Decorating DIY: Wine Bottle Vases from Design Sponge

The best decor DIYs are the ones that utilise items you've already got lying around the house and have no other use for. So if you've recently had a party (or maybe you've just been hitting the vino solo-style - we won't judge!) and know your way around a tool box then this is the DIY for you! This tutorial over at Design Sponge shows you how to turn your empty bottles into wall-mounted vases for a space-saving and modern take on the standard vase. Wall-mounted vases are a little bit more complicated than your standard crafty DIY, but the overall look is definitely well worth the effort. Plus the sense of satisfaction you'll get every time you look at it is priceless! If you're quaking at the idea of power tools then I'd definitely suggest turning this into a team effort and inviting a handy friend over to help. You can always split the jobs - they install the vases and you can drink the wine!

YOU WILL NEED (per vase):

  • (1) Empty wine bottle of your choice
  • (1) Top plate connector/ceiling flanges (3/8″ size)
  • (1) 1″ split ring hanger
  • (2) screws to fit and hold the top plate connector (you may also want drywall anchors if you are not mounting directly into studs or another material)
  • (1) piece of 3/8″ threaded rod, cut into 2 1/2″ pieces
  • 1/2″ double sided foam mounting tape (optional – if your bottle’s neck is smaller than 1″, like ours were)
  • Silk flowers of your choice
Head over to Design Sponge for all the instructions and to get more beautiful design inspiration (not to mention a sneak peak into some of the most lust-worthy apartments and cities in the world!).

    If only I could convince my bf that he could put his collection of power tools to good use and install some vases! Unfortunately his “minimalistic” (non-existent) decorating style wouldn’t allow for these 😛

    Gorgeous designs and you just gave me another excuse to be able to drink lots of wine. Winning.

    Really cute! Unfortunately I don’t have any wall-space left :( Plus with little kids around the place I’d probably have to install them too high to look good anyway!
