Wine Bottle Crafts ~ Make Spring Vases ♥

Don’t you just love good wine bottle crafts? I think they are the best. First you have to start with emptying the wine bottles…that is such hard work. Then you get to have some fun crafting and at the end you have something pretty to use or look at. What’s not to love?

Today, I’ve got a tutorial for you on how to make some pretty, glittery spring vases from wine bottles. It is an easy wine bottle craft with sparkly, pretty results.

I was given the stencil and pouncer by Plaid as I offered to write this post for Amy of Mod Podge Rocks. She has a fantastic blog and got to work with Plaid crafts to create her own craft line. She asked a bunch of bloggers to help get the word out about her new line. I was more than happy to help! It is Mod Podge, glitter and stencils! Of course, even though I got a few products for free all the opinions and experiences are 100% my own.

You will want to clean the labels off your wine bottles. After you have done that, just prep them by swabbing them with some rubbing alcohol.

Place your stencil on the wine bottle in the direction you want to stencil. I did a little pre-planning and figured out that one of my wine bottles the stencil was a perfect fit three times around the bottle. The other two bottles, I had to leave some room between each in order to make it around the bottle three times.

Carefully, use your pouncer to add Mod Podge to the bottle over the stencil. Make sure you don’t accidentally get Mod Podge outside of the stencil or you will end up with glitter in those spots as well.

Remove the stencil from your wine bottle.

Sprinkle glitter over the Mod Podge’d area of your bottle. I do this over an old cookie sheet. It catches all the glitter and reduces my glittery mess. Love ♥!

Set your bottle aside to dry for 24 hours.

Wash your stencil before you go to the next bottle. Make sure to pat it dry before placing it on the next bottle.

The waiting time is the only thing that is a little bit of a pain about this craft. You have quite a bit of waiting time if you do three passes on your bottles like I did. I didn’t want to add the stencil to the bottle with all the loose glitter on it, so I waited until 24 hours later and the following step to repeat my stenciling. It ended up being a 3 day project. It was a very easy 3 day project, but still 3 days.

After 24 hours of drying, take a paint brush and gently remove the excess glitter from your bottle.

If you are repeating the stencil around your bottle, complete the first steps again at the next spot around your bottle.

All done! If you are like me, all that waiting was worth it. I think these stencils are just gorgeous. I love the extra sparkle the glitter adds.

I really loved these new stencils. They are well made and were very easy to work with and clean up. I’ve worked with A LOT of stencils in my day and I really liked these a lot and would use them again {and you will probably see this stencil again in future projects;-)}. The Mod Podge Rocks stencils are available exclusively at Michael’s stores.

I picked out three spring colors for my bottles. I think they will make the perfect addition to my spring table or maybe my spring mantel. I haven’t decided just yet.

While my bottles turned out fantastic, I did learn that if you add the Mod Podge to the stencil and then wait before adding the glitter, say if you are photographing things as you go. The Mod Podge will dry out and the glitter will have a harder time adhering. For most of you this won’t be a problem, but once you add the Mod Podge, it is not a good time to take a call from your bff and talk a while. Make sure to get the glitter on as soon as you take the stencil off, so you will get the best look from the glitter and stencil.

I decided to try them as vases and add some Lily flowers and egg decorations. Looks like I’m ready for some spring/Easter decorating!

      Thank you! I was angered to see that you have stolen another of my wine bottle crafts and are marketing that it is from your site. Please remove that pin from your pinterest board and use proper attribution to my site. Thank you.ReplyCancel
