DIY Wine Rack

11 Materials

This wine rack is easier than any other one I've seen on Pinterest. Sometimes I get intimidated by looking at building something like this but now that I did this and it turned out gorgeous - I'm going to stop being intimidated. This was super fun, quick and easy!

You will need a saw, measuring tape, pencil, wood glue, 12 copper elbows, 4 copper "tees" and 10 feet of 3/4" wooden dowel. The copper fixtures should be a size that can snuggly go over whatever wooden dowel size you choose.

Step 1: Cut wooden dowels into 6 five inch long pieces, 8 six inch long pieces and 4 nine inch long pieces.

For the sleeves where the wine is going to be held - I used leather shoe laces, hot glue and a staple gun.

Step 8: I then wrapped the leather around and secured it with hot glue.

Step 9: I added a staple to ensure the leather stayed in place - I repeated that until the last dowel.
