“Twine” Wrapped Wine Bottle

27 Oct

As you know I have been playing with leftover wine bottles from my sisters wedding and I decided to try a “twine” wrapped wine bottle. I’ve seen these around on pinterest, facebook, and other blogs but I’ve never really been much of a fan of them. That is, until I spotted a gorgeous natural tan colored twine that looked so elegant my jaw dropped!

This comes from from Create CousinΒ and it made me realize that I do love wrapped wine bottles! I can totally imagine this as part of a table centerpiece for thanksgiving or on a mantel of someone who loves rustic style decor. So I decided to make one myself, but of course if you know me at all – I don’t follow instructions well at all.

I grabbed a wine bottle, some macrame chord and modge podge and got to work! Be warned that this project is not easy to start and kind of messy! I started of slow and let the macrame chord dry before I kept going to ensure it to stay in place.

After that it was quick and easy! I kept wrapping and glueing and wrapping and glueing until I got to the top and realized I needed to stop and let it dry again. Patience is not the easiest thing for me when I’m doing crafts – but in most projects it’s the most important part so I while I was waiting I worked on other projects to keep me busy πŸ˜‰

Then once it was finished I added on a final bow for that last touch! This project was not only easy, but it was fun! I would recommend this project to anyone and could even been done with school aged children. For the younger kids – I would suggest starting it for them! My next attempt will be to die the macrame chord in other colors – because my Dad is crazy about dying things, so I’ll let him have a go with that πŸ˜‰

Personalized Wine Bottles

10 Oct

For those of you who follow my blog – you might remember me making personalized wine bottles for my sister for her wedding centerpieces. Now that the wedding is over and we have tons of wine bottles sitting around the house – I decided to have a little fun with it and see what else I could come up with! I have a few ideas so you’ll be seeing more posts as I finish them.

 

I took one of the wine bottles with the vinyl J on it, a box, and a can of spray paint and got to work!

I covered the wine bottle in white spray paint (and painted some grass too – oh well!) and let it dry for four hours.

Here’s an up close and personal so you can see the vinyl J better.

Once it was dry enough to touch I laid it in my lap and peeled the vinyl off. I wasn’t sure how well this would work. I was imagining the paint bleeding and the vinyl taking off chunks of paint but it came of really smooth and easy!

Then I put it up for display – of course right now the sun is beaming in and ruining the view!

I’m so happy with how easy, inexpensive, and fun this project was! I’m imagining all the different designs, styles, and colors I could do. Looks like I’ll be playing around with this project next weekend πŸ™‚

What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by!

Love Always,

J
