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. However there are occassions when creativity takes presedence over alcohol enhanced relaxation. So here are 5 great ways I have found to make use of those extra wine bottles. 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.

I think this is one of the simplest yet coolest uses of empty wine bottles. It’s not as simple as jamming a candle in the top yet no so difficult that you can’t do it yourself. With some basic glass cutting techniques (please be careful) and a few candles you can have an interesting and functional element for your kitchen, mantel or patio.
