My latest craze... upcycling and vintage items. Most likely due to my genetics (my mom and grandma do the exact same thing) I've found myself keeping items over the years saying to myself, I could make something really fun out of this! Sometimes I do... sometimes I don't.
Don't get me wrong, I am NOT a hoarder. At this point in my life I'm finally able to look at these items and really ask myself; do I have a project in mind
So after all the Thanksgiving feasts I noticed a number of wine bottles sitting about and tried to find a few ideas. You can check out my Upcycle ~ Wine Bottles and Corks board on Pinterest. Otherwise most of them are below.
|One of my favorite. Maybe it's because I love candles |
but probably because I LOVE Grey Goose. :)
|Wine Bottle Hurricanes|
|Home Tone has some creative ways to reuse Wine Bottles too.|
|Justina Blakeney also shows 12 ways to reuse bottles. |
I'd loved to figure out how to make the hanging plants!
|Dip them in Chalk paint. Decorate the bottles with a message |
or table numbers. Also dip the bottom of your wine in the chalk paint. Your guest
can write their names on their own glasses.
|Wit & Whistle's blog takes you through the steps of adding lights to bottles|
|A monogram cork! An easy gift to make for friends and family or make one for yourself. |
greenisuniversal-reuse.com explains the simple steps.
|Jaime walks you through the steps to create this adorable vase and |
candle holder on her Crafty Scrappy Happy blog.
|On A Yellow Bicycle blog they also have a few ideas for Bottle DIY projects.|
I love this lantern and the tiki torch (below). Both are a must do before next spring
|Bathmat made of Corks by Monica Ewing at houzz.com/|
|Get out your paint brushes and stencils. |
I found both of these through Etsy
|Another way to identify your drinking glasses from Craftzine|
|With instructions from Zero Waste Designs you can build a shelf|
|At Home Furnishings displays a beautiful centerpiece with various shapes |
and sizes of bottles and tapered candles
|And a few more centerpiece ideas from Curbly|
|If nothing else, use them as a border. Check out Trashy Wench: The Queen of Creative Reuse's |
