Crafting with Wine Bottles
Tissue Wine Bottle Vases
By: Sara Rivka for Creative Jewish Mom
Turn old wine bottles into decorative vases using pretty patterned
tissue paper. All you have to do to make this wine bottle craft is
decoupage!
Materials:




Recycled wine and liquor bottles, spray painted with a primer,
and then white
Printed/stamped tissue paper
Mod Podge or a mixture of white glue and water
A brush to apply the Mod Podge
Instructions:
1. You can choose to cover the entire bottle with tissue paper, as we did with the polka dotted
versions, or cut pieces of tissue paper and decoupage that as I did with the large circles. Either
way, brush some Mod Podge or glue onto your bottle and carefully place the tissue paper on
top, gently smoothing with the brush. It you want a very smooth surface I would recommend
working with fairly small pieces, as tissue paper is difficult to work with because it's so thin.
2. Set aside to dry and apply an additional coat of Mod Podge as a protective layer.
3. And by the way, if you don't feel like going through the trouble of painting the bottles, you
can of course decoupage the tissue paper onto clear bottles.

Wine Bottle Topiary
By: Rita Schwab for Diamond Tech
This Wine Bottle Topiary is a great way to use up an empty wine
bottle. Wine bottle craft projects make great conversation pieces,
and this one is no exception! Use it as your centerpiece for your next
wine tasting or dinner party!
Materials:



Generation Green (g2)
2 Wine Bottle – 750 ML
Mod Podge
Paint Brush
Studio Pro ¼” Copper Foil
Pencil or Fid
Two Part Epoxy or Glass Glue
Wine labels or a 3.5 image
Instructions:
1. Read and carefully follow the instructions contained within the Generation Green (g2) bottle
cutter manual.
2. Cover the work area with craft or newspaper.
3. Measure 4.75” up from the bottom of each wine bottle and mark with a Sharpie.
4. Using the bottle cutter, score and separate where indicated.
5. Smooth the rough edges as instructed in the bottle cutter manual.
6. Clean the cut edges of the bottle thoroughly with a vinegar/water solution and clean cloth.
Foil will not stick properly if your glass is dirty or oily.
7. For this project, only foil the cut edges of two bottoms and one top. Start with ¼” (1.5ml thick)
copper foil. Peel back 3”- 4” of backing from the foil. Center the edge of your glass on the
sticky side of the foil. Always “start” your foil on the backside of the project. Wrap the entire
cut edge with foil and overlap the ends ¼”. Use a scissors and clip the curved edges around
the lip of the glass.

8. Press the foil down a little bit at a time to prevent bunching. Use a fid (if you don’t have a fid,
a pencil or Popsicle stick can be substituted) and burnish (rub) the surface of the foil to the
edge of the glass. Press firmly, however too much pressure may cause the foil to tear.
9. To create the pedestal vase, place the bottom of the wine bottle with the opening facing
down on the table. Place a large dollop of glass glue in the middle of bottom and insert the
top, neck first into the glue. Hold in place until the glue sets up. (TIP: Place a small level on the
top of the glass to make sure the vase sits straight.) Allow to dry overnight. Periodically check
the level to insure your pedestal dries straight. Should it start to tilt, simply move it back into

place and hold for a minute for the glue to set-up.
10. Next, either use your favorite wine label or print one from the Internet. Labels should be at
least 3.50” tall.
11. To prevent the bottle from rolling while you decoupage, place it on an old pillow or a Ziploc
bag filled with rice.
12. Apply the wine label to the bottom portion of the small vase and the top portion of the
pedestal vase, using the decoupage medium. Once dry, apply several coats to the surface of
the wine label, allowing each layer to dry before applying the next.
13. Allow to dry thoroughly before using.
14. You are now ready to tuck your favorite bouquet into each or insert a pillar candle to create a
couple flickering two beauties.

Illuminated Wine Bottle
By: Stephanie Jennings for KiKi Love Creations
Create a lovely ambiance with this Illuminated Wine Bottle
project. Wine bottle craft ideas like this are great for centerpieces or
adding a soft light to a bathroom or bedroom. Use different colored
stones for a neat lighting effect. This is a clever and fun way to put
those old wine bottles to use instead of letting them collect in the
trash bin.
Materials:




Empty glass bottle with a pre-drilled hole
Small strand of Christmas lights
100-150 colored stones
Hot glue gun and glue sticks
Instructions:
1. So the first thing I did was take a small handful of my smallest stones and glued them around
the top most part of the outside of the bottle. This will give you a nice even flow into the rest
of your bottle. From there I would test a few stones to make sure they would fit in properly
and then I would glue them into place. I did this all the way down the bottle. I laid the red
stones out sporadically and then placed 3 different sizes of clear stones to break up the flow
and give it a bit of visual texture.
2. When gluing the stones down make sure that there are no air spot between where the stones
touch the glass. Although try not to let to much squeeze out the sides either. If you do I found
it best to take a toothpick or a paperclip and clear that away. This will give you a nice, clean
finished appearance.
3. When you reach the bottom make sure you are testing each stone to make sure it fits
properly and to not over extend the bottom of the bottle. I made sure that my stones were
about 1/16th of an inch above the bottom brim line , by doing so you will ensure that the
bottle will stand flat on the table or counter. Also when you are placing the lights around the
back by the hole make sure you don't overlap the hole, otherwise you might not be able to get
the lights in the bottle.

25 Cool Things to Do with Wine Bottles
4. After all your stones are in place you can then put your lights in
through the bottom hole. Set the bottle on your counter plug it in and
the lights will bounce through the stones projecting parts of the shapes
and colors anywhere near it.
Faux Dichroic Glass Recycled Bottle
By: Michelle Zimmerman
This is a fun effect and it’s fairly easy to achieve. The Envirotex Lite gives the
bottle a wonderful glossy seal. For best results, follow the two step mixing
process and don’t scrape the first container however tempted you are to do
so! The product must be mixed thoroughly so it sets to a hard finish, if you
don’t mix it well and if you scrape the sides of the container, you risk it
remaining slightly tacky instead of glass like.
Materials:
















Pasta machine or clay roller
Tissue blade
Large discarded plastic bucket or container
Discarded plastic container to stand the bottle on
For mixing Envirotex Lite: 2 disposable mixing cups, 2 wooden popsicle sticks, gloves
Disposable paintbrush
Curing oven
Recycled wine bottle
Bottle pourer (available from www.fantes.com/stoppers.htm)
12 oz black Fimo Soft polymer clay
2' x 8" Mylar backed foil – Oil Slick color (from www.coveredinclay.com/foil.htm)
Jacquard Piñata ink – Santa Fe Red and Sunburst Yellow
Lumiere paints in Metallic Olive, Pearl Blue, Pearl Violet
Envirotex Lite
Houston art foil – variegated leafing flakes
PearlEx powder - Brilliant Gold
Instructions:
1. Condition clay. Roll sheets of clay at #1 (thick) setting approximately 3/8 inch thick. Use clay
pieces to cover bottle – trimming away excess clay with a tissue blade and sealing joints to get
an even coverage. Cover bottle to within ½ in of opening (polymer clay should not come in
contact with surfaces which touch food). Remove any air bubbles by slicing into the air bubble

with a tissue blade or craft knife held at a 45 degree angle, press out the air and reseal the
clay. It’s essential you get a good even coverage.
2. Apply the Mylar backed foil to the clay decorative side facing up. Rub the foil lightly but firmly
with your hand repeatedly to warm the foil and then lift the plastic leaving the foil behind –
foil adheres to clay with heat and friction. Continue and apply foil all over the bottle. Aim for
just less than 100% coverage – small areas of black clay are desirable.
3. Using Lumiere paints and a small paintbrush, paint random long brushstrokes across the
bottle. Cross the colors over each other – you’re aiming to give the project more dimension
and color.
4. Using the Piñata inks, dip a brush into the inks and touch the brush to the surface of the bottle
to make small dots. The inks spread on the clay so a little ink goes a long way.
5. Place the bottle into a cold oven preferably standing upright. Heat the oven to the required
temperature with the bottle in it and then cure for the amount of time and at the
temperature recommended by the manufacturer. Allow the bottle to cool in the oven before
removing it.
6. Mix the Envirotex Lite according to manufacturer’s instructions. It works best if you pour both
parts into one container and stir to mix. Pour the mix into a second container – do not scrape
the excess off the sides of the first container when you do so. Continue to mix in the second
container using a fresh stirring stick.
7. Stand the cured bottle on top of an upturned discarded container in the large bucket. It works
best if the bottle is standing on a container slightly smaller than the bottom rim of the bottle.
As the excess Envirotex Lite won’t be able to be removed from the containers, use containers
you don’t mind damaging.
8. Add approximately 2 tablespoons of the variegated foil pieces and 1/8 teaspoon of gold
PearlEx powder to the Envirotex Lite and mix in.
9. Place an old cork into the wine bottle to seal it. Working over the bucket, pour the Envirotex
Lite over the surface of the bottle and work it in so it covers the surface of the bottle. This is
best done with a disposable paint brush or a gloved hand. You must completely cover the
bottle with the Envirotex Lite.
10. When the bottle is covered, stand it on the upside-down container in the bucket, remove the
cork and leave it until set. Perching it on a container ensures that excess Envirotex Lite runs
off the bottom of the bottle and won’t adhere to it.

11. When dry, remove the bottle from the bucket and remove the plastic container from the
bottom of the bottle. If you need to smooth the bottom of the bottle, sand the excess set
Envirotex Lite with coarse sandpaper. Insert the bottle pourer cork.

4. Smooth the rough edges as instructed in the bottle cutter manual.
5. Clean the cut edges of the bottle thoroughly with a vinegar/water solution and clean cloth.
Foil will not stick properly if your glass is dirty or oily.
6. Start with ¼” (1.5ml thick) copper foil; peel back 3”- 4” of backing from the foil. Place the foil
1/8” from the edge of the rim. Wrap the entire perimeter with foil and overlap the ends ¼”.
Snip the foil at the curves to allow the foil to lie flat against the glass.
7. Use a fid (if you don’t have a fid, a pencil or craft stick can be substituted) and burnish (rub)
the surface of the foil to the edge of the glass. Press firmly, but not hard as too much pressure
may cause the foil to tear.

8. Once burnished into place. Peel back another 3”- 4” of backing from the foil. Place it along the
perimeter of the glass, at the edge of the rim. Wrap the entire perimeter of the glass with foil
and overlap the ends ¼”. Continue this process for all three glass votives.
9. “Tin” the copper foil with solder. To do so, apply flux using a flux brush to the copper foil. Turn
on your soldering iron and allow to heat. When soldering an object that is round, place it on
its side on an old hand towel so that the towel is away from the area being soldered but will
keep the object from rolling.
10. Melt a small amount of solder – just enough to lightly cover the surface area of the foil.
Remember, you are only applying a thin layer of solder to the foil.
11. Continue this process on all votives. Set aside to cool. While cooling, string beads onto the
head pins.

12. Use needle-nose pliers to create an eye loop at the top. Nip off any extra wire.
13. To make the silver decoration, hold pliers at the end of the wire and bend into a spiral. Do the
same on the opposite end of the wire, bending the spiral in the opposite direction. Slip a
beaded head pin onto each end.
14. Place the silver spiral on the glass and melt a tiny drop of solder onto the side or end of the
coil where it touches the soldering edges of the glass. You may need just a dab of flux. Repeat
with the remaining two spirals evenly spacing them around the edge of the glass. Clean
thoroughly with soapy sponge and water. Insert a scented votive in each and enjoy the sweet
glow.

Hemp Wrapped Wine Bottle
By: Jane Bernard for Finding Fabulous
This hemp wrapped wine bottle is one of the coolest, easiest
things to make with wine bottles. Recycle your empty bottles into
stylish home decor using little more than glue and hemp cording.
Materials:



Large wine bottle
Hemp rope
Elmers glue
Instructions:
1. I started this project with tacky glue, but quickly realized that good ole' Elmer's glue works
better. It doesn't set up as quick and gives you more time to make any adjustments to your
rope. I started the rope at the bottom of the bottle and glued every other time I wrapped the
rope around the bottle.
2. The bottom section of the bottle is where I used the most glue. The middle I used much less.
And the top where the bottle gets smaller I used more glue again to keep the rope from
gaping and showing the bottle underneath.

1. With a drill bit, that is large enough to make a hole to fit a chain through it, twist by hand a
hole about a 1/4 inch through the center top of the cork. The cork is easy to drill through so
you don’t have to use a drill but can if you want to.
2. Drill a hole through the side about 1/8 inch down from the top the same way you did your first
hole. Drill through until you can see the tip of the drill bit coming through from the top of the
center hole – it should be half way through the cork.

3. Now start pushing your chain through the side hole. Use a darning needle and a tweezers to
pull the chain through the top hole and continue feeding through. Clasp the chain together.
4. Coat the top and the upper side of the cork, especially at the drilled holes, with rubber
cement. This will give it some extra strength where the chain is pulled through and keep the
holes from flaking.
5. With a smaller drill bit, drill a hole completely through the bottom of the cork as shown. This
is where your beading wire will be inserted.
6. Cut a piece of beading wire about six inches long and insert it through your hole.
7. Criss-cross the wires through your charm and then pull the wires tight so that your charm is
against the cork. Now twist the two wires together a couple of times and bring them around
and under the side of the charm holder. You will need to use your flat nose pliers to get this
nice and tight.
8. Now loop the wires around the opposite side and bring them back to where you started.
Crimp them tight with your pliers. Snip the access ends off with your wire snips and bend in
place with pliers.
9. Sting your desired beads on to your elastic and time them on to your charm holder. Place a
dot of rubber cement over your knots to keep them secure.
10. Second Technique: The second technique requires purchasing just a couple of extra parts but
it provides a nice look. Attach a round beading attachment to each eye pin. Cut the eye pin to
about a one inch length with your wire snips. Apply glue to the pin and insert one into each
end of the cork. You now have a ring on each end to attach your chain and your string of
beads. I used one of the key chains, that I made, just to display one of my vintage keys in a
fun way.
11. I originally tried inserting my beading wire, wrapping around a charm, and then stringing
those ends with beads and twisting the wire at the ends to hold the beads in place. This was a
stiffer look – almost like legs on a cork, which I didn’t care for. But, if you wanted to make a
person key chain and add wire arms and a head as well, it would be cute.

Wine Cork Board
By: Becky Kazana
Do you keep all your old wine corks? You should! Learn
how to turn old wine corks into a fabulous, rusticlooking cork board. If you love the look of this board,
but don't drink much wine, you can pick up corks from
ebay and other sources.
Materials:




Wine corks
Bulletin board
Glue gun
Serrated Knife
Instructions:
1. Making a bulletin board with wine corks is quite simple. You'll need large collection of corks, a
bulletin board and your trusty hot glue gun. (My wonderful husband uses a serrated knife to
cut these in half so I only need half as many. Be warned- it's a recipe for sliced fingers. You can
also find lots of them on ebay if you're impatient!)
2. I recommend laying out your pattern before gluing it down. I like to do a parquet pattern to
make them look more interesting and less messy.

random sized pieces; Red – one each –pattern pieces: #1, #2, #3 & #4
2. Clean glass using paper towel moistened with water. Completely dry the surface of the glass
with a lint free cloth.
3. Circles can be scored freehand or with a circle cutter. First, score the circle, making sure that
you start and stop the score line at the same point.

47
25 Cool Things to Do with Wine Bottles
4. Turn the glass over onto a piece of corrugated cardboard with the score line face down. With
your fingers, press along the score line until you see the score line "runs" completely around
the circle.
5. Turn the glass over to the side on which you scored. Score several tangent cuts off the circle,
see diagram.
6. Break these tangential scores with your hands or pliers. The circle should break out clean with
no rough or jagged edges.
7. Next, cut a 2” X 2” piece of kiln paper. Remove the lid from the Fuseworks™ Kiln. Place the kiln
paper on the kiln base.
8. Layer the glass on the kiln paper. Start with the clear dichroic 1 1/4” circle, dichroic side down.
Next, configure the heart by centering glass piece #3 & #4 side-by-side (Diagram 1) on top of
the circle. Stack glass pieces #1 & #2 on top of #3 & #4 and position randomly shaped dichroic
bits one on each side of the heart globs.
9. Carefully set the kiln base inside the microwave. Cover base and glass with kiln lid.
10. Fuse in a 1200 WATT microwave at full (100%) power for 2 minutes PLEASE NOTE: All
microwave and kiln combinations will have different firing patterns. Be sure to take careful
notes and log all fusing times for future use. For microwaves with less wattage increase the
fusing times no more than a minute for the first fuse.
11. After time has expired, open microwave and using Hot Mitts; carefully lift the lid enough to
inspect the fusing process. Glass edges should appear nicely rounded. If not, continue fusing
by adding 15 second increments to the time until desired results are achieved. Remove kiln
from microwave using the Hot Mitts and place on a heat resistant surface. Cool the kiln for 3045 minutes with the lid on. PLEASE NOTE: Removing the lid or peeking under the lid during the
cooling will result in your piece cracking. Glass remains hot for a long time and should be
handled with great caution.
12. Cut one 4 ½” lengths of purple, copper and red wire. Working with one section at a time, run
one end of the wire through a seed bead. Use needle nose pliers to wrap 1/4 inch of the wire
around the bead so the wires meet at the base, twist wires together to secure. Repeat these
steps for each length of wire.

13. Next, slide a faceted (or V-cut) bead to the end of the wire until it rests against the seed bead.
To prevent the bead from sliding off, coil the wire closest to the bead around a tooth pick
about ¼”.

49
25 Cool Things to Do with Wine Bottles
14. Remove toothpick to reveal a small curl in the wire. Repeat this step on all three wires.
15. Reverse this process for the opposite ends of two of the wire lengths, leaving the center of the
wires straight. Start by curling the wire, sliding faceted bead and seed bead onto the end,
wrap and twisting to secure in place. Bend each of the wire in half to find their centers. Using
the wire with a single set of beads at the end, wrap the end without beads around the centers
of the other wires to secure together, nip off any extra wire. Spread the wires apart at equal
distances similar to a star design.
16. When the fused heart medallion is cool, put a drop of E6000® glue in the center of the
rounded bottle stopper head. Center the wire star on the surface of the stopper so that the
wires are embedded in the glue. Place the fused heart medallion on top of the wire and press.
Allow to dry according to the manufacturer’s instructions on a level surface.
