Wine bottle repurpose

My bottle tree is full unless I add some more big nails. The problem is that I am continuing to have empty wine bottles that I hate to throw away. Hmm.
How about wine bottle plant/row labels in the garden.
I like to use Citrus Magic to remove the labels. It is actually an air freshener, but it does the job beautifully while smelling good! Then I use a paint pen to write on the wine bottle. Hmm, Now I need more empty wine bottles.
Y'all come back,


  1. I love the idea of using wine bottles for plant/row labels. So creative. I also adore your bottle tree. I'd love to have one in my garden. Seems like empty wine bottles are not hard to find in my house, LOL:)

    PS Thanks again for the blogger award. You made my day:) I'm writing a post and planning on passing on the blogging love. Thanks again.

  2. Love what you are doing with the wine bottles! Thanks for the tip with Citrus Magic, too!

  3. Love it! I was working on a wine bottle re-use idea. It didn't work. I like yours. Thanks for the Citrus Magic tip. I have the hardest time getting the labels off of anything. When I was a kid we would just soak them in hot soapy water. It doesn't really work that well anymore.

  4. i have a full bottle tree, also. i put it up under an oak tree with some flagstone work nearby - just because i was afraid of the hot summer sun glinting off the glass and starting a wildfire! hope your garden is safe! :)

  5. I've got one small flower bed that has a wine bottle border. My hubby buried them about 1/2 in the ground.

    Good idea for markers.

    I also have a hanging bottle tree. Used a 4x4, big nails and a big eye hook to hang it from the porch.

    Of course, you can do like me and have several bottle trees in your yard!

  6. How interesting. I saw one once filled with mostly blue bottles.

  7. I saw a cool DIY project recently where someboday took wine bottles and cut off the tops and made drinking glasses. You need a glass cutter/filer for that though. Love this idea! I've always wanted a bottle tree.

  8. Hey Lorilee! You were one of my winners of the earring giveaway we did a few weeks ago... sorry it's taken me a while to get in touch with you. I couldn't find an email address for you anywhere on yoru blog, so I'm just leaving you a comment :) Can you email me with your address and the color of earrings you'd like? Thanks so much! I am going to get them done this weekend and mailed off on Monday. Have a fabulous weekend!

  9. OK, you are just TOO clever! What a great idea for the wine bottles, and I have to try that citrus spray. I always get so aggravated trying to remove labels (I save my spaghetti sauce jars for later canning...they are the only store bought ones that are tempered enough to use that way, and jars are SOOOO expensive!) Love your bottle tree, too, by the way.

  10. I needed to put you the little bit of observation just to thank you so much as before for your awesome opinions you have discussed on this page. This is simply seriously open-handed with you to grant extensively precisely what a lot of folks might have made available for an e book to generate some cash on their own, principally given that you could possibly have tried it if you ever wanted. These good ideas as well acted to become a great way to be aware that other individuals have similar desire similar to my very own to grasp a great deal more when considering this issue. I know there are millions of more enjoyable moments up front for people who examine your website.
