Wine Bottle Upcycle?Does your recycle bin look like you might have a problem ? Do not feel alone. Our recycle bin looks the same way and we have decided to do something creative with it. After all we are Pinot’s Palette, we love our wine and paint. So we got our inspiration from our recycle bin and as a natural next step, we spent hours and hours browsing Pinterest and totally feeling thrilled about all the stuff we could do with those bottles. Sound familiar? Anyway, a little digital expedition and another bottle of wine later, we bring to you some of the most creative ideas we could find.
* BOTTLE CANVAS ANYONE?
Who says canvas has to be flat and stretched? Anything can be a canvas including a pretty wine bottle. All you need to do is think outside the bottle . Pick a pattern, or go abstract, wrap a ribbon around it in a fun way and spray paint. Anything that gives it a character and engages your creativity would be a win!
* FROST AN INSPIRATIONAL MESSAGE
Most major spray paint brands sell a “frost” variety. For words or initials, use letter stickers, simply arrange them the way you like, and use the frost spray paint to cover the rest of the bottle. For starters, how about frosting “Paint & Sip”?
* MESSAGE ON A BOTTLE
Chalkboard paint can transform almost anything and is available at every major retailer so just pick up a bottle and start spraying! Write or draw your own messages on the bottle, or let your guests do the honors. You can also glam it up by dipping the top or bottom of the bottle in glitter.
* WRAP IT
Burlap, twine, ribbon or felt – any one of these or other materials are great options for wrapping those bottles up and the wonderful thing about this idea is that you can get very seasonal with your décor. Spring flowers to Christmas décor, there is a million ideas like these on Pinterest so be sure to check out our Pinterest board as well.
* WINE BOTTLE PLANTERS
Clear off the label and clean out the inside of bottle. There are some real easy ways to cut the narrow end of the bottle and place it upside down in the larger base, add rocks or sand to bottle before you add the water. Safety first, be sure to search the best way to cut a wine bottle and take all necessary precautions before you attempt to cut the bottle. Place a small piece of window screen/muslin cloth inside the top part of the bottle and pass a small cotton wick or string through the screen. Make sure it's long enough to touch the larger base (as pictured above) which will contain water. Now place some soil and plant your favorite herb/plant. For the added elegance, you can use chalkboard paint to dress up your planters and write the names of herbs.
