    look up wine bottle lights - stuff christmas lights inside. Some people drill a hole in bottom for the cord - others let it hang out. Some people decorate with glass pebbles, jewels or greenery, others paint the outside (designs or just frosted paint). Also use to make regular lamps - cut down to make vases, glasses candle holders. clean and sanitize to hold home made liquers for gifting

    With the reg. sze wine bottles you can drill a hole in bottom with glass drill bit,then wash out glass chips good,let dry well. Add clear christmas lights,then add a flower pick and nice bow. These are real pretty if you have nice labels on the bottles.Might want to type in wine bottle crafts n addy bar and see what you come up with also. Hope this helps some. Good luck!

    Re: liquor bottle crafts?

    a simple craft I do with them is to paint the outside with acrylic paints and then decoupage them. I have some I put angels on and made them into vases and put a rose or two and made a little card to hang off of the flowers. They come out really nice. I also decoupaged whiskey bottles I made these into Dallas Cowboy themed bottles. I paint them blue, then put silver around the bottom rim, silver around the top and then decoupage favorite players on each side etc. I use the triple coat sealer but I can not think of the name of it, you can get it at Wal Mart or most craft stores it gives it a really glossy shine. I will try to get you some pics if you like this idea, I am having problems getting my camera to hook up the computer for some reason so if I can get this figured out later tonight or maybe tomorrow I can get some pics ok =)

    i saw on hgtv where they made a table. the bottles were the legs, and you have to cut a piece of wood for the top. it was real cool, maybe you could do a search on their site and find it.

    I've seen people making bottles for your dish soap, by adding some decorative rub-on transfers or paint the outside, then add a pouring top, like you put on liquor bottles to pour shots (I'm not sure what you call them, but the have them at Linens 'n Things & Bed, Bath & Beyond)
