Wine Bottle Planters

Before you throw away wine bottles that have accumulated in the kitchen, try using it for a different purpose like a planter. You can easily make these elegant looking self-watering wine planters using an empty bottle of wine (any color would do), yarn (enough to warm around the wine bottle), nail polish remover, wick, gloves, candle, lighter, and a bowl of cold water.

Before you start doing anything wear a pair of gloves to protect your hands from the sharp glass. Next you need to cut the wine glass in half and you can do this by soaking the yarn with nail polish remover. Wrap the wet yarn around the wine bottle then light the yarn with the lighted candle. Wait for 10-15 seconds until the yarn is burned all the way around. Immediately dip the bottle in the cold water and the wine will break in half leaving a clean cut.

With the bottle cut in half all you need to do is to reverse the upper part of the bottle to fit to the bottom part, but first, you need to fill the end of the bottle with water. Pass a wick from the top part to the hole then down to the water. Fill the planter with soil and it’s now ready to use.
