We’ve got an easy craft up our sleeves today on our lifestyle blog! Who doesn’t have tons of empty wine bottles laying around (guilty as charged)?! And if not, any excuse to drink a bottle or two of wine is much appreciated! With a simple removing of the label and a coat of spray paint or two, you can have some amazing centerpieces for your next dinner party! And don’t forget to add in some gorgeous Afloral silk flowers that will last the test of time!
Read on below to get the full tutorial on how to make these DIY wine bottle centerpieces!
Empty wine bottles
First you have to rid the wine bottles of labels by soaking them in water for approximately 30 minutes. This can be the most frustrating part, but with a little adhesive remover and some nails the label should come off easier. Make sure all the gooey-ness is gone from the bottle. Rinse and let dry.
Next, you get to spray paint the bottles! With your chosen spray paint, coat the bottle in three even layers of paint, or until the color is solid, letting the bottle dry for a few minutes in between each coat to avoid dripping.
Once the bottles are dry you can chalk a table number onto your chalkboard bottle (we actually ended up using a chalkboard marker instead of traditional chalk).
Then you have two options: 1. fill your bottles with flowers or 2. fill them with candles.
And that’s it! Now all of your parties will have a little something special in the middle of the tables!
