glitter1backroundNothing says Valentines Day like bringing out the bubbly. Whether you’re celebrating with single girlfriends or you’re having a romantic dinner, dressing up your favorite Champagne or Sparkling Cider bottle will add a ton of festivity to your day. Today I’m going to show you how to cover your bottle in glitter ombre’ style! This project is super simple to do, it’s quick and the supplies (besides the Champagne) costs less that $15. Lets get started!

glittersuppliesbackroundHere’s what you’ll need:

3 types of fine glitter

Tacky Spray Adhesive

Your favorite Champagne, Rose or Sparkling Cider

Painters Tape if you want to show the brand of the Champagne, if not you can spray paint the entire bottle gold and then cover in glitter. This is a great way to disguise inexpensive Champagne. If you do have a nice bottle with a pretty label you’ll probably want to use painters tape to cover it before adding the glitter. It’s totally up to you.

I made two variations. One bottle with the pretty label showing and one with the label and the entire bottle painted in gold and covered completely in glitter.twobottlessteps

Start out by using the painters tape to cover the label. If it’s really bright you may want some more coverage before applying the glitter so go ahead and spray paint gold or whatever coordinating color you want.

Next apply a thin layer of tacky glue. For this project I used Orange/Gold Hot Pink and Light Pink glitter. When you’re going for the ombre’ look, (meaning one color gradually changing into another) you generally want to start with the darkest color at the bottom and work your way up. I started by sprinkling the Orange/Gold glitter at the base of the bottle.

Next in two bowls I combined the Orange/Gold with the Hot Pink a little at a time, mixed and continued sprinkling the mixture gradually adding more Hot Pink in. Then I sprinkled Hot Pink on it’s own in the center of the bottle. After that I mixed the Light Pink in with the Hot Pink gradually adding more Light Pink while springing it up the bottle. When I got towards the top I added Light Pink on it’s own.

It took about 30 minutes for it to dry. I removed the painters tape and wala, say hello to your drop dead gorgeous blinged out Valentines Day bottle! Super simple. it’s fun to do and it’s a total statement piece. This project is also great to do for birthdays, bridal showers, weddings, baby showers and lots and lots of holidays too.
