JOY Christmas Table Decoration Repurposing Wine Bottles
I've had this idea rolling around in my head for a while now. Originally, I had thought about putting black and white wedding photos in my bottles. But, then with Christmas coming, I decided to do a Christmas themed bottle display. I saved some of my clear wine bottles for this and removed the labels.
I used stencils to paint the letters on blue cardstock. Then I rolled the cardstock to fit into the bottles. I tried to use two skewers to unroll them a bit more so that you can actually see the letters. Construction paper might actually work better for this, since it wouldn't hold the shape as much once you need it to unroll in the bottle. I'll try construction paper next time! I dropped little pieces of white paper inside some of the bottles to look like snow and a couple "snowflakes". I think blue and white are my favorite Christmas colors!
What do you think? I think they turned out cute!
