DIY wine bottle vases with colored twine

I love having a drop or two of wine, a beer or perhaps a nice cocktail while preparing dinner. Heck, who doesn’t? Sometimes the bottles have such a nice shape that it seems such a shame to just throw them out in the recycling. Or perhaps you drank a bottle of champagne to celebrate a special occasion and you would like to keep the bottle as a souvenir to remember the day by?

But then you get to the point where you have a cupboard full of empty glass bottles taking up space. So, rather than letting them collect dust, why not turn them into something more useful, such as vases?

Glass and wine generally rank relatively high on the “cool and sophisticated” scale, but I decided to give my bottles a more rustic, yet colorful, look by wrapping them up in colored twine!

(This is the same twine that I used for my colorful driftwood necklace hanger tutorial, too.)

You can use one solid color for each bottle or combine colors. I made a few sets of three bottles to take advantage of the different colors of twine I had.

You can put flowers and water in these bottle vases. Or if you, like I, dislike cut flowers that will wilt in a few days, cut some dried wild grasses that will not only last for years, but also work perfectly with the rustic look of the twine!

This is really such an easy project, requiring just bottles, twine and craft glue. You don’t really have to pay a lot of attention to what you’re doing, so they’re also a good project to do while watching TV, chatting with friends, or supervising your kids while they do their homework!

These also make a great gift, just like the chalk board and spray paint personalized bottle vases that I wrote about a few months ago. Who wouldn’t be happy to receive these, with some flowers or grasses in them, as a housewarming gift?

It's such a clichè, but it's also totally true: how fast kids grow! And that of course means that they grow out of their clothes so quickly. But what a shame to get rid of clothes that still fit them in the waist. And that's why every spring I go through their wardrobe and turn all their too-short pants or pants with holes in the knees (anyone … Read more

This was the view outside the balcony where I spent four nights a couple of weeks ago. Pretty, right? The bay of Naples, Mount Vesuvius, the classic Mediterranean pine tree. Except I didn't really get to enjoy it very much because I spent most of the time laying in my hospital bed. Yep. You may or may not have noticed that I had dropped off the … Read more
