I’ve had a love for marble for a long time, and when this upcyle project came about, I thought this would be the perfect place to use it!
Last summer after I painted our kitchen cabinets, I organized the drawers afterward and used contact paper for the insides for easier cleaning.
I had some leftover and decided it would be perfect for upcycling these wine bottles!
As you can see, I removed the labels and there was some glue residue left behind on the bottle.
Tip: Using nail polish remover and a cotton pad will remove it pretty easily.
Supplies Needed for Wine Bottle Upcycle
- Wine Bottle(s)
- Contact Paper
- Glue gun
- Glue sticks
Step 1. Place the contact paper around the bottle to see where to make the cut with your scissors.
Step 2: After cutting, start peeling off the first section of paper.
Step 3. Next, slowly unroll more of the paper as you stick it along the bottle.
Step 4. Ensure that you smoothen out each section to avoid creating air bubbles.
I had some trouble spots, but I used a utility knife to insert a tiny hole into the bubbles and flatten the surface again.
As you can see here, the bottle neck area was going to be tricky to smooth, so I had a plan to navigate around this: using twine!
Step 5. Stick the paper upward around the neck regardless and cover the rest with the twine.
Slowly getting there. I didn’t take pictures of me using my glue gun to glue on the twine because I’ve had it since high school and it’s full of glue residue.
My husband even asked me why it was so thick. It may be time to upgrade that tool. 😉
Step 6. Once the twine on top and bottom is glued in place, add several vertical strands of twine to the wine bottle upcycle project.
I felt like having twine at both ends was nice, but it was missing something. The vertical pieces added a little more depth and character!
There were still a few air bubbles here and there (once that paper is stuck on, there is no going back), but overall I was very pleased with how this turned out.
I always love styling the projects and pieces in my home after I’ve created something.
This mix of neutral and orange is such a pretty combination for Fall!
And that wood garland – drool worthy!
I’m very happy with how this DIY turned out!
And now it’s time to see what my talented blogger friends created for their upcycling challenge!
