If you are a wine lover and let’s face it, we know you are because here you are reading our blog, you will know the dilemma of what do you do with all those old wine bottles?
Yes, you can chuck them in the recycle bin, but there are also some other beautiful things you can do with wine bottles to recycle them and do your bit for the planet with a bit of creative re-purposing.
Here are some ideas.
Make them into a vase for around your home
Get creative and pick up some funky paints from your local craft shop and give those old wine bottles a jazz up. You can paint them in any design and style that suits your home.
Give them a lick of paint and pop in some dried or fresh flowers for a pop of colour in a bathroom, bedroom or as a decorative piece in a bookcase.
If you own a café or even if you are planning a wedding, you can make your wine bottles into a nifty table number.
Again, decorate with paint, and paint on a number. They will be something different and allows you to re-purpose those pesky wine bottles.
Turn a group of wine bottles into a no-fuss centrepiece. All you need are bottles, a little water, and a few flowers. This will instantly transform your table and give it that bit of Wow factor.
Feed some of those old fairy lights that are hanging around your garage collecting dust and are only used over Christmas into the wine bottles for year-round twinkle lamps.
With some simple wiring and finding a second-hand lampshade at the local op shop, you can make wine bottles into a gorgeous bedside lamp.
Add a wick, some citronella oil from the hardware store and stones to hold the wick in place at the bottom of the bottle. Old wine bottles citronella candles can help keep the mozzies away when you are entertaining outside.
Just a few creative ways to re-purpose old wine bottles into something pretty for your home, an event or your workspace.
