1 A Beautiful Vase
One of the most creative ways to reuse wine bottles is by simply making some beautiful vases that will catch everyone’s attention. You can decorate a bottle with washi tape or you could wrap your bottles in twine or yard. You could even use nail polish to paint more intricate designs. Just let your imagination run wild and be creative!
2 Boot Storage
This is a very helpful way to reuse wine bottles and no, I’m not joking. If you have tall boots that tend to flop or fall over in the closet, you can put wine bottles into them just to hold them upright. You can also fill those bottles with pebbles or sand if you keep having a problem but I’m sure that this is the best way to fix it.
3 Chalkboard Bottles
Just wash and dry your bottles and soak them in warm water to get the labels to come off easily. Then simply buy a can of chalkboard spray paint and apply two light coats. Now you can draw anything you want on them, like your dinner party menu, messages for your sweetheart or you can even use them as vases.
4 Infused Oils or Simple Syrup
This is a great gift idea and it’s not that hard to do it either. You can use a very clean wine bottle, then make your own infused oils or simple syrup, pour them into that bottle and just attach a personalized label. You can write whatever you like on that label. I’m sure your gift will be a real sensation.
5 Make a Lamp
Another great way to reuse a wine bottle is by making a lamp out of it. It will only cost you about $10 since you can use hardware from an old lamp you don’t like anymore instead of buying new materials from the hardware store. The result is absolutely spectacular, so why not give it a try?
6 Garden Edging
This DIY project will involve quite a lot of wine bottles but a garden edging made from reused wine bottles can look pretty amazing and even chic. You can even leave the labels on and allow them to weather off naturally. This will save you a lot of work and time, so try it and see how amazing this project is!
7 Soap Dispenser
Yes, you could even make a lovely soap dispenser out of a reused wine bottle. Just outfit it with a pump or drizzle top and turn that plain wine bottle into an elegant soap dispenser. It looks fantastic and it’s a nice break from an ugly plastic bottle.
