Take it on Tuesday #29: Wine Bottle Luminaries

posted in: Simply Home | 31

Wine Bottle Luminaries

As we’ve been going through our house and decluttering, we found that we had MANY wine bottles we have collected. My husband suggested we put them to use in our decor as luminaries!

This was really easy to do, once we had the right tools. All we needed were:

– protective glasses & masks
– drill
– glass drill bit $15 from Home Depot

I helped to hold the wine bottles in place, while my husband drilled the hole:

This took some time, but once we had the holes drilled, it was easy to put a string of lights in and voila!

I love how it looks in our corner table in the living room:

We’ve gotten a lot of compliments on how they look!

    The wine bottle decor is so much fun! I love saving and using wine bottles! Usually I paint them though, these are so fun though! Def. a new mantle decor idea for the future!

      Yes, there are so many ways to use wine bottle in decor. We have many more wine bottles, so we might have to make more. Our piano might need a few. 🙂

      Oh, and I did stop by at the Natually Nifty party – thanks!
