Festive Idea: Wine Bottle Christmas Decorations
Spread the holiday cheer by transforming old wine bottles into beautiful festive works of art. It's a fun craft, and even the kids can get involved. You can also add lights if you want to use them to brighten up a particular space.
Paint the bottles in a color of your choosing and then adorn the bottles how you like; for example, you could add pine cones, or you could turn a bottle into Santa Claus using the correct trim. Feast your eyes on these awesome DIY wine bottle Christmas crafts that are sure to get you in a festive mood!
To recreate this idea, simply paint the bottles red and choose your message, which you can add with cut-out lettering. These bottles say "Noel", but you could have any other festive words such as "joy" or "holiday". Finish by adding festive trim, such as snowflakes, to the top of the bottle.
Snowman Painted Wine Bottle
A snowman is synonymous with Christmas. Begin by painting your wine bottle white, then add the face. You can use an old sock for the hat and the bottom; simply cut a length and wrap it around the bottom of the bottle. Use the rest to make a festive hat for the top.
Snowflake Decorated Bottles
Turn your bottles into vases to decorate your table. Paint the bottles all the same color, or paint them in three different colors – whatever works for your decor.
Mr & Mrs Claus
Make Mr and Mrs Claus by painting your bottles red. This is a really fun project with great results. When the paint is dry, add twine around the top and bottom of the bottle. White, glittery pipe cleaners give Mrs Claus her trim. Make a buckle for Santa by painting a black belt around the center, and add a buckle using rhinestones.
Make a fun centerpiece for your table using three wine bottles. Paint them in a color you like, and then add the letters J, O and Y to each bottle. Place them in a tray and add some more items, such as pine cones. This will really set your table decor off over the holidays.
Twine and Pine
Give bottles a new life by wrapping them in twine in the color of your choosing. You will need to use some mod podge so that the twine sticks to the bottle. Finish by adorning them with gold ribbon and pine cones for an extra festive look.
Nothing says Christmas like glitter and a poinsettia. Adorn your bottles using foam and decorate them with glitter. You can cut out petal shapes from the foam and glue them to your bottles. This would be a really cute vase for your table.
Create a rustic vibe with buffalo check. Paint the bottles white and use a stencil of a stag head and black spray paint to add that detail to the center. This would be great for farmhouse decor.
A wine bottle painted as a candy cane will look great anywhere in the house. Begin by painting the bottle white, and then add stripes of red and green in different thicknesses. You can use red and white twine to decorate the neck of the bottle.
Christmas Wine Bottle Family
Kids will love making these cute, festive characters. Purchase paint in several different colors, some googly eyes, pom poms and felt. You can make penguins, reindeer and even a tree.
Make a selection of centerpieces from your old wine bottles. For a rustic idea, wrap your bottle in twine and turn it into a deer by adding felt antlers. How about an adorable snowman? Wrap your bottle with white twine and add a little top hat, a scarf and black buttons.
Transform your old bottles into holiday lamps to decorate and brighten up corners in any room. Begin by cleaning the bottles, then add fairy lights.
Ho Ho Ho
Beer bottles can also be transformed for Christmas. Make this idea with cardboard letters and chalkboard paint. Add some cotton at the top for Santa's beard.
For fans of Dr Seuss, making a Grinch wine bottle will be a huge hit. Transform empty wine bottles into this festive green character by painting your bottle green and adding green feathers for trim. To recreate the face, you can print out a picture and try to draw that on your bottle.
