  1. 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. 2

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

  3. 3

    Candlestick. To turn your used wine bottle into a unique candlestick, all you need is a glasscutter. 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.

  4. 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. 5

    Tiki Torch. If you’re feeling ambitious, turn your empty wine bottles into tiki torches. Geradot offers this excellent kit for less than $5!
