Glittered Mini Champagne Bottles
Jerry and I are the luckiest couple in the world. A week before our wedding, our friends planned the funnest bachelor/bachelorette weekend away in a cabin in Truckee. We spent the whole weekend in the forest, with no stress and lots of drinks. haha.
To thank my girls for all the work they put in, I made them these little glittered champagne bottles. I've seen these all over Pinterest, but I loathed the idea of spray adhesive and loose glitter... we all know how messy that can be. Instead I sprayed them with Glitter Blast by Krylon.
This was great because they didn't...shed(?) as much and were smoother to the touch than loose glitter would have been. Plus, it was only one step, where as the alternative was like...three and screw that. Those darling pink & gold straws can be found here.
Things I learned during this process:
- If you do this outside on the patio of your upstairs apartment, you will have subtly glittery steps for approximately 100 years. It is awesome and will make you feel like Tinkerbell every morning. Decide whether this is worth losing your security deposit.
- Spray on in light coats in a sweeping motion, much like you do when spray painting just about anything else. You need to build up the coverage, or it will drip and be blotchy.
- 1 can covered 4 mini bottle PERFECTLY but you will definitely need more for anything larger. I naiively thought I'd have leftovers for another project. You won't.
- LEAVE THE DAMN THINGS ALONE to dry for at least 2 hours. You all know how impatient I can be when it comes to my crafts, and I may or amy not have left tiny bald spots on one of the bottles after attempting to check it after only 15 minutes.
Thank you, ladies so much for making it such an amazing weekend. I love you all!
