How to: create perfect summer dining

In the first of our summer dining features we show you how to create beautiful vases for your table centrepiece from empty wine bottles.

You will need:

Empty wine bottles

Newspaper/dust sheets

Elastic bands

PlastiKote Stained Glass Spray Paint


stained glass bottles step by step

How to:


  1. Make sure the bottles are clean and dry.
  2. Spread newspaper/dust sheets out in a well-ventilated working area or preferably outside.
  3. Place the elastic bands around the bottle to suit your chosen design or pattern.
  4. Stick a garden cane into the earth and place the bottle over it. This will allow you to spray the whole bottle without touching it.
  5. Apply two to three coats of PlastiKote Stained Glass spray paint, depending on how translucent a finish you would like. We chose Stained Glass in Pink, Green and Yellow. Allow 5 – 10 minutes between coats.
  6. The bottles will be touch dry in 30-50 minutes and thoroughly dry in 2-3 hours.
  7. Remove the elastic bands.
  8. Use as table centrepieces, flower vases or as ornaments!
