How-To + DIY | Recycling Wine Bottles + Corks As Jewelry Holders


howto_diy-logo

Such a neat idea, even before you get reading good, from the title alone, you’re already thinking of what to do with that empty wine bottle you just finished the other night. Or with all the other empty bottles sitting up somewhere in your kitchen because you just “can’t” throw them away, eh? Politely stolen from Miss Sophisticate, here’s to repurposing your wine bottles and even the corks that come with it. I’m going to make this, one day soon.

WHAT YOU WILL NEED:

  • A handful of corks — depending on how big you want your jewelry holder
  • Glue (preferably hot glue)
  • 1 picture frame

First, arrange your corks onto the picture frame in the format you desire. Once you’ve finalized the layout, apply glue to the side of the cork that will be face down. Gently press this side onto the glass surface of the frame (Tip: Apply the outer corks first, working your way in). If you decide to do a couple stand-up corks like I did, insert a clear thumbtack into the top of the corks before gluing them down.

Wait a few hours if you are using school glue for the glue to completely dry. Then place your rings in between corks or hang off thumbtacks. I also displayed a few larger pieces to create some juxtaposition between the delicate pieces and larger pieces of jewelry.

With the bottle, simply add some bangles, watches, or bracelets around the top. Don’t have a wine bottle? Old vintage glass bottles and mason jars work well too :) xoxo
