Well I can definitely say that I had multiple ideas for this project AND I still may do another one of said ideas. For now though I wanted to share one of them.
I started saving wine bottles a few months ago. Normally it would have taken a while to save up enough bottles, but with my sister visiting and a few neighborhood block parties it didn't take as long as expected.
I washed the bottles out and ran them under hot water to remove the original labels. I thought I might need goo-gone, but surprisingly the labels came off VERY easy. I turned them upside down and let them dry for quite a few days. I did not want any moisture left in them...these would be decorations and then stored, so I wanted them dry.
I gave them a couple coats of black spray paint. Note to self...the darker bottles take less paint because they are already pretty dark.
I had planned on buying the Martha Stewart beverage labels, but wondered if I could find anything from Silhouette. Of course I could!! I might have gone a little overboard and purchased EVERY Halloween label that I found. Ugh...this is the problem with having a membership...can't let any $$ go to waste.
I printed the labels on shipping label paper that I bought at Staples and cut them with my CAMEO. You could probably print on regular paper and use spray adhesive, but frankly I think that stuff is messy and I wanted them to last forever!!
What do you think?
How cute are these?
I have them up on my mantel and will reveal the entire mantel in another post. Seriously such a simple project.
