DIY Wine Bottle Chalkboard Centerpiece



A couple of weeks ago, we were contacted by Protea Wines.They asked if we'd be interested in partnering up with them for their upcoming campaign, Art Blossoms.  Basically they'd send us two bottles of wine to drink and then we were given the task to create something using our empty wine bottles.  After we had this beautiful new masterpiece completed, Protea would choose several of their Pinterest followers to win the art created by all of us bloggers!  How awesome is that!?!?


Let's be honest here....they had me at "free wine"... ;) 

But, then.....I looked up the brand and the wine and I was totally intrigued with the beauty of these bottles and the idea behind this campaign.  In their words....


"Protea Wines is proud to present Art Blossoms, a campaign by women, for women with the goal of encouraging art and sustainability to blossom all over the country.  Designed for upcycling, Protea wine bottles motivate others to create beauty and express individuality. That's why we've invited some of the most inspiring women on Pinterest to make something new with our wine bottles.  Win one of these beautiful creations for yourself - all you have to do is follow the Protea Wines Pinterest page!"


Seriously though, check out these beauties...


And, I'll just go ahead and add it in there that the wine tasted mighty fine, too! ;) 

I decided I wanted to make some sort of a Chalkboard holder out of my wine bottle.  I don't do ANY project without the help and support of Mr. Bonfires & Wine so he got right to work helping me!  We also enlisted the help of a cute little 2 year old that prefers to wear her boots with no pants...


So here's what you'll need to create your own Wine Bottle Chalkboard Centerpiece (just in case you don't win this one!).  

A tree limb that will fit somewhat snuggly into your wine bottle.  
A chalkboard (mine's from Hobby Lobby)
Jute
Hot Glue Gun
Protea Wine Bottle


We decided where we wanted the chalkboard to be on the tree limb and I market it with a pencil.  Then, I put a line of hot glue right over my pencil line.  We added more hot glue to the edges once we had it secured.

We let that dry and then added jute to the neck of the bottle also using hot glue.


I wrote on the chalkboard and we were done! 



 This was a super simple, easy and cheap craft that makes for such a cute centerpiece!  It could even be used for your daily menu planner or a "Welcome" sign for your entryway! 









Sooo...what do y'all think?  We're so happy with how it turned out and cannot wait to send it to one of the winners!

Make sure you're following Protea on Pinterest for a chance to win!  

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hope you have a great week!
