If you don’t have just the right colors or want to carry out the theme of a specific occasion, we recommend using Sugar Artists’ Acrylic spray paint. It is the first artists spray paint made using harvested sugar cane, has way less toxins and comes in a zillion different colors!
We used puff paint for the three-dimensional effect that makes this craft look so good. It adds texture and adheres especially well to glass.
We’ve done a few designs to inspire you. Copy them or come up with your own! Just be sure to practice your puff paint skills on paper before attempting to do them on the bottles.

how to make wine bottle vases
- empty wine, liquor or beer bottles
- puffy paint
- SUGAR Artists’ Acrylic spray paint
- flowers (optional)
- Remove any labels from bottles and wipe clean. Then practice drawing what you want your design to look like on a piece of paper. You’ll want to experiment with the puff paint to get a feel for how it will work.
- Once you’re ready, begin to dot on your puff paint onto the bottle. Start at the top and work your way down. If you want to decorate the back, allow the front to dry first. When your design is complete, allow it to dry for at least 30 minutes.
- Once your puff paint is dry, cover the entire glass with one coat of primer and then several coats of Sugar spray paint (we used the toffee and vanilla colors), allowing paint to dry in between, until paint is evenly coated all around.
- Arrange flowers in bottles and display!
