A few wine craft ideas

Wine crafts have been growing in popularity in the last couple of years, due in large part to Pinterest. But it does make a lot of sense to make something useful out of wine bottles and corks that would otherwise be thrown away or recycled.

So, just in case you’re feeling crafty today and have a bunch of wine bottles or corks lying around…

Check out Wine Sisterhood’s ideas for crafts using wine bottles and wine corks. My favorite of theirs for wine bottles is cutting off the bottom of the bottle to make a candle cover.

Good news: you don’t even need a sharp instrument, just some nail polish.

Here’s some more examples for decorating inspiration once you have made the candle covers.

And from their five wine cork ideas, my favorite was using drawer pulls to create personalized wine stoppers.

A Lapin Life blog offers a more detailed set of instructions with pictures to help make this cork craft.

If you don’t like the idea of using drawer pulls for a cork topper, then use billard balls or other objects.

If you really have a lot of old corks and want to take on a bigger project, check out these 30 craft ideas. Alas, I don’t have that big of a cork supply.

I like the idea of making these garden markers for right now.

Guess I’ll have to try some more wines…or I buy some extra corks from Hobby Lobby, JoAnn’s or another local craft store.

The wine option appeals to me more, though.

Enjoy some wine today, and remember – keep those wine bottles and corks – they might come in handy one day!
