Your Saturday night dinner party was a whopping success. But now that the guests have gone home, all you have left is a trio of empty wine bottles sitting on your kitchen counter and staring you down. What’s that empty wine bottle? You want to be upcycled? We can arrange that.

The unique shape and diverse hues of wine bottles make them a versatile décor piece. A green shiraz bottle could look great in your garden, and the blue chardonnay bottle filled with tea lights will add a festive touch to your side table. Here are five of our favorite ways to upcycle wine bottles:

1. Flower Vase

It’s easy to turn a wine bottle into a flower vase. Simply put water in the base and flowers in the bottle one stem at a time. You can choose to leave the label on or strip it off, spray paint the glass or leave as is.

2. Lighting Accent

If harsh overhead lighting is ruining your ambiance, use wine bottles to add a soft glow to any room. Cut a hole in the bottom of the bottle and place Christmas lights inside. Or, put the bottle over top of a lit candle for a crafty centerpiece.

4. Garden Decoration 

Upcycle your empty wine bottles for your indoor or outdoor garden! Use wine bottles to water your indoor plants, or create a hanging planter by cutting off the bottom half of your wine bottle!

5. Candlesticks

To turn your used wine bottle into a unique candlestick, all you need is a glass cutter. Simply cut off the bottom half of your wine bottle and place a candle in the neck. Voila, candlestick! This fixture will add romance to the dinner table and style to any bathroom
