Wine Bottle DIY: Aging and Bottling

If you’ve been following along, you’ve seen the harvest, crush, and the fermentation. To complete the final stages, our wine bottles will be aged in their cases waiting for our wedding day, where they’ll make their bottling debut. Are you ready to see the fruits of our labor??


Just a tease through the looking glass…


Thirsty for more??


Centerpiece trio of dark greens


One of my favorite blue-green bottles


Delicious emerald greens


Graceful sloping bottle to mix it up a bit


Surplus tall vases that would make great hurricanes around the guestbook or escort-card table

Hard to believe, but this DIY is done, dude! We’re happy with the results…but we’re even happier that the source materials were FREE and recyclable and showcase our shared interest at the wedding and beyond.


How are you integrating a shared interest into your decor?

    Congrats on being finished! I remember being so SO SO happy when we finished all our bottles. Be careful with them now though, I showed one to Avocado the night before the wedding and she accidentally broke it! Luckily, I had a few back ups, but it’s still so much work!

    If only I had known you sooner! We still have so many of these left over from the wedding. I couldn’t part with them either because it’s how I roll….hoping to find a use for them soon though.
