Drink Wine? If so, what do you do with the bottles?

My husband and I like to drink wine. We like to try different kinds. After a while you realize that you go through some and have all these glass wine bottles. Now I recycle them all the time. Grateful that my local recycling center recycles glass. After recycling many wine bottles, I asked myself what else can I do with them. There has to be something.

Some of my wine bottles waiting to be made into something new.

After looking around through Pinterest for ideas, I was amazed of what is out there. So many creative ideas. Awesomeness! So I created a couple of upcycled wine bottles. I think it goes well in my house with the decor. As you will see, I was going for the farmhouse look. I’ve always felt this style was best suited for me. I feel it is warm and inviting.

Are these not pretty? I love them.
Of course after removing the labels, I wrapped this jute twine all around covering the majority of the bottle. I used hot glue here and there to keep it adhered to the bottle. Then I had these flower embellishments from my scrapbooking stash. I had several different kinds of styles and sizes in which I layered them and attached them together with some flower brads. I then hot glued the flower groups onto the bottle. I think it turned out great and the flowers gave it a softer look against the course jute twine.
Now this one was fun to make as well. As you can see, I painted this bottle with white acrylic paint that I had on hand. After it dried, I glued on 3 layers of this ribbon that I got at my local dollar store. I then wrapped around, a few times, this thin jute twine from the dollar store as well. I felt like this bottle needed something more so attached these beads and key charm that was in my stash. I think it turned out great as well.

Well another upcycled project that I did. I think they turned out great. I do love where I have them in my house. I did think about trying to cut the glass for a specific project but I am not sure about it yet. I guess we’ll see if I can get my hands on the tools to cutting glass.
