I usually avoid glitter at all costs but these bottles are so pretty (and I usually have several empties laying around) that I may have to give this a try! Thanks!
Love this project! Before reading it I was already thinking “Cool!!! I’d love to serve wine thats in a glitter bottle!” LOL! I guess it would be advisable to do this on an empty bottle. (Unless I want glitter to be all over my chiller, wine bucket and all over everyone’s hands during a party.)Thanks for the tutorial!

This is so gorgeous! Does anyone know how much glitter you would need to cover a bottle?? I would love to do this as centerpiece but I am at a lost how much glitter would be needed! Thanks for your great idea!!
Hi Magenta!I just used a bottle of glitter I got from Walmart. It actually isn’t very much… Just when you pour it onto the bottle, be sure to keep paper under it and pour the extra back. If I had to guess an amount I would say 1/4 to 1/2 cup. Probably closer to 1/4 cup.
The custom of using a wedding band is European and has actually now spread out widely across the globe, nevertheless, in Eastern Europe and some parts of Western Europe like the Netherlands, Spain, and Germany the wedding band is worn on the right hand ring finger.
I have a tutorial for Awesome for us all today…
DIY GLITTERED WINE BOTTLES, yo!
DIY Glittered Wine Bottles, PEOPLE.
Don’t hate me because my glittered wine bottle is beautiful.
This craft was inspired right after I made my glitter-filled insulated cold cup. I LITERALLY (not figuratively literally, but literally LITERALLY) looked around my house, saw a wine bottle I had been waiting to chalkboard paint and said to my self, “Self. WHY CHALKBOARD PAINT WHEN WE CAN…. GLITTER!!!” And yes, when I talk to myself, I address us as WE.
If you PIN this, you can pin it onto your EASY board. Your RECYCLE board. Your AWESOME board. Your DO-ABLE DIY board. Your GETTIN’ HIGH ON SPRAY ADHESIVE board. And of course your SPARKLY FOOL board.
Here is what you are going to need:
A glossy, acrylic sealer.
Fine grit sand paper
An empty wine bottle (AS THEY SHOULD BE)
First… rub the bottle with sand paper. Give it a good scrub. Scratch that bad-boy up reeeeeal good. Give that adhesive somethin’ to hold on to.
Lay your sanded bottle on a covered surface.
Tip: because that adhesive is quite THE STUFF, I’d do this in a well-ventilated area… like OUTSIDE.
No worries if it’s cold, this project is FAST. Do your spraying outside, pop your index finger in the bottle, and bring it in to dry when done.
Lay your bottle down and spray with adhesive. Generously sprinkle glitter. Don’t spray it all at once… do it in parts.
Turn your bottle (gently) and repeat. Spray adhesive. Generously glitter. Spray adhesive. Generously glitter. Spray adhesive. Generously glitter. Lather. Rinse. Repeat.
Once you’ve gone all the way around your bottle, look for thin spots, missed spots, or spots that make you crazy. Spray adhesive… add moaaaar glitter.
A spritz of adhesive here… a sprinkle of glitter there…
Once your bottle is adequately glittered, circle her like a shark would a wounded seal, and give the bottle a fairly generous cover of spray adhesive.
This does not mean glitter won’t come off, but it really helps. Just don’t put the glittered bottle in your pocket, or carry it under your arm, or use it as a goal for flag football… and you should be fine.
Your very own glittered wine bottle, y’all!!!
NOW FOR THE FUN PART:
Go finish off a bottle of wine, break out the spray adhesive, break out the sand paper, and BREAK OUT THE GLITTER.
The party’s at your house tonight!
