I love this time of year leading up to Halloween – the weather is getting chillier, the air is getting crisp, and everything is just getting cozier! Plus, um, Halloween = candy, so there’s that.
Another reason why I love Halloween season is because Halloween crafts are so much fun! I came up with the spooky wine bottle vase craft (yeah, I said spooky…MU-AH-HA-HA-HA) after enjoying a bottle of wine with hubby and then going through my craft supplies to see what I could do with the empty bottle. In other words, this is really easy to make and if you have a craft box, you may already have all the supplies you need to make it. Extra bonus? If you don’t have an empty wine bottle, you get to make one – wink!
At any rate, the result is really pretty neat and fun, and it makes for some perfect halloween decor if you are having a get together or to put outside on halloween for trick or treaters to admire. Let’s see how to do this!
HALLOWEEN WINE BOTTLE VASE CRAFT
- Empty Wine Bottle
- black sharpie marker
- Glue gun
- Black, gray, and white acrylic paint
- paint sponge applicator and paint brush
- Fake spiders
- Fake flowers
- Plastic eyeballs
1.) The first thing you want to do is remove any labels off the wine bottle and rub the bottle down with rubbing alcohol. Let dry, then use your marker to draw a spider web on the bottle. After drawing the spider web, trace over it with the glue gun to create a textured spider web on the glass. Let the glue dry completely.
2.) Now you want to use your paint sponge applicator with black and gray paint to paint the entire bottle giving it a chalkboard like texture look. Let the paint dry, then use a paintbrush to trace over the textured spider web with white and grey paint mixed.
3.) Now you want to use your glue gun to glue the fake spiders on the web.
4.) Now comes the flowers. Use your glue gun to glue the plastic eyeballs into the center of the flowers, then place the flowers in wine glass and arrange them as you would like.
That’s it! You’re all done! You will love how this turns out – it’s super cute, easy to make and makes for a perfect party decoration!
Enjoy and Happy Halloween!
