Wino Wednesday {8.13.14) Bottle Crafts


The Crafty Wino


Well it's that time again! Join me and Aubrey from High-Heeled Love for Wino Wednesday! Once a month, the second Wednesday to be precise, we're linking up wine related posts. Vineyard recaps, craft projects, new favorites, the possibilities are endless, just like the perfect bottle of wine!

Ground Rules:

Pay a visit to the others in the link-up!

I'm several hours early to the party this month, but since I was completely AWOL last month, we'll call it even. So I've been quite the little crafter lately and earlier this week I made these beauties.


They've taken up residence on my kitchen bar and I love them! My computer ate some of my pictures, but the instructions are simple enough.

What you'll need:
Wine bottles, chalkboard paint, paintbrush, mason jars (or something that will hold your bottles upside down while the bottoms dry) hot glue, twine/rope, chalk.

I started by putting my bottles upside down in the mason jars to coat the base and let it dry. Read your can. I might not have waited quite as long as it said for the second coat, but I'm not telling.

Once the bottoms were dry enough to set them upright I finished painting them. Then I left them alone for a couple of days.

When I came back to them I used hot glue and cotton twine around the necks and tied a piece of chalk to each bottle.

These adorable little things sell at Hobby Lobby for about $8 each. I spent $10 on materials and I have enough to make tons more if I wanted. Which is good since I still have all these bottles in my craft closet.


How about you all? Any great bottle crafts?

Happy Wednesday Winos!

I love this! I want to make one of these very soon. Did the sides get messed up while in the mason jar?
I've missed your blog. A few months ago, my work laptop was very fussy with several of my favorite blogs. Even my cousins.
Now it seems to be ok so i'm hopefully back. :)
