Do you ever find yourself choosing a wine because of the bottle? I have, all because I’ve found a craft idea that inspired me, and that particular bottle size or shape is perfect.

I’ve spent considerable time searching for wine bottle craft ideas to feature in this article that include tutorials for making the craft. You’ll find a wide variety of ideas: some of them simple, fun, and easy, and some elegant in design and style.

After making a few projects and learning the basic techniques needed for the different projects, you’ll be able to customize your wine bottle gifts. I’ve made a number of wine bottle gifts like the ones shown above by following the easy-to-understand directions found at Cameo Cottage Designs. You’ll love making these!

Imagine making these beautiful nautical wine bottles to place on your mantel or side table.

Hi, Loraine. This is a very impressive list. Your profile says it involves hours of work. I believe it. So many great ideas to check out I'll have to follow.

I love it that with crafts we can take an idea and change it to suit our wants or needs. Love your dry bean storage idea. Would look great on the countertop.

Great Ideas! For a wine drinker like myself, this really gets me rethinking my "trash" :)

I love the cork keychains and the bird feeder idea got me wondering if I could store dry beans and what not in my bottles. Hmmm ;)
