Crafty Corner: Gold Glitter Champagne Bottles

78768-500

Get ready to dazzle your guests with this very simple DIY from blog.beau-coup.com!  Thank you Beau-Coup for this great tutorial!

SUPPLIES

  • Bottles: Try using mini cider bottles to create an easy to carry favor for guests
  • Decorative straws &  personalized ribbon for the final look
  • Glitter: Mix of coarse glitter and fine glitter, and different shades for an ombre effect if desired
  • Spray Glue & Scissors

 

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. APPLY GLUE

    Spray the cider bottle with the glue and let sit for 5 minutes. You can use a paintbrush to further spread it if it doesn’t spray on evenly.

    [PRO TIP] This part can get messy, so apply the glue inside of an open top box for easy clean up.

  2. ADD GLITTER

    Create a pile of the coarse glitter and roll the bottle through the glitter pile as evenly as possible.

    [PRO TIP]  Pour glitter pile on top of construction paper for easy clean up.

    Repeat this process a few times to attain as full of coverage as possible. Use your fingers to add glitter to the “naked” portions of the bottle as necessary.

    [PRO TIP] Use additional glue and glitter as required to cover any bare spots.  Use a silicone or lacquer sealer afterwards to keep the glitter in place.

  3. FINISH THE LOOK

You did it! You’ve successfully glittered your bottles for a decadently elegant look. Now finish the project by tying a decorative straw and  personalized ribbon to complete the look for a gorgeous presentation. This cute finished project is a delicious treat that guests can enjoy at the party or bring home as a unique souvenir!

[PRO TIP] For an ombre effect, add a little glue to the bottom of the completed bottle. Using a fine glitter with a different color, sprinkle along bottom of bottle.
