DIY Glitter Ombré Champagne Bottle

Bar Cart Ideas

This is probably one of my favorite DIY’s I’ve ever done, and for good reason. It’s all about glitter!

Full disclosure: I actually made two of these bottles like two years ago. The plan was to DIY a champagne bottle or two, and then do a tutorial of one for the blog/YouTube. For whatever reason, years came and went and I just never got around to it. There’s a good chance I forgot just because these sparkly ombré bottles looked so pretty on my bar cart and put me in a trance. This leads me to my next point. Sure, you can drink these pretty bottles, but you can also use them as decor! Like I said, I’ve had these so long that they’ve become a staple on my bar cart. People always notice them immediately when they come over, and I love that. My bar cart is fun and colorful, and these fit in perfectly.

Another thing I love about these glitter champagne bottles is that you can give them as gifts or use them at parties. I made these for Christmas gifts a couple of years ago and loved how they turned out. I swapped out the pink glitter for red and green glitter and it looked adorable. It was easy to make and made for a memorable, unique gift.

I filmed an easy tutorial on how to make these come to life, and you’d be amazed how simple the process is! I go over all the steps in the video, but supply wise all you need is a champagne bottle (duh), the glitter colors of your choice (I went with gold to match the bottle’s foil and then pink to create an ombré effect*), some Mod Podge and a sponge brush. That’s it. Those are the only tools you need to make this sparkly statement piece.

I’m not going to lie, this DIY produces a LOT of glitter, so I’d recommend putting a garbage bag down where your workspace is. I filmed this video last week, and I’ve still been finding glitter remnants all over my place.

*If you’re using a champagne bottle with a silver foil, I’d recommend going with a silver glitter. Since you’re leaving the foil exposed, you want it to look natural and flow together.

And now for a funny story. It wasn’t funny to me at the time, but now that some time has passed it’s all good. When I filmed this video, I totally blanked out and glued the glitter in the wrong spots. I didn’t even realize I had done it until I was finishing up filming. You should have seen my face when I realized I had put the pink glitter on top and the gold on bottom (which is totally wrong). It was actually pretty funny watching that footage when I uploaded it to my computer. Thankfully, it actually didn’t end up looking bad. Plus, since I already had two other ombré bottles, I think it’s nice to have one where the ombré effect is flipped. Crisis averted!
