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