Decorative Wine Bottles

It's no secret that I'm into wine.
When people ask what is your drink of choice? I'm not one that says -- Grey Goose dirty martini.
I'm boring.
I say chardonnay.
So, giving that we drink lots of wine means we have a lot of wine bottles hanging around the house.
What to do with them?
Decorate them!
(warning..sideways pictures. It's IPhone thing. Has anyone else experienced this? it bugs the crap out of me!)
All you need is a roll of masking tape.
Tear the tape into little pieces and cover the entire bottle.
 Then paint whatever color you want them to be with a sponge brush and acrylic paint!
I know, this yellow isn't for everyone but I wanted it for Mardi Gras.
 Don't think I came up with this on my own.
My Mother is pretty crafty, even though she's not into 'crafts' any more these days.
Many years ago she made this for me.
She talked a wine shop into giving her the box then she painted wine bottles to put in.
I've snatched a few of them and used around the house.
 Good way to fill space up high on an amoire.
 But, for this weekend I'm using the wine bottles as decoration for our kitchen table.
I can't wait for you guys to see all the decorations for our Super Bowl party on Sunday! 
 I'm pretty impressed with myself because I'm so not crafty.
But, again.. you'll have to wait until Monday to see.
 For now you get to see these cheesy bottles.
Don't you love the votive holders?
My MIL bought one for me last year and I picked up another one at Childress Winery last weekend.
 So, if you're bored and want something to do.
Wrap a wine bottle with tape!
 Happy Friday!
and.. Happy Mardi Gras season!

Back tomorrow with pictures from the circus!

Great idea-love it! You can use instagram or another photo editing app to change the orientation of the pic and then save it back in your photos to upload.

Girl, don't you be givin' us this "I'm not crafty bit" because I'm not buying it! I see your pictures. YOU ARE CRAFTY and guess what? I can't WAIT to see your pics on Monday! I know they will be over the top!

One of my co-workers is going to the circus too!

The wine bottles are cute!

Okay so when you transfer the iphone pic onto your computer...don't turn it. Upload it as it is (sideways) and it should turn correctly. At least mine does.

What a great idea! We always have tons of wine bottles (and even more corks) lying around!
