Wine bottles are a familiar item around many households around the world, it is a favorite drink for many women and men. The majority of bottles though get either thrown away of recycled to make more bottles. But you yourself can recycle them to make wine bottle crafts.
Wine bottles can be used as very decorative items all around the house and garden, all you need is a a good imagination and a love for crafts. The thing about wine bottles is that they are a very durable material and they already come in some beautiful colors. There are so many different things you can make, from lamp shades, to garden candle holders. It really just depends on how far you let your imagination go.
It is not just the bottle you can create crafts from, did you know you can create cool stuff using the cork? Corks have a weird but very strong texture, its like a woody texture but is compressed so much that it doesn’t loose it shape when bending, it just bends back into place. Get enough corks and you can make a bulletin board.
Depending on the level of the craft you are going to try, you may need specialist tools to create your ornament.
