- foam brushes
- Santa hats – I got mine from the Dollar Tree
- Cricut and vinyl or Sharpie paint markers
Painting Christmas Wine Bottles
I used two of the exact same wine bottles so you could see the difference between the paints. I used a foam brush and just painted each paint on with long strokes. I only painted up to the neck.
The painted wine bottle on the right was painted with two coats of glass enamel paint and the one on the left was painted with chalk paint.
Adding Decorations to Christmas Wine Bottles
If you don’t have a cutting machine you can just draw it on with a Sharpie. I ended up drawing the eyes of the darker green one with a sharpie and painting the yellow part of the eye with enamel paint so that they’d show up more with lights behind it.
I went super easy on the hat. I got a Santa hat from the Dollar Tree and cut it a little past the halfway seam.
Then fold it in half so the right sides are facing each other. Make sure the pom-pom is tucked inside.
Now you can go all out and sew it or you can go super easy like me and just use safety pins. I put a bunch down the length of the hat. It’s a little tricky to attach the sides up to where the ball is but go as far as you can.
Then pull the pom-pom out and the rest will follow. It will now be the correct way.
If you have a little gap up where the pom-pom is, add another safety-pin or add a few stitches to close it up.
So, the thing I figured out with the different paints is that you can’t see the lights through the chalk paint:(
So if you want painted wine bottles with lights, use the enamel glass paint. The only drawback is you see the lines of your paint.
If you have a paint sprayer it might work better! (I don’t have one so I don’t know for sure!!) Then stuff some fairy lights in the bottle and tuck the switch plate into the rim of the hat!
So which one do you like better?? Do you have a favorite? I love them both!
Want to save this for later?? You can Pin it now, if you’d like!
Thanks for stopping by!! Have a creative day!
