Upcycle Your Empty Wine Bottles

I spent my morning upcycling again. This time I used empty wine bottles. They are great to use for centerpieces in a DIY wedding, a decorative piece in your home, or a housewarming gift for first time home buyers.

DIY Shabby Chic Wine Bottle
Supplies you will need...
Modge Podge
Sponge or paint brush
Lace ribbon
Flowers (found in paper crafting aisle) 
Hot Glue Gun

Remove all the labels, rinse out and allow to dry overnight. 
Starting at the top of the wine bottle apply a thin coat of modge podge. Take the twine and start wrapping it tightly around the bottle, pushing each layer into the last; you want to cover all of the glass. The glue will dry fast so work quickly. Apply more modge podge if its needed. 
Once the modge podge has dried, use the glue gun to apply any embellishments you would like.

This happens often when we have associated our blogger account and Google. I'll give a link to a blog I follow that explains how to solve the problem, this is the link:

    2. Marisa, am I still showing up as a no-reply blogger? I did the tutorial you had sent me, and I'm not sure if it worked?
