A taste for wine could be your entre to a whole new world of garden accents by recycling those gorgeous and colorful wine bottles. There are a number of creative ways to use wine bottles in the garden. One of the swankiest garden borders ever is fashioned from a row of upturned wine bottles, necks inserted into the soil, to march along the edge with savoir faire to spare.

Other uses include sections of “crushed” wine bottles of one color or a mix for textural contrast, though definitely not for bare feet. Get out that old bottle cutter to create hefty candle holders to place alongside garden paths, or use wine bottles to hold tiny clear lights for festive garden illumination. What better way to relive those special times with those special bottles of wine? If the subject has whetted your appetite for more wine bottle ideas and inspriation, visit the creative blog:
