Wine Bottle Decorative Lace Table Centrepiece

If you love to entertain your guests, why not give them something beautiful to look at with a wine bottle decorative lace table centrepiece. To create your centrepiece, you will need:
• An old wine bottle or two (depending on how many you want to make).
• Pieces of 5 to 6cm wide decorative lace.
• Coloured paint (any colour you like)
• Glitter
• High strength glue
• A fake or real sunflower (or any flower you like).

Step #1 – To create your table centrepiece simply start by painting your wine bottle in the colour you desire and sprinkle the glitter across the bottle. Allow to dry.
Step #2 – Next take the lace and glue it right around the bottom of the bottle and leave to dry.
Step #3 – Once done place the single sunflower or other type of flower in the top. Not only will your guests love it but it can really bring life to any table setting.

Worded Wine Bottle Candle Holder

For those who love candles, the worded wine bottle candle holder is just the project for you. To start your project, you will need:
• Wine bottles
• Long candles that fit snuggly in the top of the bottle
• Hot glue gun
• Sand
• Coloured paint

Step #1 – To create your worded wine bottle candle holder, start by taking your glue gun and writing carefully any word you choose on the side of the bottle. Some words you can choose include family, love, eat, or home.
Step #2 – Allow your words to dry before painting the entire bottle and words in the one colour.
Step #3 – Allow to dry before pouring some sand into the bottom of the wine bottle for extra stability and support.
Step #4 – Place the candle in the top and there you have it your own decorative wine bottle candle holder.

These hanging flower vases are simple to make yet decorative when complete. To create these hanging flower vases you will need:
• A long piece of recycled wood
• 3 wine glasses
• U shaped clamps and screws

Step #1 – To create your hanging flower vases, you can start by lying your bottles down onto the piece of wood to where your hanging vases will be positioned.
Step #2 – Next take your U shaped clamps, position the neck of your bottle in the middle of the wood where you want it positioned and place the clamp over the top of the bottle neck.
Step #3 – Screw each side down until the neck of the bottle is secure and tight. Do this for all three bottles before hanging the piece of wood on the wall.
Step #4 – Fill each bottle half full with water carefully before adding your flowers. You have stunningly simple hanging flower vases.

• Easy to remove sticky tape
• Coloured ribbon

Step #1 – To make your decorative wine bottle jars simply wrap 2 pieces of sticky tape, about 10cm apart from one another, in the centre of the bottle.

Step #3 – Once dry remove the sticky tape and attach the colourful ribbon to the top of the bottle.
Step #4 – Fill the bottle with anything from rice, chocolates, M&Ms or flour before writing on the black paint with chalk. Simple and decorative all in one.
