Colored Wine Bottles are So Easy to Make!! Find Out How!

Learn how to make colored wine bottles! Painting wine bottles is so easy and inexpensive to do.  Decorated wine bottles can be used as gifts, centerpieces, or seasonal decorations!

Have you ever wondered how to make colored wine bottles??  Well, I have a simple answer for you!  Spray Paint!!

It is super easy to spray paint wine bottles and then use them as centerpieces or home decor.  I love to decorate for our church’s Ladies Night Out and to keep the costs way down, so using colored wine bottles and a few other inexpensive DIY decor, I decorated 12 tables for next to nothing!colored wine bottle pinterest

Materials Needed for Colored Wine Bottles

    • Wine bottles – ask friends and you will get a ton.  I soak mine in hot soapy water with a little bit of tea tree oil and the labels usually side right off.  Or sometimes if they are super sticky, I have to scrape a bit.
    • Spray paint – I used Krylon ColorMaster gloss watermelon and satin sea glass from Walmart
    • Decorations – I used twine, fabric petals and charms found at a craft store

How to Spray Paint Wine Bottles

There really is not too much to these!  Once your bottles are label-free and clean, place them outside and spray them.  I used two different fun spring colors to make them colorful.

Make sure to put them on a tarp or newspaper so you don’t make a huge mess when painting the bottles.

Spray slowly up and down as you walk around the bottle.  I walk around them spraying about 3-4 times until they’re covered.

I have also used chalk paint and glass enamel paint when painting wine bottles.  I used both paints when I made some cute Christmas wine bottles with lights.

How to Decorate Wine Bottles

Once they are dry, decorate them however you like!  I wrapped twine around some of mine and added little charms and flowers with a glue stick.

I added a bible verse (a free printable I found online from The Mountain View Cottage here!) and a mason jar wrapped in burlap ribbon and filled with daffodils to each table.

The table hostesses got to take home the bottles at the end of the night so I didn’t end up with 12 colored wine bottles!

Can you use spray paint without a primer coat first? And should you use a sealer when done painting?

I have recently sprayed a few wine bottles and used tape to mask off a one inch stripe going around the bottle for interest and it looked awesome!

What kind of paint are you using? Also, make sure to be about a foot away and keep constant spray motion around the bottle. If it's too cold, that might also have an effect.
