Wine Bottle Craft: Textured Beach Vase

Author: Amanda Formaro

Supplies

  • Americana Crystal Gloss Enamels – White
  • Americana Crystal Gloss Enamels – Green
  • Americana Crystal Gloss Enamels – Turquoise
  • Americana Crystal Gloss Enamels – Brown
  • Liquitex Gloss Heavy Gel replacement for Texture Glass which has been discontinued
  • Paintbrush
  • Toothpicks plastic spoon, steel wool or scrubber pad
  • Empty wine bottles labels removed
  • Coastal beads
  • Twine
  • Starfish
  • Hot glue gun

Instructions

  • Use a paintbrush to apply the Gloss Heavy Gel. On one bottle I used the round end of a plastic spoon to make scallops, on another toothpicks for lines, and the third I used a scrubber pad to add the texture.
  • Now you have to be patient and let it dry.
  • Crystal Gloss Enamels have really pretty colors, but I wanted mine to be a bit more muted and beachy. So I mixed my three colors with white to tone them down a bit.
  • Paint each bottle and allow them to dry.
  • String various beads onto twine and hot-glue the “bead necklaces” to the bottles then glue the starfish in place.
