Hi Friends!! Ok, I promise this is my last Grinch post (well maybe, my fingers are crossed!). This is another easy Grinch decoration that would also make a fun gift. I’m showing you how to make Grinch Christmas wine bottles! Super quick and easy and you really don’t need any cutting machine if you don’t have one. I’ll give you some tips on how to do it without. I wanted to add lights to the bottle so I painted two of the exact same wine bottles with different kinds of paint to see which one I liked better. You will have to be the judge!
The bottle on the right was painted with two coats of glass enamel paint and the one on the left was painted with chalk paint. Once they were dry, I cut out the Grinch face with my Cricut on vinyl and applied it to the bottles with transfer tape. If you don’t have a cutting machine you can just draw it on with a sharpie. I ended up drawing the eyes of the darker green one with a sharpie and painting the yellow part of the eye with enamel paint so that they’d show up more with lights behind it.
I went super easy on the hat. I got a Santa hat from the Dollar Tree and cut it a little past the halfway seam.
Then fold it in half so the right sides are facing each other. Make sure the pom pom is tucked inside. Now you can go all out and sew it or you can go super easy like me and just use safety pins. I put a bunch down the length of the hat. It’s a little tricky to attach the sides up where the ball is but go as far as you can.
Then pull the pom-pom out and the rest will follow. It will now by the correct way.
So, the thing I figured out with the different paints is that you can’t see the lights through the chalk paint. So if you want yours to light up, use the enamel glass paint. The only draw back is you see the lines of your paint. If you have a paint sprayer it might work better! (I don’t have one so I don’t know for sure!!) Then stuff some fairy lights in the bottle and tuck the switch plate into the rim of the hat!
I love fairy lights! I have made so many cute projects with them! Click here to check out an easy burlap Christmas sign or click here for a DIY Christmas canvas wall art decor tutorial using fairy lights!
So which one do you like better?? Do you have a favorite? I love them both!
