The movie "Sideways" got you wine tasting, and even wine drinking... now what do you do with all those wine bottles that are starting to accumulate? Keep them - they are good for something. Take a look at what you can do with them with a little spray and brushstrokes.
Wine bottle (Washed and cleaned. Minimize hand/thumb marks. Dry.). Larger ones with tapered neck is best!
Newspaper or any paper to protect working surface from paints.
Wash and dry wine bottle to make sure you have a clean surface, devoid of dust which prevents good adhesion.
Arrange the paper to protect your working area. (Do this outside where there is good ventilation.)
Place the wine bottle on top of the papers. Make sure it is flat.
Spray the bottle (Follow the spray can instructions.). Spray one layer around, wait for a while, then paint another layer. Do this a couple of times until all outside surfaces are covered evenly. Some areas needing attention: Bottle lid area - make sure it is also covered but beware of spraying too long here as too much will make the spray paint drip! Bottle bottom - that can be an easily-missed area specially if your paper is crumpled.
When dry, plan the design that will be painted on the bottle surface.
Implement design with textile or acrylic paint.

DO YOU NEED TO BUY SPECIAL "GLASS" PAINT FOR IT TO ADHERE??
Very pretty bottle. I purchased a painted wine bottle at a craft fair. They left it green and painted pretty white flowers on it and put on one of those special pouring tips. I keep my olive oil in it next to the stove! Another frugal gift idea if you know how to paint.
