I might be on a little kick with wine bottles lately…I can’t help it, there’s just so many amazing possibilities using the corks and empty bottles! If you enjoyed my recent post on making a Wine Cork Mat , then this next “how to” should really get your creative juices flowing! There are tons of ways to up-cycle those empty wine bottles we all aquire, but many of the projects you’ll find require the wine bottle to be cut in half…sounds scary, I know. Really this process is much easier than you may think, all you need is some string, a little nail polish remover, and a match.
Sitting on my dining room table, I currently have half a dozen projects in various states of doneness. Some involve vivisected computer parts, others will eventually be wearable and a few are just cool things I’ve ran across on the internet. I like doing things myself — I think the DIY bug is one of the best communicable diseases in the lifehack community. These eighty sites are the places I turn to when I’m trying to figure out how to accomplish any particular goal. Any time I’m facing a new project, I start searching for how-tos that will help me figure out how other people did similar things and how likely I am to finish the project with all ten fingers still intact. I’ve broken them up into a few different categories, just to help you narrow down what you might be looking for.
