Repurpose a thrifted trophy into a unique and unexpected glittery trophy bottle topper.  Learn how to glitter without the mess (because who wants glitter in their wine?)

Yesterday I showed you how to turn inexpensive thrifted trophies into fun, unique bottle stoppers. (Click HERE for that tutorial.) How fun is this?  I used chalk paint in my other tutorial, and this time I’m going with a “look” that’s more appropriate for Valentine’s Day.  I just LOVE this luscious red color and especially love the sparkly, glitter finish that DOES NOT SHED!  Woo hoo!  I really don’t like glitter because of the  mess it creates, but I promise that THIS finish is no mess at all (aside from cleaning your brushes!)

I wanted to give my piece a sparkly paint finish without the mess of glitter.  That’s why I love Glamour Dust Paint!  You get the beauty of glitter without glitter shedding everywhere.  Who wants glitter in their wine?  Yuck!

Supplies used to make this glittery trophy bottle topper:
  • Trophy top
  • Cork
  • Acrylic or craft paint
  • Glamour Dust Paint

Step one:  Paint the trophy top.

Step two:  Apply multiple applications of the Glamour Dust paint, letting the paint dry before adding another layer.  One or two layers is enough for light shimmer.  I wanted a heavily glittered look, so I applied 4 layers of paint.

Step three:  Use an awl to make a hole on the center of the cork.  Carefully screw the trophy top in place.  You can add super glue before you attach it if desired, but I’ve found that isn’t necessary.  You can see more detailed steps for this process here.

This fun bottle stopper would make a cute Valentine gift tag tied on to a wine gift bag.  You could also use this idea to top a mason jar or a larger corked jar and make a fun storage container.  Have fun crafting and creating!

And don’t toss the rest of the trophy!  We can use, that, too.  That tutorial is coming soon!
