If you like the original color of your wine bottle, don't worry about painting it (skip to Applying Glitter to the Wine Bottle). If you want to create glittery bottles for a particular season or holiday, such as Christmas or Halloween, paint them a specific color to represent the occasion.
Depending on what you have on hand, you can paint the wine bottle(s) with spray paint or brush on any kind of craft paint. Whichever paint method you choose, remember to protect your work area so you don't damage any furniture or other surfaces.
(I like to use a cardboard box when spray painting bottles and other small objects. It's easier to maintain the paint overspray and help prevent any dirt, dust or animal hair (if you have pets) from sticking to the wet paint. If you don't have a cardboard box, or if you're painting your bottles with a brush, simply lay your bottle(s) on some newspaper or other drop-cloth to protect your workspace.)
- Apply a thin layer of paint to the outside of the bottle. Let dry for an hour or so.
- Check the bottle. If it doesn't look like the whole bottle is covered (i.e., you can still see the original color of the glass), apply another thin coat of paint. Keep applying thin layers of paint until the bottle is completely covered.
- Let the bottle(s) dry overnight.
