Any ideas on how I can upcycle this bottle holder for outside decor?

I would like to do something with this metal wine holder to keep in my backyard. My house overlooks vineyards and would love to do something with it to be placed on counter or flower beds.

    I have pretty much the same thing. Get some blue bottles and place in the holes as if your were storing wine. Place in the garden and your done.

    Place a plastic container in the bottom, cover outside of container with Spanish moss, and plant grape vines inside container. As the vines grow weave them through the wine rack, place wine rack on bishop hook and place in area to admire.

    Maybe you could place small pots in the wine holders and fill with succulents. Just a thought.....

    It would be cool if you could make it into a lighing fixture or even put some tall pillar candles (real or battery or solar) inside for use at night.

    Thread battery operated lights into empty wine bottles and plant a vine growing annual beneath it like morning glories or ivy. Another idea is to turn it into a fairy apartment. Line the bottle holders with moss and decorate with other natural fairy accessories.

    What a beautiful find!Im on the hunt for something like that myself,...plant clematis and let it climb! How beautiful that would be!

  • Linda Linda on May 22, 2016
    I'd rest it on its side and put small plant pots in the holes for the wine. Those could be planted with fake flowers, or real ones, or even herbs.

  • Monica Monica on May 22, 2016
    Hang it on a wall.

    How about adding pots of plants tipped on their side and grow climbing or trailing plants in them. Paint pots different colours.

    I have one like this and do not know what to do with it so I look forward to all the ideas you guys come up with.

  • Trish F Trish F on May 22, 2016
    I would just use it a decorative piece all on its own. Let it patina naturally with the weather and just stand it in a corner or your garden. If you really want to do 'something' with it again put it in the corner and plant a vine inside and train the tendrils to grow up and around the metal.

    I would get clear Christmas bulbs or even colored to save a step, if clear I'd drizzle glass paint in preferred color and swirl around . Let dry and plug into holes on rack . Set in a sunny spot. Voila stained glass yard art.

    Simplest thing would be to add wine bottles (blue is my favorite) and place it in a flower bed to add that sparkle. I added mine to stacked flower pots.

  • Jeannie Jeannie on May 22, 2016
    What about opening one side up (a little) and adding a couple of shelves? BUT, if it were me, I would just display it as is. It is beautiful!

  • Carol adams Carol adams on May 22, 2016
    why not put terracotta pots in where the bottles should go and plant vertically, much like they do with pallettes ? flowering vines would be lovely or anything:)

    Melt plastic beads in circles slightly smaller than each hole and hang in wine bottle holes for a kalidiscope (can't spell) effect.

    I would add some color with a bit of paint, and then a good sealer,. I would then fill with succulents and display by hanging on a fence, wall, etc,.

  • Laura G Laura G on May 23, 2016
    I like the succulent idea--but I have a smaller version of a similar rack, and I use it to hold hand held gardening tools.

  • Mary boudreaux Mary boudreaux on May 23, 2016

  • Josie Josie on May 24, 2016
    I think it is a pretty piece. If it were mine I think i would find a way to insert photos in the circles and use it for a picture display. family maybe? or plates.

  • Cindy Cindy on May 24, 2016
    it would be really cute if u cut plastic bottles in different lengths so they stick out at the sides but cut the top part of the bottle shorter and put bird seed in them

    Its very nice as it is Imo . But you could lay it on its side on a tray then put some paper towels in the top hole to wipe up spills on the picknick table .Then in the other holes you can add serving spoons and other utensils for serving .In some of the other holes add you eating utensils such as spoons forks knives . add some napkins and maybe even some katsup mustard and mayo in the long squirt bottles .

    You know have a nice serving caddy for those outings with friends & family that you can turn in to something else once again .
