Glass Gem Wine Bottle Vase

Recycling wine bottles into serviceable vases can be fun and easy. Using the G2 Bottle Cutter, transform wine bottles to match your home décor, to use as holiday décor accents, or to create party vases. Add glass gems and flower or seasonal holiday picks for the finishing touch!

Materials Needed:

Instructions:

1. Using the bottle cutter, cut the bottom of the wine bottle off. (Refer to video tutorial for bottle cutting instructions!)

2. Sand the bottom of the bottle.

3. Starting at the bottom of the bottle neck, adhere the glass gems to the bottle in the shape of a grape cluster. Use the hot glue gun to adhere the glass gems.

4. Add the gems in rows, starting with a long row at the top and work down in an inverted pyramid shape. Unevenness is good!

5. Use the hot glue gun to attach the grape leaves to the top row of the grape cluster.

6. Attach glass gem leaf to the top of one of the grape leaves, using the hot glue gun.

7. Apply a dot of hot glue to the top of the mouth of the bottle. Place one end of the raffia into the glue and wrap the raffia around the neck of the bottle.

8. Work your way around the neck of the bottle, adding hot glue in varied areas for security. Stop at the top of the grapevine leaves.

9. Tie a small bow using the raffia and hot glue it to the bottle at the top of the glass gem leaf.

10. Place tea light or LED lights under the bottle.
