Before you know it, Christmas will have come and gone and you will be invited to a New Year’s Eve party. If you don’t have a lot of free time before the big event, you can whip up this easy project to take with you. Yes, I know it’s not a new idea, but I’ve never tried it before and, as the novice crafter among the WCK team, I wanted to give it a shot and see what I could come up with.
- Unopened wine (or Champagne) bottle of your choosing
- Scissors and/or Paper Cutter
- Mod Podge (I just happened to have their Glitter version but you can use whatever you have.)
- Foam Paint Brush
- Chunky Glitter
- First, decide what parts of the bottle you’re blinging you want to still be visible. You can cover the entire bottle or:
- Use JudiKins Eclipse Tape to cover those portions of the bottle you don’t want to glitter.
- Using your paint brush, brush a thin layer of Mod Podge over the parts of the bottle you want to glitter. I chose to mask only the front label on the bottle so I would know what’s in the shiny art object.
- Place bottle over Snappy Tray
- Carefully pour glitter over Mod Podge on bottle to adhere.
- Continue applying the Mod Podge and glitter until you have covered all of the bottle you want to be “glittered.”
- Let dry 24 hours.
- Carefully peel away Eclipse tape and enjoy!
You are going to have glitter everywhere. Most of my crafty friends don’t let it bother them.
As you can probably see, part of my bottle label was torn away when I removed the Eclipse tape. With a little patience (not one of my strengths) , this can be avoided.
