How to Repurpose Your Wine Bottles as DIY Vases

Wine lovers and craft connoisseurs, this one’s for you.

Instead of tossing out your empty wine bottles, exercise your artsy side and turn them into elegant vases to show off small bouquets, single buds or dried plants. The smooth, strong glass and tall, elegant silhouette make them easy to incorporate into any decor. Next time you open up some Sutter Home wine, save the bottles and try these three simple-yet-stunning DIY ideas.

Pretty in Paint

Depending on the colors you choose, this project can range from simple and sophisticated to bright and statement-making. Plunge your bottle in a bucket of paint or partially dip it for a color-block effect.

Modern Minimalist

Not so creatively inclined? This one is ultra easy! Just remove the label, add a few colorful blooms and voila—instant centerpiece.
Tip: Soak the bottle in warm, soapy water to easily remove the label.

Time for Twine

For a rustic look, wrap your bottle in thin-gauge twine. Cover the entire surface, or just wrap a few sections. Use hot glue to hold in place as you go.
