Millenials are now drinking more wine than beer. And what to do with all that leftover glass? We have an easy and fun DIY craft to make a flower vase two different ways. We'll start with how to get pesky labels off wine bottles, then explore one glam vase option and one more rustic take. Cheers to this great weekend project!

Glitter-Dipped Bottle

What You'll Need

  • baking soda
  • rag
  • towel
  • empty wine bottle (any color)
  • spray paint
  • craft glue
  • glitter
  • newspaper

Instructions

Step #1: Label Remediation

Fill sink with room temperature water, high enough to cover wine label. Fill with 8 tbsp of baking soda, and let soak for thirty minutes. Using rag, wipe off softened label. Scratch any stubborn pieces with fingernail to remove.

Step #2: Squeaky Clean Bottle

With soap and water, clean naked wine bottle. Wipe dry with towel and set aside.

Step #3: Beautiful Base

We recommend completing this step out of doors or in a garage or dedicated work space. Cover floor with newspaper to protect it from paint. Spray bottle until full coated, then let dry one hour. If you want more coverage, add another coat at this time. Let dry overnight. Keep in mind, you can use any color for the base! We think a neutral option is the chicest, but add a pop of cherry red for Christmas décor, or whatever you prefer/have on hand.

Step #4: Painting Prep

Paint the area you want filled with glitter with craft glue (like Mod Podge). We love to cover the bottom fourth of the bottle for a great accent, so it looks as though it's been dipped in glitter as the name of the craft suggests.

Step #5: When I Dip You Dip We Dip

Immediately apply the loose craft glitter. To distribute evenly, shake glitter over glue. If necessary, add small amounts of more glue to cover certain spots and add more glitter. Let dry for a full day, then add some flowers for a fresh centerpiece or décor piece.

  • scissors
  • hot glue gun (and glue sticks)

Step #2: Clean Bottle

With soap and water, clean naked wine bottle. Wipe dry with towel and set aside.

Step #3: String Time

Decide how much you want covered on the bottle. It can be the entire bottle for a uniform look, or just the middle section, or even just the bottom third. Truly, be creative because anything works. Add a dollop of hot glue to the end of twine and press onto vase. Wrap around the vase, below the glue. Then, wrap around above the glue to cover your starting point. Repeat to desired effect.

Step #4: Cut Ties

Once finished, cut twine, then add one more small dollop of glue to the end to adhere to vase. Let cool for one hour. Next, gently pull loop of twine over ending spot to cover. Garnish with flowers, and you're done with this great craft!
