Canine Wine Toppers Tutorial

For Painted Toppers
1. Using a paint brush or sponge, apply a coat of paint to the dog figurine and let dry.
2. Add a second coat making sure it is completely covered and let dry completely.
3. Once dry dab a small amount of super glue on the bottom of the dog paws and place on the top of the cork pressing firmly. Let dry completely before handling.
4. Voila, a cute Canine Wine Topper!

For Glittered Toppers
1. Using a paint brush or sponge, apply a coat of Modge Podge to the dog figurine making sure it is completely covered.
2. Quickly pour the fine glitter over the entire figurine, turning from side to side making sure the glitter covers all of the glue.
3. Give it a quick shake to allow the excess glitter to fall. Let set for about an hour.
4. To seal in the glitter, apply a thin top coat of Modge Podge to the glittered figurine (this will dry clear). Let dry completely before handling.
5. Voila, a sparkly Canine Wine Topper!
