How to make Wine Bottle Labels

If the label feels like a plastic-like sticker that would come off easily from the bottle..then keep the empty bottle in warm water for 20 min. you can try to remove the label,and if it came from bottle,then try the soaking method....most wine labels are basically paper with glue on back of them

Heat a open wine bottle in an oven for 10 minutes at 100 degrees F (38 degrees C), or use a hair dryer set on low Or, pour boiling water into the bottle, and let sit for 15 minutes. Careful, it will be hot

Peel off the corner of the label with a knife, then pulling the label off, slowly, so as to not rip the label. You need to do this before the wine bottle cools. Heating it up melts the glue; when the bottle cools, the glue does, too.

Place the label onto some stiff paper or card stock. Try to pick a colour that matches the label or is neutral. Don't worry about aligning it with the sides. It can be as off-kilter as you want. Once the label is on the paper, check on any other bottles you have in the

Lay a picture frame over the label. Center the label as best you can in the frame. Mark lines with pencil on the outer border of the frame. Using a ruler, draw a complete rectangle around the label.

Cut around the label on the lines you drew and place the cut-out into the picture frame. If it doesn't fit, trim the outside until it does
