Yesterday we shared some cool ideas to reuse your old wine bottles in various ways, and today I’d like to give you some more ideas, this time for outdoors.
The first idea is for gardeners. How will you water your plants if you are away for several days? First, you’ll want to rinse and fill your wine bottle with water. Stick a cork in it. Push it down as far as it will go. Next, using a nail create a hole going through the entire length of the cork and remove. Insert wine bottle upside down into plant and it will be hydrated for up to 3 days!
There’s no summer without mosquitos and various other types of insects but here’s a way to get rid of them – make a couple of tiki torches and citronella candles. Fill your bottles with citronella fuel and add wicks, and you may also put craft pebbles for décor.
Now let’s take care of birds. There are various ways to make bird and hummingbird feeders using the nose or the bottom of the bottle, just follow the instructions in the tutorial that you like.
Having an outdoor celebration or party? Make hanging vases of wine bottles, fill them with water and add flowers.
If you have a lot of bottles, you can even make an outdoor fence using them. All you need to do is to take recycled glass bottles of different colors and put them on steel poles, you could easily do that yourself.
Hanging planters of wine bottles is another cool idea. You first have to cut the glass bottle and as you can not use soil as a planting medium, use moss or peat. Use wire bound or small rope tied just below the bottle’s threads to hang it.
Wind chimes are a cool outdoor decoration with adorable sounds, and you can make some using old wine bottles. Handcut each bottle, then grind the edges to a smooth finish. After assembling the wind chime, test each one outside for its durability.
