Glitter Champagne Bottle Tutorial



You know that saying, "it's about the journey not the destination"? Nah. I'm going to help you get to the desired destination without some of the unnecessary steps along the way. This glitter champagne bottle tutorial is to help you avoid the mistakes I made. So let's jump into it!

Materials: bottle of champagne, Mod Podge, sponge paint brush, glitter
Cost: About $20 for Mod Podge, adhesive spray, glitter, and sponge brush
Time: No real prep, application is about five minutes, drying is recommended for several hours


Application Method

Step 1
cover champagne bottle with the glue, stopping near the top to allow for cork removal


Step 2
pour glitter all over the bottle


Step 3
 let glue dry - Mod Podge claims only 15 minutes is needed, I recommend at least an hour


Step 4
spray bottle with adhesive glue

Step 4 is where I went wrong. After the glitter and glue are dry, you still need to seal the glitter to avoid flaking. Instead of the spray, I followed a tutorial that suggested re-applying a layer of Mod Podge. Big mistake! That actually started stripping all of the glitter off and made the process much harder than it needed to be. But lucky for you, I have the solution to missing glitter should you need to apply more - step 5.

Step 5
mix glitter and glue, apply with sponge by patting (not brushing)


The glue will look thick, but that's OK it dries clear.


Let the bottle dry overnight to be safe, and voila! Your glitter champagne bottle project is completed. Are you singing "throw some glitter make it rain" in your best Ke$ha voice? Because I am...
