There are tons and tons of do-it-yourself projects out there for what to do with empty wine bottles. Now since I make my own wine I prefer to fill them back up and empty them again whenever I get the chance.

And of course, after building one of these do-it-yourself projects, feel free to take a few moments to relax and start replenishing your supply of empty bottles.
