Coastal Wine Bottle Upcycle

53K Views
Make a coastal decor piece using upcycled items. An empty wine bottle that I've been hanging onto for months was the perfect item for this easy coastal decor piece.

I'm not sure when I bought this bottle of wine and I don't recall if I even liked it, but I loved the bottle. I stored it away, thinking I would do something with it

I filled the sink with sudsy warm water and left the bottle to sit in it for about thirty minutes. The labels came off easily and the sticky residue came off. The dots on this bottle are a perfect match for a guest room that I'm in the process of giving a makeover to.

One of the items I bought for the makeover was a bag full of shells and vase filler. The packaging was this rope bag. When I cut the top of it to remove the shells, I saw how much the shape of it looked like a bottle. That's when I knew what I could do with the wine bottle.

With the bottle inside of the bag, I pulled it tautly around the bottle and pinched it together at the bottom of the neck. Then, I tied it off with a piece of twine.

I poked the excess rope into the bottle and added a couple of dots of hot glue to keep it there.

Using rope, I wound it around the neck. It's held it place with a dot of hot glue at both ends.

This raffia bow was attached to the packaging of two pillar candles. It's stiff and has been painted a little.

It's hot glued to the bottle, just beneath the rope.

I had a package of glass sea shell vase fillers that I bought for another project. I hot glued one of them to the top of the bottle.

That's it! This was one of the easiest DIY projects I've done. It's a great way to upcycle a pretty bottle. I was pleased that the rope packaging and raffia bow could be used for something, too.

    😉gave me some ideas of all the netting I have around the house👌🏼

  • Carolyn Noyer

    I thought you were pretty lucky to end up with the netting, I'm happy to see someone else said it can be purchased at craft stores. I'm sure I'll be stealing your idea here

    I was just on the verge of sending many old wine/drink bottles to the recyclers. I just couldn't quite bring myself to do it..... and then I saw this lovely article. I am 79 1/2 and have decided (really the dr decided for me, ha!) that some of my
