To make personalized bottle labels, measure the bottle's circumference, or peel off an existing label to measure it. Using word processing software, custom fit the margins to suit the measurements taken, and add images or text to the area inside the margins. Print and apply the labels using an adhesive to first secure one side of the label to the bottle, and then glue the opposite end over the first side.
If you are creating labels for a wine or glass bottle, create a label using a design that complements your decor, theme or logo. If you have a physical design, scan it into your computer, and edit the scan. Upload the image onto a blank document in a word processing software program. Use the image as the background, a border or a centered image on the label. Set the margins on the document to fit the size needed.
Print the labels onto address labels from an office supply store. Clean the glass bottle of any residue from the original label by soaking the bottle in warm water. Use dish soap for stubborn label glue. Dry the bottles, and carefully apply the new labels. Trim the labels into a new shape or place the label in an unusual place on the bottle to make it look truly unique.
