Upcycling: Wine Bottle Tiki Torches

I am SO making some of these for my deck!

Via Geardot:

I love the simplicity of the design, the uncluttered lines, and I often LOVE the artwork on wine bottle labels I’ve emptied and mourn the fact that they go away so quickly, discarded in the recycle bin.

Unlike the designer, who appears to have gone to the hardware store to buy the mounting pieces, I’ll head to Bellingham’s own RE Store, an amazing outlet for reclaimed building materials, where I’m pretty sure I can find everything except the wick and torch fuel.

How cool will it be on a warm summer night, hanging on the deck, drinking wine and making music with friends, to the glow of these awesome torches?

  1. I knew I wanted to do this just from the headline!

    Added bonus, should the people decide to take the streets… Presto molotov cocktails to go. Just kidding, I do not endorse violence.

    1. Yeah, the blue really jumped out at me, and the funny thing is that I can’t think of any wines I’ve ever had that came in blue bottles.

      I might just have to buy a wine in a blue bottle and drink it, even if it’s lousy, just so I can have at least one blue tiki torch.

      Like I said, I’m willing to suffer. 🙂
