It not only decorates the festive table of the young, but also plays out at competitions or wedding auctions.
Decoration of bottles with beads or rhinestones
The festive decor of champagne for a wedding looks great with rhinestones, beads, pearls or with Swarovski stones. But in order for the glue to hold all these decorations well, you need to qualitatively prepare the glass surface by correctly removing the label. First, the bottle is carefully placed in a pan with hot water for 30 minutes, and then the remnants of the adhesive with the label are easily washed off with a stiff dishcloth.
After that, the surface is wiped dry, and the bottle is completely covered with aerosol paint in several steps, so that the layers are applied evenly and the glass does not shine through. After the paint dries, a pattern is drawn on it with a simple pencil, then with tweezers and glue, rhinestones or beads are glued to the intended place. Brilliant champagne decor is ready!
