While shopping around a cute boutique a few years ago, I came across the cutest little hanging bottle openers. I passed on getting one because they were super expensive, and I knew that they would make an easy DIY project in the future.
It took me awhile to get around to actually making one, but with our 5th wedding anniversary coming up, I knew it would make a great, inexpensive present that we would actually use.
Here’s what you need:
- A piece of wood–I got this one from Michaels and love that it was already in the right shape and came ready to hang
- White paint
- Foam Brush
- The metal bottle opener–this one was a gift from my Uncle last Christmas. It even says Foster at the top!
- Stencil Stickers. These were a splurge ($20 at Michaels), but with a 40% off coupon and how much easier they made the process, they were worth it.
- Optional: Martha Stewart Antique and Satin Finishes
Step One: Cut out the stencil stickers and figure out how you want to place them on the wood.
Step Two: Press and stick the stencil stickers to the wood.
Step Three: Lightly paint the entire piece of wood with the white paint. Let dry about one hour. Remove the stickers once dry or continue to steps four/five.
Step Four/Five (Optional): Add one additional coat of antique and satin finishes, respectively, waiting about an hour in between each coat. Remove the stickers once dry.
Step Six: Attach your bottle opener.
Step Seven: Find the perfect place to hang!
I’m still working on step seven, but I know it will get lots of use once we find the perfect spot!
