Collaged Map Wine Bottle

Over the past few months, I’ve had a lot of fun creating decorative wine bottles, so I wanted to make a video showing everyone how to make my favorite one – the map collage bottle. I’ve been really inspired by content posted to various map-related Tumblrs lately, and collaging the maps in this way makes for a really interesting and beautiful texture. I also had fun using the macro lens I borrowed from a friend, and may have gone a bit overboard with the gratuitous focusing. But, I hope you enjoy the video and additional photos below, and let me know if you decide to make one!

    I recently started making paper flowers with one of my friends and I’m totally stealing this collaged wine bottle idea to hold them. :-)

    we love this map collage wine bottle idea – thanks !  can we just use elmers glue ?

  • Heather Rogers

    Any PVA type glue should work. But do glaze/varnish after as PVA glue – like that used in the video – will yellow with time.

    If you were to make this with photos around the bottle instead of the map will it work? Or will the ink come out of the photos and run
