Okay, so I’ll admit it upfront. I didn’t use wine bottles. I really spruced up some mini Martinelli bottles, but you can get the same effect with wine bottles.
Here’s what I did.
First I drank 3 mini martinelli’s (over the span of a few days, of course, I’m not an apple cider-holic):
Took off the labels and the paper and glue was still a bit stuck on it:
I sanded the glue/paper off and lightly sanded the rest of each bottle as well, so the spray paint could adhere:
I then set up my spray paint zone:
Used sun yellow rustoleum:
After the first coat of spray paint:
After the second coat:
Three times the charm:
Then I put a few strips of washi tape on them:
What I learned:
Most washi tape has a semi-transparent look to it, so it looks best on white background. It still looks good on the yellow background, but the colors of the washi tape really would have popped had it been on a white background.
