Marriage is a special moment for every couple in love. I want this important day to be remembered forever. That is why so much attention is paid to wedding accessories. This also applies to the symbolic bottle of champagne, which, according to tradition, the young people open immediately after the solemn ceremony of exchanging rings.
We will tell you how to decoupage a wedding bottle of champagne to present it as a gift to the happy newlyweds. Clean, noble, festive white color — it is he who is most associated with the wedding, therefore our craft will be made in white.
We will need:
- a bottle of champagne;
- acrylic (white);
- acrylic lacquer;
- PVA glue;
- several postcards.
- To begin with, the bottle should be thoroughly cleaned of “native” labels, degreased with alcohol and primed with two layers of white acrylic. From postcards pre-coated with acrylic varnish on both sides, we remove all layers of paper, at the same time composing the future drawing. We place these fragments in warm water for 30 minutes, then roll all the paper off them. The result should be transparencies with pictures.
- Next, we continue the wedding decoupage on champagne by cutting out the necessary fragments from the films. We dilute PVA glue in water, and with this mixture we glue fragments of the image onto the bottle. Then we decorate the top of the bottle and the gaps between the fragments with white and blue paint using a sponge.
- If there are some interesting decor elements in stocks (in our case, porcelain roses), they can be attached to the craft. A master class on decoupage of wedding champagne with your own hands should be completed with acrylic varnish, covering the entire craft in two layers. It is allowed to use silver glitter, which will add shine to the bottle. On a satin ribbon tied around the neck, you can make a few silver dots. Small beads decorated with green glitter will look beautiful on the back of the bottle.
In general, having mastered the basics of decoupage technique, you can experiment with decor, focusing on your own taste. Keep in mind that an excess of decorations will make the craft look clumsy and ridiculous. And the original gift, made for the newlyweds with a soul, they will keep for a long time in memory of the wonderful family birthday!
