Creative Ways to Reuse Your Wine Bottles

If your holidays are often graced by wine drinking, wine bottles in your home will stack up fast. You can put them in the recycle bin to rid your home of the clutter. But, these bottles possess such a nice shape and color that throwing them away would be a waste. Do you have time to spare? Here are some creative ways by which you can reuse wine bottles.

First of all, you will need to remove the label on the bottle. To easily scratch off the label, soak the wine bottles in water with low heat. When the label gets soft, it will be easier for you to remove it using dishwashing liquid and scotch brite. If you're not comfortable with this process, invest on a glass scorer because it can save you a lot of effort and time.

You can create a bottle wall with your wine bottles instead of beer bottles. A bottle wall is an architectural feature that is employed in most houses in order to allow more sunlight to come in. It helps homeowners to save money from electricity without sacrificing their privacy.

You can also use wine bottles as vases. But, don't just place a bunch of flowers inside your clean wine bottles. Paint them first with chalkboard paint. The matte finish when the paint dries will allow you to write messages on your repurposed wine bottles just like this. (photo right)

Wine bottles make wonderful wind chimes and chandeliers too. If you don't know how to start with these decorative pieces from scratch, you can always check instructional videos online. But you can always add your personal touches to make these decors look unique.
