Decorative Wine Bottles

I love recycling ordinary wine bottles and transforming them into beautiful home decor.

Start by cleaning the bottles of their labels & glue. I use Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda. I put 2 cups of washing soda in a container with 8 cups of hot water. Stir until dissolved. I pour this into a cooler & fill with more hot water until it covers the labels. Close the lid and wait about an hour. The labels will peel off easily. I then use GooGone for any residual glue left behind. Wipe bottles dry after they are completely clean.
Next choose a color of spray paint and your other decorations: twine and flowers. Spray the bottle evenly. Allow paint to dry & then twine the bottle. I use contact glue because it works better than a glue gun. When twining the bottle, use one hand to hold tension on the twine & use the other to spin the bottle. Then use a hot glue gun to apply flowers any other decorations.
Sit back and enjoy your beautiful, decorative bottles.

    In one photo it seems you painted the INSIDE of the bottle because it looks so shiny. Did you?? I have tried painting the inside of bottle with no luck. Thx.
