DIY Chalkboard Champagne Bottle

A super easy craft just in time for the weekend. And if you're anything like me, you have all the supplies on hand, making this project free ninety nine.

From start to finish, making a chalkboard champagne bottle maybe takes two hours. Soak the empty bottle in warm soapy water for about a half hour to loosen the labels. They should peel right off.

I'm assuming chalkboard spray paint would be even easier, but I had regular paint on hand from when we painted Narls' chalkboard wall a couple years ago. Apply a coat of paint, let dry about 30 minutes, apply another coat, then let that dry for another 30 minutes to an hour.

And voila, you're done. I stuffed a cork in the top to finish the look. Write your family's last name, a love note, a sweet word, anything; the finished project is lovely.

    It would be cute with a couple flowers in it as an alternative, too!
