If you are a wine lover, it is possible that more than once you have wondered what to do with all your wine bottles that are accumulated for recycling and that you are sorry to throw away. One of the things that crafts allow us is to use and recycle objects that we already have in our home and transform them.
So, instead of throwing away all these bottles, isn’t it better to try to be a little more productive and find a new purpose for your empty bottles? In this post we are going to give you 4 great ideas to recycle your wine bottles in a homemade way and give them a new use.
4 ways to recycle your wine bottles
Vases, especially glass, can be really expensive and fragile. Thus, instead of spending money on acquiring new containers to deposit bouquets and other ornaments, you can use the empty wine bottles that you have at home. Perhaps it is the most classic way to recycle glass bottles … but even so, it still has its grace if you know how to do it well.
2. Terrariums & Pots
Continuing with the flowers and plants, you can also reuse the wine bottles as pots or terrariums. Inside your house, many times having a plastic container to grow your plants is not very glamorous or decorative. A possible solution is to fill a bottle with stones and sand, then introduce some seeds or small flowers to grow them directly inside the bottle.
3. Lamps & Candle Holders
Another creative way to recycle glass bottles is to use them as candle holders to light up your summer nights on the terrace. You can also use them as lamps or even decorate them with garlands of lights of different colors and get a special touch for any corner, inside or outside the house.
4. Decorate your house with your wine bottles
If you are an artistic person, art and painting lover, consider using your skills to make better use of bottles. You can use the bottles as canvas and paint them in different themes: with attractive colors, flowers, stars … or you can even wrap them with raffia thread to get a more special decoration.
