We Artfully Repurpose Wine Bottles into Beautiful, Useful, and Unique Items!
These items include bottle lights, photo memory bottles, hanging lanterns, bird feeders, patio torches, luminaria, garden sculpture, wind chimes, spirit bottles, incense burners, tableware and more. Our popular items make unique and memorable gifts!
All of our items are handcrafted. All designs that include hand painting are cured and permanent.
Bottles begin their transformation with washing and removal of labels. We gather bottles for upcycling from friends and a few restaurants. Each bottle is cleaned, and prepared for re-purposing. Based on the end design, the bottle is drilled with a hole or cut. Cut edges are polished and wrapped with three layers of copper foil. Wire wrapping is done by hand. Lanterns have our exclusive hand wire-wrapped candle holder, designed for durability. Copper wire, galvanized wire, jewelry wire and alloy wire are used. Glass beads, vintage glassware and special epoxies that are weather tested are also included in our materials list.
We recommend using LED candles in all lanterns and luminaries for a safe, clean and beautiful glow. All hand painted designs are done with a heat-cured glass paint which is permanent. We recommend cleaning with a damp cloth when necessary.
Lighted Bottles and Incense Bottles are drilled in the back and the hole is finished with a grommet. This allows for airflow and/or the lighting electrical cord. 20 Mini lights or battery LED's are used in Lighted Bottles and if one or more bulbs go out, others stay lit.
