- Stretched artist’s canvas (or card stock paper and then frame it!)
- Favorite wine labels (soak the bottle in a sink of warm water until the label peels off without any trouble! Takes 30 min to an hour.)
- Two colors of acrylic paints to match the room in which you’re putting the painting. I used a wine color for the background, and metallic gold for the accent
- 1 or 2 pieces of scrap booking paper to match the paint you chose
- Glue stick to glue the labels onto the painting (or rubber cement if you don’t mind if the labels bubble up like mine did)
- Acrylic varnish to seal the painting
- First, decide how you would like to arrange your paper and wine labels on the canvas.
- Next, paint the canvas all one color and let dry (2-4 hours)
- Then, glue the pieces of scrap booking paper onto the canvas, and then use a glue stick to stick the wine labels to the canvas (wet glue will make the paper crinkle and bubble up, which happened to mine, which gives it character!)
- Then, to get the metallic gold effect, I took a paper towel and dipped it into a tiny bit of the gold paint and dabbed it on (like faux painting on a wall).
- Last, seal the whole thing with acrylic varnish to give it some shine and protect your work of art!
