A wine bottle to be more specific.
Mr. Aitch and I drik wine…occasionally. Most of our wine bottles are the typical green, brownish green, dark green, or very dark green.
The little bottle on the far right contains a special olive oil now.
We emptied these this morning.
A few years ago I saw a large wreath in one of our local restaurants with 2-3 beautiful red wine bottle, grape leaves and various hanging grapes on it. I decided to make my own.
We bought the same wine and saved the empty bottle for my project. I suppose I could have asked the restaurant to save some empties for me but what fun is that?
My wreath isn’t nearly as large as the one in the restaurant and only one wine bottle fit on it.
But I like it.
And so did one of the teenage trick-or-treaters we had the other night. (I whispered to her that the bottle was empty.)
Any suggestions on what to do with all our empty wine bottles? Please leave suggestions in the comments!
A neighbor of my mother-in-law used a string of LED (the kind that don’t get hot) lights inside the bottle and decorated the outside with fake grapes and such. Leanne had one in her office at the old office.
I remember that lighted wine bottle. It had jute or raffia wrapped around the top to help hold the cord in place on the back of the bottle. I might have to make a couple of those.
Now is the time to find those LED (Christmas) lights.
That reallu tirned out nice! Good job!
I’ve seen where you coat the bottle with a light coating of mod podge or glue and then wrap yarn round and around in coils. You can change colors and make them bright and festive. Stick a sprig or two of flowers or something on the top and they look really pretty.
Yes, I’ve seen those.
Thanks for your reply.
loved your wreath!
