How To Transform A Wine Jug Into Shabby Chic Beautiful

Sharing is Caring! ❤️

I love taking something that once was and transforming it into something new. Upcycling old items around the house and transforming them into useful and beautiful objects is what it’s all about. That’s why when I saw this wine jug lying around my home, I knew I could create something fun and shabby chic beautiful with it.

My love for working with jute is not new. I’ve already created a series of jute crafting projects and had so much fun working with them. I knew jute would be the perfect element to use for this project too! Of course, to match this beautiful wine jug, you will want to have the perfect set of wine glasses too!

I started with this standard wine jug – you can get them anywhere. My hubby loves wine, and I often recycle them, but this time, I decided to upcycle it instead!

Start by cleaning the wine jug and removing any labels. I used Goo Gone to remove mine – it works perfectly every time!

Be sure not to discard the cap! Once it’s painted gold, it looks beautiful!

Next – I wanted to paint where the label was and decided on gold. I used Pebeo Gedeo Gilding Wax for the label area – I love this paint, and the gold color is stunning. Next, I used two coats, and they worked perfectly. Then, I dabbed the paint on to get that bumpy look that I wanted. I also use this gilding wax for the top, neck, and lid of the wine jar.

This gilding wax is perfect for so many projects! I also used it to decorate the trim on my end table. I love this table transformation, and this paint really pulled it all together.

You can use regular gold paint, too – and create any design you want!

After the paint dried – it only took about an hour – I added a jute trim around the label area. All of the gluing was done with my favorite glue gun. That made it super easy, and the project only took about two hours from start to finish.

Next, I started wrapping the jute around the bottle – I started with the bottom and worked up. I stopped midway up as I wanted the wine to be exposed for added contrast and color.

As a final touch, I added a beaded embellishment to the label area. If you can’t make one yourself, I’m sure there are plenty of cute old pieces of jewelry you can find to add.

I am so thrilled with the results. Think of how shabby chic cute this will look on your dinner table when serving wine to your family and friends.

  1. My gosh – I am amazed what you did with this plain old wine bottle. The jute on the bottom makes it look like it is sitting inside a basket. And the embellishment makes it look like an expensive custom bottle of wine. Love this shabby chic wine jug you created.

  2. Oh my it looks like it came from a vineyard somewhere in Italy Carolann. You know those ones that you see in the travel mags with the Tuscan Villa in the background and the beautiful vines stretching on forever. It’s really turned out lovely
