Who would guess that these were brand new tiny wine bottles just a little while ago? Don’t they look cool?! The photo below shows you how they looked before the creepy makeover.
I downloaded these images from Silhouette and printed them onto vellum cardstock using my printer. Then I used my Silhouette SD to cut them out. You don’t have to have a Silhouette to do this. Just find an image you like, print it and cut it by hand. Done!
I’m pretty pleased with the way the wine bottle makeover turned out. You can do it too! Here’s what I used…
Of the things you see above, the one thing you have to have is Mod Podge.I used Tattered Angels Glimmer MistCoffee Shop to help age the cardstock vellum I used to make the labels. I wrapped the top of each bottle with twine, sprayed it with Glimmer Mist, chalked it with black and Copic markered it with gray. I used Fabri-Tac to glue the twine down. Just use things you have on hand. I’m sure you have some things already that can help you achieve an aged look. When I was little, I remember my Mom aging prints for wall decor using tea. That’s pretty cool, huh?
I put Mod Podge on the back AND front of each label. I didn’t worry about getting out all the wrinkles. I didn’t want to. I wanted the labels to look old and worn. However, it would be hard to use vellum cardstock and get all of the bubbles/wrinkles out. If you want a bump free look, I suggest using printable vinyl. ;) To give the bottle an old glass appearance, I covered it in Mod Podge too. Basically, this is a good project for you if you are a messy crafter. I was in heaven. LOL!
After the labels were stuck to the bottles and had dried a bit, I sprayed them with the Glimmer Mist. I toweled off the excess. I used that half box looking thing (above) to spray everything in. It’s a Color Catcher. Yes, I paid for a half box even though I have plenty of boxes at home. You know why? It’s super useful and I didn’t want to make my own. I recommend them. It saved both my table and my carpet. Woo hoo!
Alright friends, time for you to go get crafty!
