Sprucing Up Wine Bottles – Washi Tape DIY Date

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.

Go see the other washi tape projects from the DIY Date at Laid Off Mom. They’re all super cute!

  1. Oh my gosh! I love them! They’re adorable.

    Not wine (or cider) drinkers around here, but totally going to start hoarding beer bottles to do this 😉

    I can’t wait to see what other projects show up tomorrow.

      Thanks Maria, I was originally going to do a bright green, but then went with yellow (since we painted the shed door yellow) and those washi tape still worked with it 🙂 I am planning on keeping these on our patio table outside to bring some cohesiveness throughout the yard 🙂

      Thanks Katie. Yeah, the washi tape made them more fun. And I can always change the washi tape (or even spray paint the bottles a different color) if I ever want to go with a different look 🙂

    Thank you so much for sharing your DIY! I always wonder how can I rid those label glues! It never occured to me to use sandpaper. How silly of me!

    I find that soaking the bottles in water will help in softening and removing the glue from labels. This is a good compromise to the fact that you might accidentally scratch the surface of the bottles if you forgot to sandpaper it lightly.

      Hi Laura, that’s a good tip. Not too big of a problem though if you’re going to spray paint the bottles 🙂

  10. Looks great Lisha! Cool project. I like that tape.

    CUTE! I love the yellow background, even if the tape is transparent 🙂 Great job!

      Thanks Kate. I think it would have come out the way I was expecting if it wasn’t so transparent, but yeah, I still like it 🙂
