Go-Green With Wine – Project #1

Share the joy



start saving your wine bottles & have your girls over for a night of crafts! I put together this weekly blog “Go Green With..” to encourage recycling !  I want to start off with crafty ways to recycle wine bottles because well… who doesn’t love wine? 

I have 6 total projects on this topic, but you will have to check back each week to see what they are & steps on how to do them. 

Drinking wine will never be the same after keeping up with us this next 6 weeks.You will find yourself enjoying a glass of wine while brainstorming your next crafty idea for the bottle when your done.





Everyone loves fresh flowers, but the same old glass vase can get boring from time-to-time. Get creative and paper mache a wine bottle (LEFT) or paint your bottle with chalk bored paint (RIGHT). You can find chalk bored paint in almost every craft store, I’ve even seen it at Walmart! Once your bottle is ready cut a couple flowers from the garden & you will have an elegant center piece everyone will be talking about.

The idea of recycling is to reuse material already at hand. Doing this reduces the progression of built up material on our planet. The goal is to have a cleaner less cluttered earth and enjoy more of Its natural beauty !
Every year there is an increase of people jumping on bored with recycling. To encourage others and give yourself a friendly reminder you can introduce fun ways to recycle.
So start saving your wine bottles and have some friends and family over for a night of crafts!

Caution: Keep in mind that you will be working with glass so it is important to use all safety precautions !



As always we would love to hear from you! Leave us a comment on your experience doing project #1 and/or share with us other creative ways you have recycled your wine bottles.
