About Me

I've been into dollhouse miniatures since the early 1990's now and when I realized how much I've learned during that time, I thought I'd make a blog to share my knowledge with others. I'm mostly auto-deduct, but always found help on the Internet and in specific books. The mini-world starts and ends with your own imagination, so let there be no limit. And never say : I CAN'T .... because you can, you just need to try and have the necessary know-how. And that's the main reason why I started this blog, because I wanna share what I know with newbies in the miniature world or anybody else who might be interested in sharing what I've learned so far. So, hopefully, I'll be able to provide some useful hints, tips and tricks for those of you out there just starting with this wonderful hobby

DIY Wine and Champagne Bottles

To begin with, I would like to say that I found the idea on how to make the bottles here :

For those of you who speak french, it will be easier of course, but even if you don't, the picture are very explicite, so I think you'll get it.

I've tried to find a way on how to make my own wine bottles for a very long time and I tried out many different techniques, but none of them really got me the results I wanted.

I must say, when I tried this technique here, I only made 1 bottle at a time and they ended up in the trash. ALL OF THEM !!! But then, after a few more tries, the bottles slowly started to look better and even if the one's I'm about to show you here are not perfect yet, I thought they were at least worth sharing.

I made a few baskets for my bottles and here, with the pencil next to them, 
you can see how small they are

These are a few of the bottles I made, different models (mostly from bottles I bought in Miniature Shops, but some also made with polymer clay ... to have a "model" to work with.

They're sooooo tiny .... 😊😊

And look what happens when you get distracted .... by the cat !!!!
The label is upside down, hahaha



  1. What a nice collection of wine bottles, and I think that you've done a Great Job with them all!

  2. Thanks Elizabeth .... I'm doing even better now that I had some "training", lol .... I especially love the one with the label glued upside down, haha, wanted to throw it away, but then I decided to keep it, just for fun.
    Maybe I'll create a Pinterest Board about DIY miniatures going wrong, would be fun too I guess.
