Personalising wine bottles provides the opportunity to express your creativity. This can be done for events such as weddings or anniversaries, or simply for a fun project. The most professional way to personalise a wine bottle is to replace the label with one that you make yourself. If your budget is a priority, replacing the label also allows you to serve a less expensive wine at an event without the guests knowing exactly what they are drinking.

  1. 1

    Order or purchase bottles of wine from your favourite wine or off-licence.

  2. 2

    Soak a paper towel in water and vinegar and place it over the label on the wine bottle. You can remove both the front and back labels or leave on the back label so you and your guests know what type of wine you are serving. Allow the paper towel to remain on the bottle until you can easily peel off the original label. Wash off any remaining residue with additional vinegar and water. Allow the wine bottle to dry thoroughly.

  3. 3

    Purchase sheets of peel-off labels that are compatible with your computer printer in the size you desire. Wine bottle labels vary in size, but using the old label as a template or guide is a good way to ensure that the label easily fits on the bottle.

  4. 4

    If you can't find ready-made labels that are attractive to you, create your own wine label using a program such as Microsoft Word. Use the "label wizard" from the project gallery in Word to find a compatible size to the bottle's original label. Be creative by adding images, words and different fonts to the labels. Print the labels on regular paper using an inkjet or laser printer .

  5. 5

    Attach the new labels to the wine bottles. For ready-made labels, simply peel off and attach. If you have printed custom labels on paper, cut the labels to size with a paper cutter and attach to the bottle with glue.

Tips and warnings

  • You can also add ribbons, glitter or sequins to the bottles to further customise the look. Wine bottle labels may be ordered from wedding or party stores, custom printed with any wording you desire.
