Wine Bottle, Paint and Pennies…. What??

What can you get with some pennies, a little paint and your left over wine bottles? An AMAZING vase of coarse.

Materials Needed:

  • Empty Wine Bottle (don’t worry no judgements over here, we all have at least one empty wine bottle on hand at any moment)
  • Hot Glue
  • Paint
  • Paint Brush
  • Pennies.. How many depends on how high up you go on the wine bottle

Step one:
Drink wine 🙂 You need the bottle empty, then clean it out and get off all the labels. If they don’t come off perfectly that is ok they will be covered up later.

Step two:
Using your hot glue slowly start gluing on your pennies, starting at the bottom. It is your call as to where to start them. I started about a quarter of an inch from the bottom. You will want to glue them as close together as you can, otherwise you will either end up with an empty space or an overlap.

Step three:
Once your bottom row is on, start glueing your second row. I put my in between the pennies of the row below. But you certainly can line them up. It will give a striped look to them. (I highly recommend having some caffeine while doing this hehe)

Step four:
Repeat step three until you are all way up on the wine bottle. I choose to stop just below where the wine bottle starts to curve. The choice is completely up to you.

Last:
Paint your pennies. I choose to use black and pink. This is after the first coat. I ended up needing many coats to get it all the way covered. The pink was a fail and still the pennies are showing through. I would recommend dark colors.
