-Partnered Post-

Today’s DIY project is long overdue. I have glittered almost everything here on the blog, but have yet to tackle the oh-so-popular glittered wine + champagne bottles. The main reason being the glue issue as I hadn’t found a glue and sealer that would actually work like I needed it to; ie. being able to withstand the bottle being put in the fridge and the condensation that follows. But, I am excited to tell you that I have found the two golden products that make this crafting task a breeze – and I share all that goodness below. I am also super jazzed to share that I have recently been deemed a brand ambassador for one of my favorite wine labels, Bon Affair. Which is hands down, the ideal wine spritzer to drink while you are getting ready on the morning of your wedding – so I just had to glitter their sexy bottle! This post is all kinds of fab and I can’t wait for you to read on – so please do!

About Bon Affair

Bon Affair is a new wine spritzer that only has 6.5% alcohol by volume, with zero sugar, added electrolytes, grape seed extract and only 100 calories per serving. To me, this makes Bon Affair the ultimate beverage to enjoy while you are getting ready on the morning of your wedding! The buzz won’t get on top of you, no sugar eliminates the crash, and the electrolytes will help you stay hydrated. Which means you can fully celebrate in the morning and still truly enjoy the rest of your special day!

If you are thinking that it sounds familiar, you might have seen them when they made a deal with Mark Cuban on Shark Tank last year!

Glue + Sealer

I’ve tried a few different spray adhesives and sealers – and these two are the ones you want to buy for this project: Elmer’s Craft Bond, Spray Adhesive Extra Strength and Martha Stewart Crafts Sprayable Gloss Enamel Finish. The stick + finish stands up beautifully to cold + condensation when your bottles are put in the fridge! Although I did not try them chilled in a champagne bucket with ice. No glitter bottle should be put on ice – it’s just a bad combo. Keep that in mind when choosing what varietal to glitter!

I was able to make 12 bottles (6 large + 6 small) with each and I still have some adhesive/sealer left in both bottles for reference.

Tape Off Your Bottle + Prepare Workspace

Tape off areas of your bottle that you don’t want glittered. The patterning tape I’m using is low-tack which is terrific for using on top of labels of all kinds, as it peels of gently.

This is a bit of a messy project with the spray glue + glitter so cover your workspace with kraft paper or something similar.

Glue + Glitter

Working in sections, spray the adhesive onto the bottle and quickly shake on the glitter.

For the large bottle I did 3 sections; for the small bottle I only did 2. Take your time with this project. Don’t rush. Try to keep your hands out of the glue and glitter as it can be quite messy!

Remove The Tape Right Away

As soon as you are done glittering, remove the tape. Otherwise the spray adhesive will dry onto the tape and it could peel your glitter off when you go to remove it. If it’s already dried, carefully take a craft knife to the edges before you peel.

Seal Your Glitter 2x

This is the most important step. Unless you want glitter all over the place; on your hands, in your glass, and maybe even in your mouth – you need to seal the glitter coat two times! Spray to cover all glittered areas and let each coat dry for at least 10 minutes in between coats. If you feel that the glitter is still coming off – spray another coat!
