Painted Wine Bottles - Wine Bottle Vases

4 Materials
15 Minutes
You won’t believe how easy it is to make these DIY painted Decorative Wine Bottles. Empty a few bottles of wine, and save the empty bottles for a fun upcyled craft. Make the perfect wine bottle vase for a simple centerpiece.
Gather your supplies. For this upcycle project, you will need: three empty wine bottles (drink up!), white spray paint, chalk paint (you can select any color of paint you like), and a paint brush.
First, clean and remove the labels form the wine bottles. Worried about pesky wine labels? Click here for the absolute easiest way to remove labels from wine bottles.
Spray paint the bottles white. Repeat several thin very layers for best results. I used 4 coats. You don’t want drips.
Then bust out the chalk paint! I just painted vertical strokes around the top and the bottom of the wine bottle.
Add a second coat for better coverage if you would like. Depending on the brand of chalk paint that you use, you may need to add a second layer. The navy paint covered with one coat, but the green took two.

Also – be careful as you paint around the bottle. I may have accidentally painted a few finger tips with chalk paint!
I think these painted wine bottles look fantastic as a stand-alone project...
...or as a vase for either fresh or faux florals.

    Is there a reason you used chalk paint instead of another kind? Alot of people use this, and I wanted to know if it makes any difference in the finish?
