Wine bottles=Christmas display

The story of 3 wine bottles…..that just wanted to be pretty….
Ahhh…aren’t they pretty now…..here’s what I did….

I gathered 3 bottles…1 was a bit taller than the other 2…

Sprayed a coat of primer on them…

Let them dry and got out the Epsom salt (found in the drug section area near first aid..) what can I say…I like to think outside the box! About $2 for the box!

Spray the bottles with some craft bond spray adhesive.

Roll the tacky bottle in some Epsom salt…

kind of looks like snow?? maybe??
I placed the bottles on a silver platter that I had on hand…I also spread some extra Epsom salt around the tray. I placed a few small silver balls along with 3 votive. Inside the wine bottles I stuck in some silver pics from Michael’s. I was thinking of tall candles…that would also work too…but I liked this look a but more.
I only spent money on the Epsom salt and the silver pics…not bad really

    Love this idea! I included it on my top 10 list of handmade Christmas decor at http://www.cheapcraftymama.com. Feel free to stop by and grab a button or link to show that you have been featured!
    Thanks!

  41. I love love love this! I just made them, except I used what I had on hand. I had white spraypaint, and while they were still wet I threw a bunch of glitter on them. I'm just wondering if there's some sort of coating I can put on them so they won't chip when I package them away after Christmas. Love these!

  42. jamie @ [kreyv] says:

    These are so beautiful! I am featuring them tomorrow in my [so cheap, so easy] series. I'll be linking back to your original post. Thanks for the great idea!

  43. What a beautiful centerpiece. Thanks for posting this. Does anyone have any suggestions to what I can do to get my "snow" to stick better on the finished pieces? Is there a glaze or anything to spray on top to help it stick?

  44. Gorgeous display!

    In reponse to Jackie: I've seen other similar crafts that use Mod Podge instead of spray adhesive and some use a top coat afterward.

  45. Jennifer @ The Brilliant Crafty Type says:

    I just bought epsom salt yesterday for some Christmas crafting and I have a few more empty wine bottles since my last recycled bottle craft. I might make an epsom salt day of it! A wreath, some bottles and maybe at the end of it all a foot soak! Gotta love things with completely random uses…

  46. GunsAndBigHair says:

    Love love love! Is it ok to drink bottles of wine just so I can do this craft? Wha – Yes?! Ok!

  47. I love this!! I just linked to it over on my blog. I hope that's ok. :) Thanks for sharing!! Oh and I'm a new follower. :)

    Thanks so much for the inspiration – I just did this yesterday and it was a hit with the family. My husband said, "those wine bottles look pretty cool." I can send you a picture if you are so inclined and I will be sure to link to yours on Pinterest, when I get that far. Merry Christmas to you and yours.

  50. What a great idea! I've saved it to try.

  51. I have been trying this over and over, for wedding center pieces. They are turning out really streaky. Any one else having this trouble?
