5 Fun Ways to Upcycle Your Wine Bottles

 

Love Wine? If so, you may find yourself having a bit of recycling. However, there are several ways to upcycle those bottles into crafty ideas. So, if you have been looking for something creative to do, grab a bottle of your favorite red and let’s get to work—here are five fun ways to upcycle your wine bottles.

Assign a Number

This is an ideal project for the crafty bride to use as her table numbers at the reception. Take how many ever bottles you need to place one number each on the bottle. Find several colors of spray paint that you like and start painting. Paint the entire bottle with several coats of base color. Then, use a stencil to help paint the other number in a coordinating color. Assemble wherever you need to assign a number and then you are done. If you want to dress it up, add twine and a few flowers. You can also use chalkboard paint and write in the number with chalk.

A Delightful Soap Dispenser

Remove all labels and paint however you want or just leave plain. Either way, when you place your soap pump top in place, you will have a great looking countertop display. Plus, your old wine bottle is now serving a useful purpose.

Simplistic Centerpieces

If you have an outdoor area that can use some sprucing up when entertaining family and friends, try using a few of your freshly cut flowers from the garden and place directly in a wine bottle with a bit of water. Again, you can remove the label to allow the natural beauty of the glass to shine.

Accent Lighting

Take your bottle and drill a hole near the bottom. Have some water ready as you drill. You will need to do this in order to push the lights through the bottle and have a place for the chord. Your hole will need to be large enough to slip the lights through one by one. Once you're done, you’ll have a bottle full of fairies.

Make it Metal

If you’re looking for some nice accent pieces for a bedroom, perhaps a side table, or mantel, try your hand at turning your favorite merlot into a faux-mercury glass bottle. Take your bottles and remove the label. Get all of the adhesive completely off. You may need to use nail polish remover. Pour Epsom salts into your bottle and spray with Krylon Looking Glass on the inside. Swirl around the salt so that it coats the inside of your bottle with the mirror paint. Let dry, and you have a great looking mercury glass bottle.

So, if you haven’t gotten started, go ahead and start sipping. You’ll have fun and create something quite useful.
