Recycling all those wine bottles!

Yes, you know what I am talking about!

I saw this cool idea a few months ago and have been dying to do it.
It is just taking an empty wine bottle that has been washed and cleaned off, a few parts from the hardware store, tiki oil and wicks!  It is that easy.  Check out the link they give all the particulars!

We went to Lowes last weekend and bought the parts, about $5 for all of them, then we bought the tiki oil and had to hunt down the wicks.  Must be that time of year.

I don't have a pic of us putting it together, but if you check out the link they give great directions!

Here is a pic of the finished product!

Last weekend we had a fire in the fire pit and lit this up.  It worked great!  Not I just need to find a blue wine bottle.  Anyone know what kind of wine uses blue bottles?

Have a great weekend

I love the idea of reusing bottles that way. What a way to shed a little light!

Hi I saw this on the link party at Shabby Chic! Cute idea! We have a huge deck and this would be great!

Blue Nun I think puts their white wine in a blue bottle. :o)

Drop by and see my Shabby Chic project...It's yo-yo flower decorated tote bags. :o)

I just found this post. What a great idea. Just last week I saw some fabulous blue wine bottles (with wine) for $8 at my local World Market! I'll have to try this!
