Reduce, Reuse, Recycle: Wine Bottles

Wednesday, April 21, 2010

Merlot, Shiraz or Chianti - they're all good to me; especially when enjoyed with good friends over a good meal. So why let the good times stop there? Wine bottles are doing double duty these days. You know it's a big trend when Pottery Barn is doing it. Wait, does that mean the trend is almost on it's way out? No mind. I don't really follow trends anyway. Wine bottles are being "upcycled" into great chandeliers, candle holders, vases and more...

Amazing stuff right? I would have never imagined, in a million years, that so many things could be done with a simple wine bottle. Oh, I also read a few posts mentioning wine bottles as rolling pins. You just fill them with small glass rocks or beads and then put them in the freezer I think. Crazy, but it sounds like it would work. What do I know... I don't bake unless I've got Betty Crocker by my side! xo


  1. Love the painted bottles...and that little crochet one is so gorgeous!

  2. I've also seen a vintage wine bottle (a nice round one) turned into a table lamp, looks really amazing.
    Great post as always ans appropriate given that as I read this it is Earth Day here in Sydney.

  3. Oh! Thanks for including my painted bottles.

    I really like the wine bottles fixed to the wall. Clever!

    I wonder how the rolling pins would turn out. I have images of the beads making a sound as they roll. Music as you bake. Haha.. I'm sure that's not the intention though.
