Spring Cleaning: DIY Wine Crafts



This spring think twice before chucking those empty wine bottles and popped corks. Unleash your inner creativity for a vino themed arts and crafts project to spruce up your space.

Corked Boards


Cork collection piling up? Grab a glue gun and create a design that covers the surface area inside any sized picture frame. Purchase sticky notes and pushpins to tack reminder memos so that you’ll never miss another wine tasting!


Vino Vase


Welcome springtime by transforming a wine bottle into a flower vase. This is a great way to commemorate a bottle that holds special meaning or was particularly enjoyable. If you prefer no label, peel off as much as possible and use a wet sponge to remove the rest.


Bottle Bookends


Display your good reads in between beautifully decorated book ends. Decorate your bottles with spring inspired pastel colors, using this technique: pour paint inside an empty clear bottle, roll the paint around until it covers the inside, then prop it upside down on a cooling rack and let it drip over a sheet of parchment paper. When fully dried, fill with sand to add weight.


Running low on the most important supply for these crafts? Stock up by emptying a bottle or two of these spring appropriate light bodied reds, fuller bodied whites or rosés at your next gathering.
