Chalkboard Wine Bottles DIY

If you enjoy wine as much as I do you probably have a recycling bin full of bottles.


Perhaps you are also as indecisive as I am and have a wide variety of shapes and sizes as I do.  How will you ever know what you like if you don't try them all?   Wash and dry your bottles.  I soaked mine in a warm water bath to get the labels to come off easily.  Okay, lets be honest, the bath started out warm, but three days later when I actually got around to finishing the project it was cold, but the labels were well soaked through and came off like a dream!

Now grab a can of chalkboard spray paint and hit those babies with two light coats. 


Now draw on a fun label, or your dinner party menu..... price a table of goodies at a craft market, you'll think of something!

  5. Just washed two bottles. One will make a spectacular summertime hostess gift when we fly to Los Angeles to visit with friends over 4th of July weekend. I'll put flowers in it, one or two stems will fit. I will write "bulaklak" on the bottle, which means "flowers" in Filipino. The surname of our friends is... Flowers.

  10. I have a question. Would you put actual wine in those bottles?

  11. Tyson, if you bottle our own wine I suppose you could. Just make sure to plug the top while painting, you wouldn't want to get any paint inside. But really this project was for decoration purposes only.
