Our friend, Joe, had dropped off an old wine holder and it was just screaming for a makeover!  I decided to take it from 90's grapes to beachy fun!

Here is how it turned out:

You will need:

-  Wine holder
-  Wire cutters
-  Parchment, blue and medium gray acrylic paint
-  Hot glue and glue that adheres to plastic
-  Faux sea glass resin piece
-  Primer that adheres to glass, metal and plastic
-  Thin gauge wire

Here is the video tutorial:

1.  Remove the grapes and leaves off of the basket. 
2.  Clean and dry.
3.  Prime entire piece.
4.  Using a paint brush, load half of the brush with parchment paper and half with gray.  Use both colors on one brush to streak the basket.
5.  Do the same on the handle, but use mostly gray.
6.  Allow to dry, then wire back together.
7.  Use a combination of hot glue and a Weldbond or The Ultimate glue to attach the faux sea glass piece.

That's it!  Now you have a perfect hostess gift!
