Easy DIY Wine Bottle Christmas Tree Directions
• Remove the label from wine bottle. Remove leftover adhesive with goo gone. Use rubbing alcohol to remove remaining traces of adhesive and goo gone.
• Wash your wine bottle inside and out; dry completely.
• After washed, wipe down the entire exterior surface of the wine bottle with rubbing alcohol. This will remove any remaining dirt, oil, and fingerprints, etc giving the paint a better surface to adhere to. Air dry completely.
• Paint bottle with a light coat of green spray paint; allow to dry completely.
• Spray paint 2-3 more coats on the bottle until you have reached your desired coverage. Allow to dry completely in between coats.
• To create a garland design around the tree you can either lightly sketch out your pattern with a pencil or just freehand it.
• Cover over pencil design with an even generous bead of school glue.
• Working quickly, while the glue is still wet shake a heavy layer of glitter over the glue, coating completely.
• Allow to dry completely, overnight.
• Once dry gather your chosen buttons or pom poms and scatter them over the tree in a random pattern, attaching with hot glue.
• This craft uses a wooden star with a nail already through it at the craft store. However, if you cannot find one you have two options: hammer the nail through the star without cracking it (m’kay) or simply hot glue the back of the star to the wine cork (I’d go with that choice myself).
