ETCETERAS: White & Ecru Lace Stenciled Bottle

White & Ecru Lace Stenciled Bottle via homework (5)BSpray painting a wine bottle is such a fun and easy craft project and the results are instantly gratifying. For this project, I added some pretty lace detail and I love how it turned out.


White & Ecru Lace Stenciled Bottle via homework (6)To make this project, you’ll need an empty wine bottle. Find one, drink one or for those wine enthusiasts, grab a bottle from your stash! Wash out your bottle and remove any labels and sticky residue.

To create the lace pattern, I used a Martha Stewart Adhesive Silkscreen. Apply the silkscreen directly to the bottle making sure it is tightly adhered with no wrinkles. To apply the paint you can use a foam pouncer or the squeegee method. I prefer the squeegee method. These are special little rubber craft squeegees that pull the paint over the surface. Once you’ve applied the paint, remove the silkscreen carefully while the paint is still wet.
Note: I used a combination of different craft paints to achieve the ecru color paint.

    1. Hi Judy,
      You have to use a few very light coats. Keep the spray paint can moving. Don't let it saturate an area. Spray painting is a challenge for me because I tend to be impatient and want to get it all covered. I have to force myself to be patient. Hope that helps!
