Six Amazing Ways To Reuse Your Wine Bottles

So you killed that bottle of pinot noir a lot quicker than you (and your liver) had hoped. That doesn’t necessarily mean that your binge drinking has to be in vain, though. Rather, it could mean that you’re simply that much further on your way toward creating a kitschy wine bottle chandelier, or even a Christmas tree! Below, check out some of the more interesting ways to create something unique out of a habit that tends take away more than it gives.

Wine may come from a vine, but that doesn’t mean its bottles can’t make one fine tree.

Wine has always had the reputation of being more sophisticated than beer, so why not tack on the prestige of intellectualism along with it? Save your next several bottles (but make sure they’re the same height), add some rather refined wood slabs, and then–bam! You can intimidate all of your house guests with your lofty choice in party libations and your Proust anthology.

This reuse might be a bit on the nose in terms of creativity, but it doesn’t mean that it’s any less useful. You already know that the glass won’t alter the taste, after all.
