DIY Chalk Paint Bottle

Wine is my creative juice!

And after drinking wine there is always an empty bottle that just waits to be reuse in some or other way.

Chalk Paint a wine bottle

I made these bottles for decoration purpose, but you can refill it with anything you like for example olive oil.  It can also be a lovely gift if you paint and decorate a full bottle of wine.


Supplies that I used:

❤ Empty wine bottles
❤ White Chalk Paint
❤ Blackboard Paint
❤ Sponge and a paintbrush
❤ Masking Tape
❤ Ribbon
❤ Raffia
❤ Chalk

Remove Sticker


An easy way to remove the stickers on wine bottles is to spray the sticker with furniture polish. Leave it on for a while and then tear it of the bottle.  I then just wash with dishwashing liquid and rinse the bottles with some hot water. Now the bottles are ready for transformation.

I paint the bottles with white chalk paint. I apply the paint with a sponge, that way there isn’t any streak marks of a brush.  I do like the texture that the sponge makes on the glass.  Three coats of paint was enough to cover the bottle. Leave the paint to dry between the layers.

Use a sponge to paint

I then gave it a wax sealant for protection.

With some masking tape, I edge of a rectangle and paint it with blackboard paint. I paint two layers for a good cover.  Let it dry and remove the masking tape. If there were any bleeding of paint under the masking tape I just patch it up with a small brush.

Blackboard Paint

For decorations I used some lovely ribbons and raffia. I stick the ribbon on to the bottle with some clear glue.  The raffia was put around the top part of the bottle and attached a chalk for writing or drawing.
