Lighted Monster Bottle Halloween Decorations

DIY Up-Cycled Wine Bottles to Halloween Decorations

I found a really cute idea on Pinterest the other day but of course being the resourceful gal that I am I tweaked it a bit to fit the supplies I had on hand.

Here is the original pin I saw that inspired these.

And here are the ones I made,

Lighted Monster Bottles

Aren't they so cute!?! I just live then, and the kids could even helps me them. That was the best part.

• empty wine bottles
• old Christmas lights
• tissue paper in different colors
• black and white card stock
• google eyes (if desired)

ok, so you will start off with your empty wine bottles.

Then you will want to soak them in water for a few minutes.  This will loosen the glue so you can get the labels off.  

Remove the labels...

 Paint them with your Mod Podge and start covering with tissue paper.

Make some funny faces on your bottles with your card stock.  You will want to stick with simple shapes that will be seen easily since it will be back lit.  

 Add google eyes if you like, just to give them more character when they are not lit up.  

Now take your old christmas lights... 

 and start stuffing!  This is the most time consuming part...

 but aren't they worth it?  
I just love them and little one really loved working on a craft project with mommy!  I think they look so cute up there, I have them on my mantle.  I can't decide if I want to keep them there or if I will move them near the front door on Halloween but I suppose I have a little time to decide.

Halloween is getting closer and my kids are getting excited already.  Do yours know what they want to be yet?
