I've got some blue glass wine bottles and a clear bacardi gold bottle. What should I do with them?  Huh

You could do something similar to this.

Or you could use a little etching cream, etch some interesting designs on 'em and make them into vases.

Quite a few people use wine bottles as makeshift rolling pins.

I'll see if I can come up with a few more ideas later, when I've had some sleep and can think properly.

Hi,
I had the same "problem". I live in Italy and my whole kitchen is in wine/grape theme. Well, I found on ebay (no craftstores in Italy) some tops you put on the wine bottle after you filled them with oil = instant oil lamp, to cute. You can also buy some light fixture, glue it to a wine cork, get a nice lamp shade, presto, nice wine bottle lamp. Hope that helped. When I am done with mine, I will send some pics.

I've been saving some wine bottles to create genie bottles!  I look for the bottles with a pear shape and long neck (like Chianti).  Some liquor bottles might work, too.
Once I work the labels off, I'd like to glue glass beads of various size and color into a swirling pattern.  Then create a stopper out of the cork, using more beads.
I just checked the THIS TO THAT website and they recommend Loctite Impruv, found at elctronics stores.  alternative glue is Houshold goop.
So, the question is---how can I make this look more like a genie bottle and less like a pretty bottle with some beads on it?

Soak off the labels off the bottles and clean them really well.  Fill them with olive oil and add some garlic cloves, a few dried hot peppers, rosemary, or any combination of flavorings.  Put the cork back in it and let it seep for a few weeks and you have wonderful flavored oils that you can use for cooking, grilling etc.  You can also make flavored vinegars this way.  If you put a fancy little label on them you could give them out as gifts.

I saw this idea for a cool table in a book I have. I can post directions if you want, or you could adapt it to your own requirements. Sorry about the shiny pic - I don't have a scanner, so I had to take a picture of the picture instead Smiley

That is 300% aweswome. I'm a total wino and just put all of our bottles out for recycling! DARN! Oh well, I'll just have to drink up and recollect some bottles. Great idea for a thread!

I love that table too!  How was it done, exactly?
