I just love Pinterest! I have found so many interesting ideas and recipes on that site!.
I came across a pin for a holiday centerpiece that was made using wine bottles, white spray paint and Epsom Salts. I loved the idea. The bottles were very icy and wintery.
I do save wine bottles but usually only the really pretty ones. I grabbed six bottles and headed downstairs to paint them and decided I could not bare to cover up the beautiful colors! I decided to use spray adhesive and Epsom Salts so as to let the beauty of the bottle show through.
I had planned on lighting the bottles from the inside with battery operated lights--however--no battery lights fit in the bottles. I wish I had tried the lights before I sprayed them because I would have used the other trick on Pinterest to cut the bottoms off of the bottles to put the lights or flameless candles under the bottles!
I am going to redo the bottles for next year and take the bottoms off, but for this year they will stay the way they are. I have two centerpieces, both are different.
