Any winos out there? (Slowly raises hand…) This DIY is the perfect one for you! I came across this idea in a magazine while in South Dakota and thought it was a great idea to try. You most likely have a bottle of wine around your house so drink up to make this project! Not advised to drink and then craft. 🙂 I only made one bottle but am thinking of making more with different sizes to make a cluster display.
First, you will need an empty wine bottle. Cheers! Once you have finished the bottle, you need to take the labels off. I have found the best way to do this is to fill your sink with warm water and add in 1/2 cup of baking soda. Submerge the bottle into the sink and let it soak for 15 minutes. The label will peel right off and leave no glue residue! #lifesaver. This seriously makes removing the label SO much easier then trying to scrap it off.
Gather all of your supplies:
Newspaper or something to lay down to spray the bottle
*I couldn’t fine plain epsom salt so I ended up with the scented kind. Either kind works!
Spray your bottle with primer. It doesn’t matter if the bottle has splotches or imperfections since the salt will cover it up majority of them. Once sprayed, let the bottle dry completely.
Pour epsom salt on to your newspaper or drop cloth. Spray the wine bottle with the adhesive and roll the bottle in the salt.
The finished product! I picked up the silver glitter branches at Michaels but you could really put anything in the bottle. I love the winter wonderland effect it gives!
Happy crafting and thanks for reading!
