DIY wedding champagne bottles decor +50 photos
Decoration of holiday bottles is one of the beautiful traditions of the modern wedding ceremony. They can be made by the bride herself, or she can be presented to future spouses with a cute handmade gift. Exquisitely decorated champagne will wait for its time: the first bottle will pop with a cork on the anniversary of the event, the second will be drunk for the health of the first-born. The decor of wedding bottles is not only a way to please the young, but also a great hobby for needlewomen.
Types of decor for wedding bottles
An adorable holiday accessory can be made using any needlework technique. More often than other materials use satin ribbons, artificial flowers, fabric, lace and stained glass paints. According to the materials used, decor is divided into the following types:
- glass painting;
- decoration with bows, feathers, beads;
- decoration with natural flowers and leaves;
- making flowers from metal plates, polymer clay and textiles;
- performance of wedding or national costumes.
The main requirement for decor is that it must correspond to the level of solemnity, in harmony with the dishes, the design of the hall, the dresses of the newlyweds. Pompous gold engraving is inappropriate at a Provence style wedding. Intricate roses, pendants, lace will perfectly fit into a sophisticated ceremony in aristocratic decorations.
These masterpieces are obtained by using hints of a profession or a hobby, entering into marriage. A bottle, twisted with rope, miniature anchors and helms, is suitable for the groom-sailor, and the bride’s travel enthusiasm can be emphasized with tiny images of famous sights.
On the decor of a commemorative bottle, dust will surely collect over time. To combat it, use an ordinary hair dryer.
Decoration with photos of young
Photos of a couple in love give a special charm to a sparkling wedding wine. Bottles acquire individuality and become a truly memorable gift. A photograph for a similar decor is selected by a tender, romantic, proportionate bottle.
The subtle point in this technique is to stick the photo so evenly and carefully that there are no bubbles, creases, or wrinkles. To do this, the image must be done on a sufficiently thin paper. When using an inkjet printer, photo inks that do not leak when exposed to water are desirable. The ideal result is a color laser printer. In its absence, you can contact the printing house.
The photo is placed instead of the label in the lower third of the bottle. It can be framed with a heart, accompanied by an inscription-wish, made the center of a flower collage. The date of the wedding, the venue of the wedding, the names of the newlyweds, the time of the wedding will be appropriate.
Engraving is one of the most exquisite and impressive types of bottle decor. Independently, it can only be performed by an artist in the presence of the necessary equipment. Therefore, engraving is ordered in special workshops. With a time limit choose laser engraving. The desire to see a filigree ornament is provided by a more expensive and long-term manual work.
Manual work is performed using diamond or special alloys. Sometimes the drawing is applied to a thin layer of brass, which is subsequently glued to the bottle.
The engraver can order any inscription, including poetry and warm wishes. Rings, hearts, cooing pigeons, floral motifs, even portraits and favorite aphorisms of the young - there are no barriers for this technique.
Of all the types of wedding decor for bottles, engraving is the most long-lived. It will not darken with time, will not fall off, will not become dusty. An engraved bottle can be washed at any time under running water. This is a great talisman of longevity and unfading love.
You can also decorate the festive glasses of the newlyweds with engraving. With careful handling, they can take in an effervescent drink at both the chintz and the diamond wedding, each time recalling the first marriage kiss.
DIY decoration workshops
Expectant wives often decorate champagne on their own, showing guests their handicraft skills. This is an echo of those times when a girl, walking down the aisle, presented to her relatives tablecloths, towels, and shirts she embroidered. Nowadays, decorated bottles can depict anything: marital figures, candles, flower fountains.
To design a festive accessory from bottles, first of all, you need to remove the labels. To do this, they are placed in warm soapy water. After half an hour, the paper easily leaves itself. From expensive varieties, on which the glue is of higher quality, the labels are wiped with a metal dishcloth.
After that, the glass is degreased with acetone, alcohol or vodka. In any of these liquids, a cotton pad is moistened, wiped over the entire surface of the bottle and left to dry.
Next, choose the decoration technique, prepare materials, tools, create a sketch of the ornament. A test drawing is done on paper in color in order to assess its harmony and poise. Below are some simple workshops with step-by-step photos that are easy to put into practice.
Decoupage is a lifesaver for those who cannot draw. Images made in advance by the artist on plain or rice paper. They can only be cut out and pasted onto the smooth sides of the festive bottle. To work, you will need:
- thematic drawings printed on a decoupage card or table napkin;
- sharp scissors;
- acrylic primer and foam sponge for applying it;
- PVA glue (in a ratio of 1: 1 with water) or special decoupage;
- synthetic fan brush - it will not leave hairs on the finished work;
- small soft flaps;
- varnish for fixing the pattern and protecting the product from water.
For use in decoupage technique, pot-bellied bottles for champagne “House Perignon”, “Circle” or “Asti” are better than others - they have more space for placing the picture. It is simply cut out of thin paper, thick paper is first soaked in warm water and dried on a cloth.
Labeled, degreased surface is primed with acrylic paint one or two tones lighter than the main picture. After the primer dries, the selected images are applied over and generously soaked with glue. With the same brush, air bubbles are expelled from under the paper, wrinkles are smoothed out.
After the glue has completely dried, the work is protected with three layers of varnish. To achieve the effect of antiquity, craquelure varnish is used.
To keep the bottle on weight when applying or painting, use two pieces of packaging foam. In one of them, cut a recess under the neck, in the other - under the bottom.
Satin ribbons and beads
The charming decor of champagne for the wedding of a close friend is done with your own hands from satin ribbons with the addition of all kinds of little things: sequins, rhinestones, beads, half beads. The easiest way to decorate the bottle with ribbons is to braid it. This requires:
- satin or brocade ribbons 2.5 cm wide in harmonious colors;
- glue "Moment" marked "Crystal", not leaving yellow spots;
- scissors and office knife.
The tape is looped over the neck of the bottle, measure the desired length, cut. From the wrong side of the tape, several glue points are applied and glued to the bottle. Do the same with the next loop, getting a wicker relief resembling a rustic masonry.
The bottom of the bottle can be wrapped with horizontal stripes of tape. In this case, it is important that the seam is in the middle. It is processed in two ways.
- The back seam is left open, but the edges of the tape are lightly seared with a lighter to prevent the threads from frowning.
- The front seam is decorated with flowers and bows. A special chic is to use Japanese kanzashi jewelry.
A large flower on the front of the bottle can be additionally decorated with bead threads or a long narrow feather.
Costume of the bride and groom
Exquisitely look at the table bottles decorated for wedding dresses newlyweds. In this case, it is important to know in advance the style and color scheme of their clothes. Modern brides often choose not white dresses, but pink, vanilla, mint. The groom's suit is also not necessarily black.
You can make copies of young outfits from:
- slanting inlay;
- satin or silk ribbons;
- patches of expensive fabrics: brocade, velvet, taffeta.
- corrugations - a special paper for scrapbooking, which has clear folds.
The groom's bottle is braided so that the upper two or three layers of tape or paper imitate the collar of the shirt, all subsequent ones - a jacket. A bow tie is attached to the neck, button beads in the center, and a “buttonhole” rose on the left side.
Material for the bridesmaid dress is selected as carefully as possible in texture and color. A braid is made on top of the bottle, the lower third is turned into a fluffy skirt of organza, guipure, gas. If the bride and groom chose a narrow dress, the outline of the bottle is left strict. For decoration, lace, artificial flowers, small decorative accessories are used.
Polymer clay flowers
Modeling from polymer clay requires skills or at least watching a thematic video. Acquainted with the basics of work and instructions for using clay, you can perform a simple composition of flowers. To work, you will need gloves, a clerical knife and an oven in which fashioned items are baked.
Delicate colors of polymer clay are in good harmony with each other, two or three of the most suitable are chosen from them. Prepare a sketch and sculpt each petal, twigs, leaves. To do this, a piece of material is rolled out in the shape of a stick, cut into a plate with a knife and gives them the desired look with their hands.
Of the finished parts, flowers are made up, laid out on a heat-resistant basis and sent to the oven. The baking temperature (110-130 degrees) is always indicated on the clay packaging. If the temperature is not observed, the material either loses color or becomes brittle.
When heated, polymer clay changes its structure and releases toxic substances. After its presence, the oven is thoroughly washed and ventilated.
Finished fragments of the flower arrangement are attached to the bottle with superglue. They can be supplemented with beads, pearl beads, contour for stained glass.
Stylish wedding bottles are obtained if dark green glass is simply painted with stained-glass paints without adding other materials. In addition to the colors themselves, you need to prepare:
- contour for glass of gold color;
- washable marker closest to the color of the contour of the shade;
- acetone for rinsing brushes.
The initial drawing is applied to the bottle with a marker, it is possible in the form of dashed lines. On top of the marker draw a contour. After drying, traces of the marker are removed with warm water and soap, degreasing the surface along the way.
Inside closed circuits, bright bright colors are applied with a brush: green, yellow, red. It is convenient to mix them in an aluminum mold for tartlets. Twigs, stamens, creepers, small insects are drawn with a pointed match, make transitions between shades. Some fine details can be scratched with a needle over dried paint.
The wedding will rattle, the guests will scatter, the toasts will be forgotten, the solemn hall will be laid for another holiday, but two elegant bottles will remain. For a whole year they will remind the young how joyful they were to meet the dawn of their family life.
