So this month we wanted to share a roundup of creative ways to recycle the bottles. Whether you are decorating or looking for creative gift ideas , try one of these simple DIY ideas – a few of which are great for the holidays

  1. Wine bottle candles: Dress up the table with a smattering of tea lights and bottle tops.
  2. Recycled wine bottle tiki torch: Add a touch of the tropics to your patio.
  3. Wine bottle tumblers: These drinking glasses from the base of the bottle make for a fun addition to the table – and a great gift idea.
  4. A festive light display: Bring the holidays into each room in your house with simple string lights and varied bottle colors.
  5. Wine bottle chalkboard menu: Using a bit of chalkboard paint, label cheese and appetizers at your next dinner party.
  6. Yarn wrapped wine bottles: Transform bottles into decorative vases by wrapping them in yarn or jute.
  7. Festive vases: Remove labels and add seasonal branches to give a festive update to any room, or use as a centerpiece.
  8. Wine bottle wall vase: A permanent hanging; change up the flowers to match the seasons.
  9. Wine bottle bird feeder: Take care of the feathered ones with a bird feeder no one else in the neighborhood has.
  10. Wine bottle watering: Heading out of town for a few days? Keep the plants watered while you're away (this one is especially inventive).
