A Pretty Twinkling Wine Bottle Centerpiece

Full disclosure here, I may have collected more wine bottle empties this past year than I would otherwise like to admit. But hey, it is 2020 and a little bit more vino here and there is acceptable, right? Lucky for me, that also means I now have more supplies to craft with!

It not only feels good knowing I repurposed stuff I had at home, I love how these frosted wine bottles look on my coffee table. Adding the mini twinkle lights inside each bottle makes it feel so cozy and elegant. If you also have some empties lying around, you’ll find the steps for making your own centerpiece below.

But First…

It’s time to check out our blogging friend’s holiday crafts, everything from Christmas trees, wreaths and even more festive tablescapes like the ones made by Hearth and Vine as well as My Family Thyme! A big thank you to Leen at Sand Dollar Lane for hosting this fun blog hop! Now grab a cup of coffee and enjoy!

Materials needed to make Frosted wine bottle centerpieces including wine bottles, spray paint and painters tape.

How to Make a Frosted Wine Bottle Centerpiece:

Remove all wine bottle labeling

Place wine bottles submerged in hot water for 15 minutes. Peel away the labels and scrape the excess off if needed using a plastic scraper.

Alternatively, you can also spray the bottle with Goo Gone and rub away the glue left behind from the labels.

Getting Started

Wash the bottles in hot soapy water to remove all oils and rub them with rubbing alcohol to ensure the surface is clean and the spray will adhere.

Place painter’s tape around the bottle to make a stripe pattern. I placed one strip of painter’s tape around the lower half of one bottle, then I did two strips of tape on another bottle and I left the third bottle without any tape.

In a well ventilated area, place the bottles on a protected surface and spray with the frosted glass spray paint.

Try to apply the spray paint on to the bottle evenly from all directions. The paint when sprayed looks clear initially but turns frosted while it dries.

Hold the spray bottle upright about 10″ from the bottle and spray in a steady back and forth motion.

Leave the paint to dry for about 5 minutes and then apply another wet coat.

The frosted paint will dry fully in 10 minutes. Once dry, peel off the painter’s tape carefully.

To finish, wrap a piece of twine around the tops of the bottles, then insert a strand of twinkle lights inside each botttle. The battery won’t fit inside these bottles so it’s left hanging on the back side. And lastly, insert some fresh or faux greens and place them all together in a grouping on your table to enjoy!

I didn't know about frosted glass spray paint...what a cool craft! I love how they look with the twinkle lights. They look so pretty on your coffee table! These would be great outdoors during the summer, too. Thanks for sharing!

Hey, if 2020 isn't a reason to drink all the wine, I don't know what is! Love how you repurposed the wine bottles for Christmas. That frosted glass paint is magical with the fairy lights.
