empty wine bottles???

I'm going out on a limb guessing that some of you might have empty wine bottles,
if not maybe a neighbor has a few! :)

Just simple ideas for something you have at home,
 and they look great with only a stem or two. 

Organic and easy.
Corralled as a centerpiece.
Even one hydrangea makes me happy!
Rustic perfection!
Simply sweet.
Maybe monochromatic?

Go grab yours out of the recycle bin!

Oh no! I'm all out of empties, I better get drinking!
It just goes to show how something so 'everyday' can be used to add beauty to our homes. I like the ones corralled.

Love this idea, I've seen it but have never done it. Thanks for the reminder.

I love this idea and that the bottles are of a few different colors. I am hosting a neighborhood ladies coffee (really an evening of drinking wine) and will hold on to some of the "better looking" bottles. Love the effect of a single stem in each bottle.

I love using bottles as vases! No need to store a bunch of vases AND you can just toss a bottle if you get tired of it or if it's in the way!

I may have one or two lying around here somewhere! Such cute ideas!

Such a great idea!! Never have enough vases...wine bottles, no problem!

Love these ideas and might just be able to find a bottle or two....! This made me think of this pendant light I recently saw: http://www.lightinguniverse.com/mini-pendants/meyda-tiffany-custom-wine-bottle-mini-pendant_g391929.html

I've tossed enough into the recycle bin to make the recyclers think I might have a problem. I might need to rescue a few. Love these ideas! Thanks for sharing.

So pretty and simple. I've got to start drinking more! Love the rustic ones.

such a great excuse to drink more wine. ;)

Leslie said...

Lol! I may have a few around... Have you seen those candles (they look like corks) that you can put in your empty wine bottle? They are really pretty on the table!


Jennifer @ Dimples and Tangles said...

So pretty! I save our sparkling grape juice bottles. :)

I wish I had some pretty bottles like that in my trash. I guess I'm going to have to head on over to my neighbors trash or start dumpster diving. Please don't make me do that! I just love this idea. I may use milk bottles from my parents dairy instead.

Will have to remember this too! We keep the corks but never the bottles - they always end up in the recycling bin.

I will have to go drink more wine to try these ideas! :) Great summer ideas!! I have also seen empty wine bottles with the bottom half wrapped with twine, for a rustic look. So many cool ideas to try! Thanks for these inspiration images.

Boy, there sure are a bunch of winos in the blogland! Just kidding...hoping I'm your last comment on this post and nobody will ready that. ha! I'm all over the 'rustic perfection' shot...so pretty.

Unknown said...

perfect timing. my neighboors and I just finished off a few of my "almost empty" bottles. I'll have to pick up a few flowers tomorrow, and throw something together. you never cease to inspire me!

Maureen Stevens said...

great post... I'm into collecting all sorts of bottles now, including Orangina bottles, the shape is just gorgeous & so many possibilities!

Michele said...

Great idea with the bricks and bottles, I also enjoy finds at garage sales and craigs list.


KISSES, and may the Lord Jesus Christ bless you!!!!
