Create Decoupage Bottle Art

Today I am sharing a project that was inspired by my almost 22 year old daughter, Elisabeth. She wanted to make a fun gift for her college roommates to celebrate their upcoming birthdays. We thought about personalizing a bottle of Prosecco using Decoupage Bottle Art as a beautiful, handmade gift.

By using Valentine-themed napkins and following the same process as my pretty decoupaged planter, this decoupage bottle art is a fantastic way to add a unique touch to your Valentine’s Day! Let’s get started!

Decoupage Bottle Art materials: Prosecco, white paint, Mod Podge, paint brush, and Valentine's Day napkins

Materials Needed:

  • Bottle: I used a Prosecco Bottle.
  • Paint: I used Deco Art in Warm White.
  • Painter’s Tape: I used Frog Tape.
  • Decoupage Medium: Mod Podge or any other decoupage glue
  • Decorative Napkin or Paper: Napkins, tissue paper, or thin decorative paper with patterns (I purchased mine at Home Goods, but you can find some similar ones here and here.
  • Paintbrush: Small brush for applying paint and Mod Podge
  • Scissors: Used for cutting out the desired patterns or images

Decoupage Bottle Art process: white painted Prosecco bottle with label taped off


  1. Prepare the Bottle:
    • Using painter’s tape, tape off the label, so you will not get paint on it.
  2. Paint the Bottle:
    • With acrylic craft paint, apply three to four coats of paint, allowing the paint to dry between coats.
  3. Choose Decorative Paper:
    • Select napkins with patterns you like.
    • Open your napkin and separate the layers of the napkin. Be sure to use only one layer of the napkin. You can toss the other layers.
    • Cut out the desired shapes or images.
  4. Apply Mod Podge:
    • Use a paintbrush to apply a thin layer of Mod Podge to a small section of the bottle.
  5. Add Decorative Napkin:
    • Carefully place the cut-out paper onto the wet Mod Podge.
    • Smooth out any wrinkles or bubbles with your fingers or a clean brush.
  6. Layer and Repeat:
    • Apply more Mod Podge over the paper to seal it.
    • Repeat the process, layering more paper as desired.
  7. Finish the Design:
    • Experiment with different patterns and colors to create a beautiful, unique design.
    • Allow each layer to dry before adding the next.
  8. Seal the Project:
    • Once you’re happy with your design, let the bottle dry completely.
    • Apply a final layer of Mod Podge over the bottle for added protection.
  9. Display or Gift:
    • Once everything is dry and sealed, your decoupage bottle art is ready to be enjoyed and displayed.
    • You can use it as a decorative piece or give it as a personalized gift.
