Filled with twinkle lights, wine bottles can be cheery accent lighting for your holiday decor. Just think about how clever these bottles would look suspended as a chandelier (above) or grouped on a home bar or pub (below) during the Christmas season. The 'How To' can be found at Instructables.

Maybe I could make a dozen or so wine bottle vases like the one below for friends. A bit of glue, a few dots and some paint is all it takes. Viola! Lovely modern vase.

A bit less refined, but equally artsy and fun, are simply painted wine bottles with personalized details.

This is a super simple project that anyone could master. Paint a wine bottle with a layer of gesso. Dry, then, stencil a personalized design or number (as shown above). This is giving me zillions of ideas! The tags here are pricetags, but wouldn't a heartfelt note on a tag be simply divine!?!

If you've been reading this blog for any length of time, you know I'm a fan of blackboard paint. And, I have to say, I'm really fond of this wine bottle reuse idea. Painted with blackboard paint, I could create any kind of design with chalk or a chalk marker (Chalk Ink), available at most craft stores. Make a birthday card, create an invitation, use it instead of place cards on a table ... the possibilities are endless.
