There is one thing about drinking my beloved wine that causes me to pause, this particular nuance of sipping the garnet elixir can be slightly embarrassing when the neighbors are around to witness it, that is the huge crash of broken bottles when you take out the trash from a weekend (or a work week, I don't judge) of delightful wine drinking. That sound, the glass on glass shattering, that in your face reminder of just how much you have been partaking in, gave me the inspiration to start upcycling my empty wine bottles.
Now, I could just line up the empty bottles along the top of a cabinet as in a murderers row of deliciousness, but I decided that in the current state of DIY in our world I would dig around the web for more inspiring ways to upcycle, and here is what I have to offer you (warning, get ready to fall in love with these ideas):
Wine Bottle Garden Edger: by Commercial Appeal
I love this idea, no cutting, no crazy tools that I would not be able to master in a weekend, just plain old fashion digging a hole, sticking in the bottle, and letting it age. I am going to start collecting my empty wine bottles tonight and do this in our back yard asap. Please visit Commercial Appeal for the details.
