Craft-tastropy: Glitter Wine Bottles

Not all of my craft projects go…um…well. Here’s one of them.

I’ve seen so many glittered wine bottles. I received a mini bubble bottle for Christmas AND a 12-pack of glitter from my mom, so I thought it was the perfect opportunity to try one of these sparkly crafts. I purchased some decoupage glue from Martha Stewart and tested my luck….

And it was almost all wrong.

I added the clear decoupage glue to the bottle and then started to sprinkle on the glitter. I used a very fine glitter and it actually took A LOT to cover up the bottle. I tried to even out some of the glitter with a brush and it just started clumping up on me. I could have added a few more layers of glitter, but I decided to stop before there was another glitter bomb all over our apartment.


I’d probably recommend NOT doing this. Just tie a bow on the bottle. Or glue gems. Pass on this craft!
