DIY Chalkboard Wine Bottles…Finally!

Once upon a time, I had all these dreams and aspirations
to join in on Misha’s Pinterest Christmas
I got through a grand total of …er…ONE project.
ONE.
You can check it out here.

The problem, I still have all these ideas… and supplies.
The solution, start crafting!

I’ve had these wine bottles sitting in my kitchen for a good while now.
So long that Greg has asked twice what they are for…
like, enough time had elapsed between the first time and the second time for him to forget.

They were originally on the counter because I was going to do this project
any day now…
But then I went to JoAnn’s and they were out of chalkboard spray paint.
Darnit.
So I compromised with the hubs and moved the empty bottles to the pantry.
But of course, I forgot about them… out of sight, out of mind, right?

Anywho, while in the spray paint aisle at Walmart, for work,
I spotted my chalkboard paint and remembered I have a serious project to work on!
So, here we are!

My original idea was to write peace love and joy on the bottles (for the holidays)
so I only had three wine bottles, but then I remembered I had
this SkinnyGirl marg bottle, so I threw that in there too.

Like I said, I got the spray paint at Walmart, but I have seen it at JoAnn’s and Hobby Lobby.

You’ll see the difference between the glass bottles and the frosted bottle.
They both look cool and I like that they are different.
Don’t look too closely though, some of the paint did run down the bottle.

So instead of Christmas decor, I’ll use them for Valentine’s Day!

  1. i love this! i am actually just finishing up a very late pinterest christmas post that involves chalkboard spray paint. while i completed an enormous amount of projects for pinterest christmas this year, i have a feeling that once i am working & a mom, this amount is quickly going to fall. perhaps we should do a pinterest holiday so that we have all year to complete projects 🙂
