Easy Wine Bottle Crafts For Christmas
Cover Them With Tiny Glass Pebbles
Pebbles are cute themselves, and when they come and join wine bottles that carry a ladylike elegance already, the combo is worth all the attention in the world. These pebble- studded wine bottles can be used as pendant lights or simply as objects of decor for tables. The glass pebbles can be clear or colorful. If colored, their arrangement on the bottle can follow some attractive pattern.
Decorate Them With Laces
Yes, wine bottles decorated for Christmas must look completely dressed up. And to dress them up, you can use beautiful laces. Starting from broad decorative laces to thin detailed ones, you can use any style to decorate your wine bottles. Further, you can use the laces to decorate the bottom of the bottles, their top, or the middle part. If you like, you can cover the bottle’s entire surface or use the laces scantily. It doesn’t really matter how much surface you cover, what matters is how much aesthetics you have put into lacing the bottle. Once laced, you can use the bottle as a centerpiece or a routine flower vase.
Message In A Wine Bottle

Glitter On Your Wine Bottles
