    By pushing them nose down into the ground they can edge a garden bed. Also, if you put the cork back in and drill a hole through it top to bottom the bottles can be filled with water and used to water house plants while you're on vacation, etc. I also like to wrap mine with yarn or jute and decorate them for specific holidays. If you own a bottle cutter they can be cut down and used as drinking glasses; etching them to make them prettier.

      U-tube has techniques for bottle cutting ; many uses cut: candle holder, utensil/pencil holder, short table vase to name a few. Cut bottom of bottle and use as candle globe to shield from outside air extinguishing flame. Paint bottles to use as window sill decoration for holidays.

    I put a wine bottle in a macrame hanger that I made out of twine and adorned it with faux grapes and morning glories.

    I made assorted olive oil, vinager, and Vanilla bottles that I keep handy near my stove. I put some nice pour spouts on them. The bottles are very thin green wine bottles that I had kept because "someday" I would use them for something. They were too nice a shape to throw away. I love them. They fit my hand very well. I also put a pretty rubber band around the bottom for a good grip.

    Make a bottle tree out of them. Wooden closet rod with pegs drilled in and glue. Hang bottles from then.

    After washing and drying, I just set them in my boots to keep the tops from bending over.

    You're so right, Loretta! Look on Pinterest and Etsy. The number of options is amazing. From lighting, furniture, walls, fences, etc.
    I really need to drink more wine... ;-)

    I have a friend who fills them with Christmas lights hangs dollar store grapes on the outside tied to the bottle with raffia and ties the cork on with raffia too-makes a pretty ornament for the table or mantle

    This is what I made from 4 empty wine bottles from Christmas. First I painted them with black chalk paint. I used elefant cording and white letters {you can get at a craft store} & with crochet hook I kept making chains & with glue gun, glued & wrapped around bottles. I had silk flowers & cut one for the O in the word LOVE. I put the corks back in, I didn't want vases either.

    Its great to hear all those ideas and it would be even better if the pictures were included. Great job everyone

    If you have a heavy bottomed wine bottle it's the perfect cooling base for bunt or angel food cakes. Just turn the pan upside down on the mouth of the bottle.

    If you like to have garden decor in your yard, try this. Turn your bottles upside down, stick into the ground along your flower beds as a border. Also try gluing a pretty saucer on the bottom of the bottle then stick into ground, for a birdfeeder. It can also serve as a place to put water for butterflies.

    I have taken some liquor bottles to a company that has a high temperature kiln. They can "flatten" them so they can be used as cheese trays, etc. They make great gifts after flattened. They charged me $20 per bottle. They can also be cut to create drinking glasses. Here's a few more ideas that may inspire you.
