Ideal for adding a distinct touch to weddings, anniversaries, and corporate gatherings, personalised champagne bottles transform ordinary occasions into memorable festivities. Incorporating glitter into the design is one of the more innovative champagne bottle personalisation ideas—not only enhancing their visual appeal but also infusing a dose of creativity and sparkle.

This article delves into the art of crafting DIY glitter champagne bottles, focusing on methods to ensure the durability of the sparkle and addressing important safety considerations. Read for how to create your own champagne label with glitter and turn a standard champagne bottle into a dazzling masterpiece.

DIY Glitter Champagne Bottles

Creating a DIY personalised champagne bottle at home is a delightful way to add a personal and glamorous touch to your celebration, especially with glitter. Follow this step-by-step guide to ensure your sparkling creation stuns and stays looking luxurious.

Step-by-step Guide:

Materials Needed:

  • Fine or ultra-fine glitter

  • Craft glue or a clear adhesive

  • Alcohol wipes (for cleaning the bottle)

  • Protective gloves (to keep your hands clean)

  • A tray or a covered surface (to catch excess glitter)

  1. Choosing the right type of champagne bottle: start with a smooth-surfaced champagne bottle, preferably one with minimal embossing. Brands that offer elegantly shaped bottles that serve as excellent canvases:
    1. Lanson

    2. Bollinger

    3. Billecart-Salmon

    4. Dom Perignon

    5. Laurent Perrier

  1. Preparing the surface for glittering: clean the bottle thoroughly to remove any oils or residues. An alcohol wipe can ensure that the surface is completely clean, which is crucial for effective adhesive application.

  2. Applying the base coat: use a clear adhesive or a craft glue that dries clear. Apply evenly across the surface where you intend to add glitter. This base coat will be the foundation that holds the glitter in place.

  3. Selecting and applying the right type of glitter: choose fine glitter for a more sophisticated sheen, as it adheres better and provides a more uniform sparkle. Sprinkle the glitter over the bottle, covering the glued area completely.

Top tip: Rotate the bottle as you apply the glitter to ensure even coverage. Tap off the excess glitter, and if there are sparse areas, reapply glue and glitter accordingly.

The type of glitter you choose can significantly affect the bottle's appearance. Ultra-fine glitter creates a smooth, elegant sparkle, while chunkier glitter can give a more textured, festive look. Holographic glitter can add a multi-dimensional effect, catching the light beautifully and adding depth to your bottle's appearance.

If you’re concerned about the environmental impact of your personalised champagne gift, there are biodegradable types of glitter you can use, like Bioglitter, which is made from plant material. Reflecting on the event’s theme will guide your choice of glitter type, making your champagne bottle a centrepiece of your celebration and a memorable artefact of the occasion.

Sealing Your Sparkle

Once you've transformed your champagne bottle with a glittery facade, the next crucial step is to seal the sparkle. This process not only ensures the longevity of your creation but also enhances its aesthetic appeal. If you plan to give a personalised champagne bottle as a gift, this will make sure the effect is preserved from design to delivery. So, how do you seal glitter on glass without losing sparkle?

The Importance of Sealing Glitter:

  • Sealing glitter helps to lock in the sparkle and prevents it from flaking off, ensuring that your bottle remains as dazzling as when you first made it.

  • A good sealant enhances the glitter's shine and can give it a professional, finished look.

  • Sealing provides a layer of protection against moisture and handling, which is essential for items that will be used and displayed at events like weddings and corporate events.

  • Spray sealants are ideal for glass as they provide an even coat without disturbing the glitter underneath. Look for products specifically designed for use on glass and glitter to ensure compatibility and optimal results. Take a look at this Reddit thread on the best sealants for glitter on glass. A high-gloss acrylic sealer like Jesomite or Mod Podge spray sealant is perfect for this kind of project.

Application Techniques:

  1. Ensure your workspace is well-ventilated and cover surfaces to protect them from spray mist. Clean the glittered area of the bottle once more to remove any loose particles.

  2. Choose a clear, waterproof sealant that is safe for use on glass.

  3. Step-by-Step Guide to Applying the Sealant:

  • Hold the spray can approximately 6-8 inches away from the bottle.

  • Spray in a steady back-and-forth motion, covering all glittered areas.

  • Apply multiple light coats rather than a single heavy one to avoid saturating the glitter.

Allow the sealant to dry for at least 20 minutes between coats. Full curing usually takes around 24 hours, depending on the product and environmental conditions.

Top tips for Maintaining the Sparkle Over Time:

  • Store the bottle in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.

  • Handle the bottle with care, especially when uncorking, to avoid scraping the glitter off.

  • Periodically check the sealant and apply a new coat if the sparkle begins to dull or if the glitter starts to flake off.

By following these steps, you'll ensure that your glittered champagne bottle retains its stunning appearance, making it a reusable and cherished part of celebrations for years to come.

Presentation Tips for Your Glittered Champagne Bottles

When presenting your glittered champagne bottle, consider the occasion. For milestones like weddings, anniversaries, baby showers, or significant birthdays, placing the bottle in a luxurious personalised champagne hamper alongside fine chocolates, artisanal cheeses, and delicate glassware can make a lasting impression.

For an extra touch of spectacle when the champagne is opened, sprinkle a bit of edible glitter into the champagne flutes to watch them shimmer with delight. Such thoughtful presentation not only elevates the gift but also enhances the celebratory experience, making every sip and moment truly memorable.

Glitter and Drink Safety

When adorning drinkware with glitter, especially champagne bottles intended for celebrations, ensuring safety is as important as enhancing aesthetics. It’s crucial to consider the safety implications of using glitter on items that will come into contact with consumables.

Regulations and Guidelines:

  • Only use materials that are explicitly approved by the Food Standards Agency (FSA) for use in contact with food and beverages to avoid health hazards.

  • Glitter should only be applied to the exterior parts of the bottle that are not likely to come into contact with the drink, such as the base or neck above the label.

  • Edible glitter is made from ingredients that are safe to consume, typically consisting of sugar, acacia (gum arabic), maltodextrin, cornstarch, and colour additives approved for food use. It dissolves in liquids, making it safe for inclusion in drinks like champagne.


Can you put edible glitter in champagne?

Yes, edible glitter that is specifically made for culinary use and meets food safety standards can be safely added to champagne for a sparkling effect.

How do you ensure glitter does not contaminate the drink?

Use glitter only on parts of the bottle that do not come into direct contact with the champagne, and keep it well away from the bottle opening. Always ensure that the glitter is sealed to prevent shedding.

What are the recommended types of edible glitter for use in drinks?

Look for edible glitter products that are labelled as non-toxic and food-safe, such as those available from culinary speciality stores.
