Tutorial Tuesday!

Soooo it's no surprise that I'm engaged! 
And... because of that I have been getting my craft on a lot lately. 
I have a special post I've got in the works for tomorrow but, until then, I wanted to share an easy tutorial for one of the items I did. 
It's no surprise, girls like sparkle and this PARTICULAR girl likes herself some champagne. Soooo I decided to give some champagne a little sparkle and here's how.. 
I bought a four pack of the mini Korbels (from BevMo, they have some at Target as well)
I also used some glitter (Michael's), Mod Podge (any craft story), a foam brush and two paper plates. 
I started by covering the area that I wanted to sparkle with a coat of Mod Podge using my foam brush. 
I poured a generous amount of glitter onto the plate and rolled the bottle in the glitter. 
I placed the bottle on a second plate and poured the glitter onto all of the areas that still needed glitter. 

The last step (not pictured) is really personal preference. You can let the bottle sit and dry and then cover the glitter with another layer of Mod Podge to keep the glitter in tact OR you can leave it as is. The only risk with leaving it is that the glitter is MUCH more likely to end up all over the place however, it actually does look better because the Mod Podge tends to dull the sparkle of the glitter. I opted to add the top coat of Mod Podge because I know how annoying it can be to have glitter all over you. In the words of Demetri Martin "The thing about glitter is, if you get it on you, be prepared to have it on you forever 'cause glitter is the herpes of craft supplies." 
And there you have it! A simple and fun way to dress up any ole plain bottle for a gift, a party, or any occasion!
