13 Amazing Wine Bottle Crafts

Attention wine drinkers! Don’t throw away your wine bottles once they are empty. Start saving your wine bottles for these fun and decorative wine bottle crafts. You’ll be amazed at what you can do with a simple wine bottle. There are lots of ideas for both inside and outside the home.

My most favorite wine bottle craft is the one that I did covering the bottle in birch bark.  I basically transformed a wine bottle into a decorative rustic vase. The project was a lot of fun and very rewarding. Not only did I get some new rustic decor but I was able to recycle a wine bottle creatively. Here are some more ideas to try.

Wine Bottle Crafts To Try

I first made a winter vase from an idea that I had floating around in my head.  It was an easy project and I already had all of the material in my craft room.

Winter Vase Wine Bottle Craft

To start, I painted a wine bottle with 3 coats of Martha Stewart’s pearl acrylic paint.  Once the paint was dry, I added some snow-tex and the top and neck area and sprinkled that with glamour dust while the snow-tex was still wet.  Then, I wrapped the upper neck and bottom with some jute twine that I glue in place with fabric glue just at the ends.  To finish the whole thing off, I added some vintage typewriter keys to spell the word “live” and glued those down the center of the bottle with E6000 craft glue.
