wanted them to be more versatile in case I wanted to add a glow stick or candle. This wine bottle craft project was made for under $10. (not including the wine, of course!) I think these would be cute with a glow stick inside to give them a fun glow. If you are extra crafty, you could replicate the look with paint and beads, but I thought this was cute, not to mention fast!
I am having some technical difficulties with my camera so I will post before pictures later. Because it’s such a simple project, I’m sure you get the picture without them! But for now, here are the cuties lined up on my mantle, ready for Halloween’s big night!
Let me know what you think and most importantly, I hope you have a wonderful day!
