Decorate Your Wine Bottle

A fiasco similar to those traditionally used for Chianti

Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!

Giving your Sweetie Pie a bottle of wine on Valentine’s Day?  In addition to presenting it with a fancy bow or ribbon attached, there are lots of fun, inexpensive decorations the two of you can make from it the same evening (once you both finish it!)  A bottle works great as a vase, so if you have a few pretty flowers, now you know where to put them.  You don’t need many, and just a couple can look quite lovely.  If you have several empty bottles waiting to be tossed, consider lining them up on the mantle with a rose or two in each for a Valentine’s surprise.  For a fun, romantic Italian atmosphere at home, place a lit candle in an empty bottle of Chianti while you dine.  Consider printing out a love poem and gluing it tastefully over the bottle, too!

  • You can paint and decorate your wine bottles, and even frost them with glitter spray to create delicate centerpieces.
  • Fill some empty bottles with water and place them around a short candle so the soft light twinkles through.  If your bottles are clear, add some food coloring to the water!  Have fun!
  • Consider filling empty bottles with bath salts, then wrapping them up as gifts, or even filling an empty bottle with liquid soap to make your tub area look a bit more elegant.  (Be sure to substitute a soap hand pump for the cork, for convenience!)

With a little creative thought, there’s quite a bit you can do inexpensively with an empty bottle.  Why not make a fun, intimate craft project out of your bottle together this Valentine’s Day?
