How To: Make a Wine Bottle Vase

If you’re like me, you probably enjoy a nice glass of wine with dinner or hosts dinner parties where guests bring you bottles of wine.  Eventually you’ll be left with empty wine bottles of all sizes.  What’s a girl to do with all those empty wine bottles?? Make vases of course!  Get creative and design a vase that works with your home decor.

Things You’ll Need:

  • Empty wine bottles, washed, dried and labels removed
  • Glue Gun
  • Ribbons, laces, buttons, whatever you have lying around
  • Acrylic paint – check your local art supply store and see which they recomment
  • Masking tape – optional
  • Bouquet of flowers – or a single rose

Directions:

  1. Start by removing the labels. This can be really simple or difficult. I soaked my bottle in a tub of water overnight and was able to easily remove the label.
  2. Make sure bottle is cleaned and dried – inside and outside.
  3. Here is the fun part: get creative!  Use masking tape to create shapes or lines on areas that you DO NOT want painted.  You can even use a glue gun and attach ribbons, lace, etc to the vase.  Make sure you let everything dry fully – approximately a day – before filling with water and flowers.
  4. Add your flowers and showcase it on your dining room or coffee table!


Tips:
You can always go au natural if you prefer the simple, clean look of a wine bottle.  Just make sure you get rid of all the sticky residue from the label.

Enjoy!
