KatJoy227:  I didn’t diy any of my centerpieces but what if you did one or two gold wine bottles and the remaining one or two mason jars for each table? That way there is like a height difference and you won’t have to spray paint so many bottles! 

Sounds gorgeous though! Have you scoured Pinterest already?

I DIY’ed mine but I used three different kinds of bottles with different heights. That way I only had to spraypaint about 14 wine bottles. The numbers were from JoAnn Fabrics over an ivory wine bottle label sticker you’d get if you made and bottled your own wine.

We’re doing wine bottle centrepieces but it will be a bit different… I’m turning the bottles into hurricane candle covers and will be surrounding sets of three of them with succulents.

I say just keep at it. DIY projects can get to be a hassle (I DIY’d all of our favors – set of 4 tiles made into coasters using photos that my husband and I took during various travels and there were plenty of times I wanted to quit!). Just break it up into phases, doing a group at a time instead of all at once, so like, set an afternoon aside to do a set amount of tables. You WILL complete them! 

Do you still like what the finished result will be? 

My husband purchased, cut, and stained pieces of wood for our runners. It was a headache for him to do it but we knew that the end result would be what we wanted for our centerpieces and it came out beautiful. Just keep at it!

We have only done a few so far as our wedding is not until September, but we purchased a bottle cutter off of Amazon for only $40CAD and it is working well. There’s about a 75-80% success rate with bottle cutting, so you need to expect to break a few. It isn’t especially difficult though, removing the labels is definitely the hardest part of it all. We’ll be using around 80 bottles.
