Last year, I made a few wine stoppers for Christmas craft fairs. I was surprised how quickly they sold and new that I definitely should make a bunch more for this year. This past weekend, I started working on a few ideas for these wine stoppers (of course while enjoying some wine in the process).
Easy DIY Etched Look Wine Bottle Stoppers
I was looking for stoppers that weren’t too personalized but could still be something that is perfect for the receiver. These bottle stoppers are so easy to make and give the appearance of being etched glass, without the headache of etching cream.
For the etched look, I use Etched Vinyl (in silver). I cut out a few shapes that are generic, yet popular and perfect for a wine bottle stopper – anchor, deer head, and some initials. Simply measure the topper and then size the decal accordingly and cut.
The etched vinyl looks just like it was actually etched into the glass; however, with the vinyl I can get a lot more intricate of designs. I couldn’t resist making myself a “D” for our own wine bottles.
Of course, craft days aren’t complete without some delicious wine to enjoy while creating (plus it serves as a great prop to hold up my completed wine bottle stoppers!
The Divining Rod 2014 Pinot Noir is absolutely delicious. The Willamette valley is just a couple hours south of where I live now and there are so much delicious wine that comes out of the region. This wine features aromas of cranberry, cherry and cinnamon – all of which add to the fresh flavor. And at under $20 a bottle, it is great for enjoying with friends or inspiring craftiness.
What shape would you like to see on a wine bottle stopper?
