Now, let me tell you the reason why this anniversary party needed to be so special was because my parents (aka my mom and step father). Neither of them have never been married this long. Their prior marriages did not hit the 10 year milestone. So this was kind of a big deal and I wanted them to feel the love from their friends and family in a beautiful location.

Since I was planning my parent’s party, I decided to throw a little Andre into the mix during and after the event by making a fun DIY Guest book out of a Champagne bottle.

My parents absolutely loved this craft and it was quite the conversation starter.

Epic with Andre DIY Guestbook Upcycled Champagne bottle 04 Here are the supplies I used to make this craft.

  • Washi tape
  • Chalkboard Paint
  • Paint Brushes
  • Tacky Glue
  • Matte finish Mod Podge
  • Photograph
  • Silver metallic paint
  • Frog Tape
  • Paint Markers and Gold Sharpie

It was a pretty simple project.

Step 1

Soak the empty champagne bottle in warm water and rub some dish soap on the labels for about 5 min to soften and remove.

Step 2

Paint the entire bottle with chalkboard paint and allow to dry after applying a couple of layer.

Step 3

Add frog tape to a portion of the bottle to mask and apply silver metallic paint. After a couple of layers, allow time to dry.

Step 4

Print out a photo of the happy couple to cut out in a heart shape to glue and mod podge to the bottle

Step 5

Apply Washi tape where you so choose

Step 6

Dress it up with the paint markers and Ta-Dah! You are ready!

Andre really helped me make this party a memorable experience not only for me, but for my amazing parents that deserved a epic night to celebrate.

The cool thing about Andre, is that this champagne tastes amazing by itself but you can also mix it in with other beverages to make it more Epic!
