Decorative Wine Bottles

Ever wonder what to do with your empty wine bottles other than cashing them in for your deposit?  Wine bottles have some of the best artwork out there on their labels!  And the glass color is amazing.  So why not display them??  But let's make them look even better!

All you need is a wine bottle, some beads, corks, copper wire, fake grapes and some ribbon.

First take your copper wire and stick the end into a cork.  Be sure not to straighten out the wire.  Leave that nice spiral.  It will look better when we attach it to the bottle.

Next wrap the wire once around the neck of the bottle, right in the middle of the wire.  Then pick out some beads and either attach them to the wire or just wrap them around the neck of the bottle.

Next are our grapes.  Use the wire as a place to attach them on the opposite side of the beads.

Last, tie a coordinating ribbon into a nice bow around the neck.  Use the bow to hide an plastic the beads or grapes may be attached to.  Tuck that plastic under the bow.  You can even add a candle in the bottle.

Now you have a nice centerpiece or decorative accent.  Decorate an unopened bottle to take as a hostess gift.  Or place a couple under your Christmas tree to have on hand for guests that may drop by you don't have a gift for.  They are great for "emergency" gifts!!
