Here are ten uses for empty wine bottles!
There are many ways to turn a wine bottle into a candle holder depending on what look you are going for. A quick, easy and effective look is to stick a tapered candle in the lid of the bottle (instead of the cork) and when the candle burns, the wax will melt down the bottle creating a romantic and rustic looking candle holder.
With a little more effort and skill, you could cut the bottom off the bottle and sit it over a candle using multiple bottles with different heights candles can create an effective centrepiece to your table.
Use long and thick-stemmed flowers to get the most effective look (for example, a single red rose, a sunflower, gerberas or orchids).
Turn the bottle upside down and push it to the ground. Using multiple bottles in a row can create a border to your vegetable garden or flower bed. Using different coloured wine bottles or by pushing the bottles into the ground at different heights can further add to this creative look.
Are you a fan of the latest décor trend of having words around your house? If you are, buy some chalkboard paint and paint your bottles (make sure you remove the label and clean the bottle first).
Line a number of bottles up in a row and make a word by writing one letter on each bottle, this can create a unique and fun decoration to any room. Alternatively use them to write special messages to family members or friends or write the dinner menu and place it in the middle of the table!
Fill an empty bottle with sand and place it on your window sill. You could also use different coloured sand and layer it to create another beach-inspired look.
Letter in a bottle
Ok so you may not be shipwrecked on a desert island, but writing a letter, rolling it up and putting it into a bottle is a creative way of giving a romantic letter to your loved one. Granted they will probably have to break the bottle to get the letter out, but until they do, it is a pretty unique gift wrapping idea.
Kitchen storage for home-made vinegars and oils
You will need to buy a pourer to do this, but why not store kinds of vinegar, oils or any other cooking liquids in an empty wine bottle. You could paint the bottle, superglue diamantes or other decorations to jazz the bottle up a bit.
Use empty wine bottles to store cold water in your fridge. Not only do they take up little space, but also provide an interesting addition to your dinner table.
You can use old wine bottles to create an interesting and rustic-looking soap pump in the bathroom. You will need to find a pump lid that will fit the top of your wine bottle (many arts and craft stores sell these) and then fill it with the soap of your choice.
To further add to your bathroom décor you could use another bottle with a pourer lid to store bath or massage oils.
So this one takes a bit more time, skill and the correct drill piece, but if you have all of these then you can make a very unique and attractive table lamp. To do this, drill a hole in the lower side of the bottle (not in the base) and then stick a string of fairy or Christmas lights inside.
Use the drilled hole to allow the wire to come out and then plug it into a power source.
