Holiday Wine Bottle Craft for Festive Decorations

winter wine bottles decorations

As you prepare to dress your home for the holidays, get festive by creating winter wonderland themed decorations, by re-purposing your leftover wine bottles. I love these snowman & snowflake holiday decorations, they’re just creative & fun! For winter wonderland designs, I like to use the blue wine bottles for colorful contrast to create sparkly designs on top of.

Remove the Wine Bottle Label

The first step is the hardest part! If you can get through cleaning the wine bottles, removing the sticky labels and glue residue – then the rest is just fun! Some wine bottle labels can be really tricky to remove.

I start by running the bottle under warm water and scrape using a handled dish-washing brush with a scraper. If that doesn’t work, I try soaking the bottles in hot soapy water until the water turns cold. The labels should separate and lift off easily.

If not, I mix 3 parts baking soda to 1 part vegetable oil (or whatever cheap cooking oil you are willing to sacrifice from the kitchen) to create a thick paste, about the consistency of Elmer’s glue. This mixture should dissolve any stubborn glue or label. I slather this mixture onto the label or leftover glue residue and leave it over night.

Then, I return to the sink to scrub off the stickiness. A final wash with dish-washing soap is needed to remove the oil & baking soda mixture. You’ll want a clean, residue-free wine bottle before spraying, painting, or gluing anything on it.

Festive Winter Wonderland Designs

One crafty idea is to use Krylon’s Glitter Blast spray paint to create fun and colorful “snow” background on the wine bottles. You can find many colors of this glitter spray at craft stores, big box stores, home improvement stores and their corresponding online sites. I find it’s often cheapest online through Amazon, around $6 a bottle.

 I always spray outside in the lawn with cardboard down on the grass for protection. I wear a mask and safety eye glasses, as this spray is strong and comes out in a solid stream and glitter does get everywhere. This glitter spray is something to adapt to working with – but easier once you get a hang of it.

Definitely shake the can well for at least two minuets and spray from at least 3 feet away for an even consistency. If you spray too close the spray gets wet and runs.

I let this layer dry for overnight before starting on the decorative elements. Make sure to clean out the spray nozzle before the glitter dries and clogs the nozzle .

For a simple, easy to create design, you can create a fun holiday design with gemstone embellishments from the craft store. Below are links to the stickers I’ve used in the past. They already have adhesive on the back, but you can add a bit of clear glue if you’re finding they won’t stick to the bottle. Here are the snowman stickers & stems I used from Michael’s Craft Store:

Here’s another winter wonderland design idea using a 1.5L Magnum clear glass wine bottle and a sangria glass jug. Here are the snowflake stickers I used from Michael’s Craft Store & Amazon :

The festive snowman picks are similar to these stems:

Using silver spray paint is another glam option. The most important part is to have fun with your holiday creations 🙂

Materials I used for this project:

  • Krylon Glitter Blast Spray Paint

  • Snowflake & Snowman Gemstone Stickers   (Michael’s Craft Store and JO Ann’s Craft Store, Amazon linked above)

Festive Fall Home Decor

WHITE PUMPKINS SOERGELS ORCHARDS

Welcome Home Fall, Autumn Home Tour

So long, summer! Summer is always fun while it lasted, but eventually it becomes time to welcome fall. The change in weather means colorful fall leaves are outside, and inside I’m ready for candles and seasonal redecorating!

Decorating for this festive season means embracing warm color, and enhancing coziness. I love every single thing about fall, the golden hues, the crisp air, the pumpkin flavors, the warm mulled wine, the festive food – literally everything! I may go overboard when it comes to bringing in fall touches to my home, but I have no control of my enthusiasm for all things fall. For me, every surface is game for something fun. I’ve counted 28 pumpkins in my displays!

Fall a great season to decorate for because you can bring out the decorations in September and keep out your festive fall items through Thanksgiving. Check out my festive home decor ideas for inspiration on making the transition from bright summer colors to the fall’s warmer, richer hues.

 

Shelf Switch Up

I gushed about how thrilled I am to have my own hanging shelves to display my treasures on. Well this space is even more amazing because I can switch it up each season 🙂

I not only love wine, but I love upcycling the bottles and crafting decorations out of wine bottles.

Handmade Fall Decorations

Fall leaves

It’s almost that time of year! That is the time to welcome fall into your home with rustic pumpkins, leaves, gords and other seasonal items. Autumn is one of my favorite seasons. I love creating fall DIY decorations and festive displays.

I find therapeutic stress release in crafting. Tying that with my love for wine, I found the inspiration to upcycle wine bottles and other glass bottles into handmade decorations.  I realized how many bottles I was going through and throwing out. These creative painted wine bottle decorations make great vases, candle stick holders or they are great standing by themselves as decoration pieces.

For fall seasonal decor I’m using leaves and autumn colors in my DIY creations. Here’s a few DIY fall decoration ideas you can make with upcylced wine bottles and items found at the craft store.

Spring Refresh Home Decor

Spring Home Decor

Spring has sprung! Time for a home decor refresh! I gathered my favorite glass pieces and flowers from Jo-Ann Craft Store  to create my own spring blossom-inspired display.

I LOVE these new soft paper flowers from Jo-Anns. I couldn’t resist purchasing these purple lovelies. I set them in my antique teal large blue mason jar. I paired that with a few up-cycled pasta jars panted in a soft teal chalk paint. The paint I used is FolkArt® Home Decor™ Chalk Paint

This rose gold set is upcycled Four Roses Bourbon bottles. I love the shape, glass color and roses detail on these glass bottles! I decided to spray Rustoleum’s copper metallic spray paint just over the raised roses emblem.

The larger bottles are upcylced Moscato bottles with the same metallic spray paint.

I love combining different types of gold in my decor and recycling pieces throughout the season. All it takes to transition is mixing in pops of seasonal color.

I updated my silver mercury glass tub for Spring with more of the lovely paper flowers from Jo-Anns.

This charming slate board is a gift from Pampered Chef!

This piece vintage inspired piece is made from a spaghetti sauce jar. I used Rustoleum’s metallic in copper for the base and a Martha Stewart stencil and red pearl paint.

valentines day craft

This piece is a little different, my first use of chalk paint. I used a light pink FolkArt® Home Decor™ Chalk Paint on an Orangina glass bottle. It took about 5 coats to achieve a saturated finish. I used the pearl red Martha Stewart paint to freehand a large heart. I added the Be Mine detail with a Martha Stewart stencil and a Sharpie® Oil-Based Paint Marker, which I also used to freehand the arrow detail.

I found this fun heart topped mason jar at the Target Dollar Spot! I couldn’t resist it and had to have one. I choose not to paint it, but fill it with fun metallic Valentine’s themed pompoms by Recollections at Michaels.

While shopping at Michaels I of course found a few more treasures like these loose hearts and love arrow sign.

I updated my open display shelving with all these fun Valentine’s day inspired pieces.
