Hello, My Life in Med School readers! I’m Kelsey and I blog over at CandidlyKelseyBlog.com!
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.
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.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
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.
