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


  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!

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.
