I know you’ve seen glittered champagne bottles on Pinterest but what they don’t tell you is how messy the bottles are if you don’t seal the glitter at the end. Using an acrylic spray works best to seal the glitter, as mod podge is water soluble and may start to run/mely when wet. They are really simple and make a great gift for a bridal shower, bachelorette party, or a even 21st birthday!
- Mini champagne bottles
- Mod Podge
- Extra fine glitter
- Clear acrylic spray
- Paint brush
First, clean off the label on the champagne bottle by soaking it in cool water for a few minutes. Peel it off then rub at the glue until it comes off. Dry off and paint a layer of Mod Podge on the bottle, except for the bottom. Over a piece of paper, pour the glitter onto the bottle, covering the mod podge as best you can. Gently tap off any excess glitter and set aside to dry. Once dry, add a second layer of mod podge and glitter, tap off excess and allow to dry.
Once dry, evenly coat your the glittered bottle with clear acrylic spay in a well ventilated area (aka outside). Let the first coat dry for 10-15 minutes, then add a second coat. Allow to dry for 2 hours until handling or adding embellishments. Add a matching straw with a ribbon and you’re all set!
I made this for my cousin for her to enjoy the morning of her wedding. You could also do this in white glitter for the bride! I may do a large white glitter bottle for myself, because why not?
Have you made this before? I will try putting this in an ice bucket and let you know if the acrylic seal holds up.
