If you love eating cupcakes and drinking wine (ummm who doesn’t?) then you already have half of the supplies you need to make this Wine Bottle Easter Decor. It’s soooo easy to make that you can do it in 3 simple steps.
It’s this easy…
- Drink a bottle of wine
- Eat 5 or so cupcakes
- Make your Wine Bottle Easter Decor
Ok, not quite those steps but close…let’s try again.
Making your Wine Bottle Decor
Step 1. Drink a bottle of wine
Woo-hoo that IS a real step!
Step 2. Remove the label from bottle
While the wine bottle label comes off pretty easily after soaking in warm soapy water, often times a lot of glue is left on the bottle. To remove the glue, mix cooking oil (vegetable, caonola, etc.) with baking soda in a 50/50 mix. Apply the paste over the glue and let sit for several hours (or overnight) then scrub off.
Make sure you get all the oil off before spray painting or the paint won’t stick. Wash the bottle again with soap and water, dry and then wipe with windex.
Step 3. Spray paint the bottle
I like white paint because it really makes the colored liners pop, but choose any color that strikes your fancy. After painting, let the paint dry for the period of time listed on the can.
Step 4. Apply cupcake liners to bottle
Flatten out new cupcake liners and use Mod Podge to attach them to the bottle. Do not use liners from cupcakes you’ve eaten. While it might seem like a good idea after drinking a bottle of wine, it’s not.
When gluing the cupcake liners to the bottle, apply a THIN layer of Mod Podge to both the wine bottle and the back of the cupcake liner. When both surfaces are coated in Mod Podge, it makes it much easier to slide it where you want it and to smooth out any wrinkles in the liners. You don’t even need a paint brush for this step, but feel free to use if you like. You can simply spread the Mod Podge with your finger.
After all your cupcake liners have been applied to the wine bottle, apply a THIN coat of Mod Podge over the top of them to create a protective seal and you’re done. If you applied a bit too much Mod Podge when you attached the liners, they could become soggy and start tearing when you apply Mod Podge to the top. If this happens, just wait for the liners to dry and then apply Mod Podge to the tops.
And that’s really all it takes to make this inexpensive Easter decor piece!
