|How to Recycle Wine Bottles, Corks, and Labels|
|Written by Peggy Hazelwood|
Recycle your used wine bottles to keep them out of the landfill. Wine bottles, corks, and labels can be used in many craft activities for both children and adults.
1. Rinse and Reuse
Use the empty wine bottle as a vase for long stemmed flowers.
2. Save the Labels
Wine bottle labels can be beautiful mini works of art. Soak the empty wine bottle in warm water. The label should come off in the water or help it along by peeling it carefully at the loose edges. Frame a collage of wine bottle labels or just one. Or use them for scrap booking to commemorate a special occasion.
3. Off with Your Neck!
Get a glass cutter and cut the neck off the wine bottles. Grind down the tops to make them smooth and use the empty wine bottles for drinking glasses or vases.
4. Corks, Corks, Corks
Make a cork board with wine bottle corks. Hot glue them to a board for a one of a kind bulletin board.
