Pumpkin and Ghost bottles

I found this on Pinterest . . . but one problem - I don't drink wine.  So I called around and found some people I know that do or have neighbors that do and they saved me some for this project.
I had to use baby oil to get all the labels off (since I don't have Goo Gone - I know, who doesn't have goo gone?)  And then I spray painted the green bottle orange (after taping off the top for the stem).  And I didn't want a clear ghost, so I used Rustoleum's Frosted Glass spray to foggy it up a bit.
I cut the faces out of vinyl.  Still not sure if I am liking the ghost faces, but it's tricky to get a ghost face to not just look like 3 circles/ovals.  I wanted a smaller ghost, so I cleaned out our soy sauce for that one.  But the neck of the bottle isn't as pretty as the wine bottle was.

  3. These are SO cute! We don't drink wine either, but very occasionally we'll get a treat and buy a glass bottle each of pop. Our recycling doesn't take glass, so I think these will definitely be what we use those glass bottles for! :)

  8. These are so cute, what a great idea! I am actually one of the few that does have goo gone... (had to remove bumper stickers from a car I bought) and that works as well, but good to know about the baby oil. Can you find the vinyl at the craft store and did you just glue it on? I wonder if a black sharpie would work as well or if it wouldn't stick to the glass. I found you on interest and love your blog, keep sharing. Follow me back at http://dormfordimes.blogspot.com/ , I just started but will have new crafts up soon!
