Wine Bottle Candle Holder Tutorial

How to Upcycle Wine Bottles into Candle Holders @savedbyloves @proteawines

 

Magnify and reflect candlelight in these gorgeous green wine bottle tiered holders.  This project involves cutting bottles and gluing bottoms to tops, giving you luxury style on a dime in no time. Tiered candle holders make great mantle décor and centerpieces for all occasions.

Protea Wine Bottle Upcycle ProjectI was given these beautiful Protea Wine Bottles to use.  They have the coolest designs, don’t they?  Sadly, I shattered one of them, but the other survived! Here is how I did it…

MATERIALS

-Bottle cutting supplies (I use Creator’s Bottle Cutter)
E6000 Industrial Glue
-green wine bottles
-Rubbing alcohol or glass cleaner
-Paper Towels

DIRECTIONS

1. Remove labels
2. Clean glass bottles with rubbing alcohol or glass cleaner before cutting.
3. For detailed bottle cutting instructions, see How to Cut Wine Bottles. Cut wine bottles in three heights from the bottom of the bottle to the cut line. You can eyeball it, or measure with a rule and mark with a sharpie. The smallest bottle could be four inches, the middle five inches, then six to get an equal gradient in height for your final candle holders.  Use the top of the wine bottle for your candle holder base, or cut beer bottle necks for the base.  That is what I did for this project.

5. Gather the tops of the beer bottles and the bottoms of the wine bottles, and make sure they are clean.

6. Apply E6000 to the mouth of the beer bottle and place on flat surface.
7. Place and center cut wine bottle on top of the glue.
8. Let dry overnight.

9. Add filler and candles. Flameless LED tea lights are shown here, on top of filler sand.
