Have no fear- we’ve found an easy and affordable way to dazzle your friends with a DIY gift that is sure to please.
DIY Bubbly Birthday Gift
Champagne is always the drink of choice when you’re down for a good old fashion celebration. By adding a little shimmer and shine to the already-sparkling mix, you’ll have the cutest present at the party. Here’s what you’ll need:
1 Unopened Champagne Bottle of Choice
1 Bottle of Glass Interior Frosting Spray
1 Bottle of Mod Podge Super Hi-Shine Clear Acrylic Sealer
1 (or 2) 2.5 Oz Containers of Extra Fine Glitter
1 Sheet Set of Letter Stickers
1 Metal Tray
1 Sheet of Wax Paper
Lay out your pan and spread your wax paper on top. The reason you’ll need this is so when the glitter falls onto the sheet, you can simply fold the paper and shift it back into its container.
Grip the neck of the bottle with one hand and spray the Glass Interior Frosting Spray around only the glass portion of the bottle. Cover the bottle completely and repeat once more. Our suggestion is to use KRYLON spray, (seen below) but any brand should work. This is used as an adhesive for the glitter.
If you’re only using one color glitter, pour the glitter directly onto the sprayed portion of the bottle. It’s okay to use a lot of glitter- it ends up falling off after it dries anyways. If you’re using 2 colored glitters, start with ONLY covering the bottom half of the sprayed portion with your color of choice. After that sets for a few minutes, pour your second colored glitter on the top half of the sprayed portion. Let this dry for at least 6 hours.
DO NOT TOUCH THE BOTTLE. By touching the bottle, it will leave finger tip indentations on the surface. Simply grip the neck of the bottle firmly once again (without touching any glitter) and spray the bottle with the Mod Podge (Mod Podge bottle can be seen in Step 2). Do this until the bottle has a somewhat thin layer over it.
Repeat step 4 to ensure that none of the glitter will shed from the bottle.
Get creative! Use lettered or decorative stickers to jazz up the bottle to make it more personal. This craft is fabulous for 21st birthdays, but can definitely be done for bachelorette parties, bridal showers, ect.!
Present it to your best girls and let the Champagne showers begin!
