Day 4 - Christmas Wine Bottle Lights
This is a quick and fun holiday project that I like to make every year. It is very inexpensive and has a lot of visual impact. It's basically Christmas Cheer in a bottle!

    Step 1

    Create your design

    I like making Christmas trees because of the shape of the bottle, but you can create any design you wish. To make this dark green bottle, mix a gold metallic acrylic paint with copper glitter. Draw a very basic tree design on the front of the bottle with a paint brush. While the paint is still wet, sprinkle it liberally with more copper glitter until it has the effect you're looking to achieve.

    Paint your Stars

    While waiting for the tree to dry, paint 3 wooden stars (one large and 2 small) with your gold and copper glitter mixture. Set aside and let dry.

    Add your Embellishments

    After paint on bottle is dry, use E6000 to adhere your beads or other embellishments to the bottle. Place beads on tree like ornaments. Next glue your stars to neck of bottle at top of tree. Place large star on bottom, small star right above, and a small star directly on top of large star.

    With one hand on bottle to make sure it doesn't tip over, insert the string lights one light at a time with the other hand. Leave out the end of the wire with no lights just before the plug.
