DIY Glitter Wine Bottle ~ Guest Post

Hello, My Life in Med School readers! I’m Kelsey and I blog over at!

Today Jani has so graciously allowed me to take over her blog, so I thought I’d share a little DIY I tested out last week.

DIY Glitter Wine Bottle

I don’t know about you, but I’m a sucker for something hoarding things that have sentimental value to me, and am always trying to find ways to incorporate them into my décor.

A few years ago I received a bottle of wine under some special circumstances, and have kept the bottle ever since.  I finally took the plunge and decided to glitterize it, and thought I’d let you know how I did it.

Glitter Wine Bottle DIY


A clean, dry wine bottle

Super fine glitter

Mod Podge, or white school glue

A small bowl

Mix 1 part Mod Podge with part water, or 1 part white glue to 2 parts water.  Pour mixture into wine bottle, and shake to coat the inside.  Dump out excess.

Add glitter into glue-coated bottle, cover bottle opening with hand, and shake to evenly coat inside. Add more glitter if necessary.  Dump out excess.

Allow to dry and repeat once more to get a thicker coating of glitter if desired— works especially well for lighter color.  Mine shown has only been used with one coat of the gold glitter, and it worked beautifully, but I did another one and used white glitter and it needed two coats to give an opaque coloring.

Other ideas: Use a mixture of chunky glitter pieces and fine glitter to add more depth and interest.  I would suggest doing the larger glitter pieces first, then adding the finer glitter to fill in gaps afterwards.

I hope you liked this little DIY idea! If you try this, be sure to tag me on social media so I can see how it turns out.  You can find me on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and Snapchat (iamkelskels).
