One of the Best Wine Bottle Crafts

We’ve been spending a lot of time on our patio lately. I’ve filled it with lavender and catmint, but I’ve added a wine bottle tiki torch for a little extra protection from mosquitos. It also adds a little ambiance. It’s time to look at your empty wine bottles in a new light – or as a new light!

How To Make a Wine Tiki Torch:

Wrap the smaller portion of the copper coupling with tape until it fits snug into the wine bottle. The tape gives a little, so don’t be afraid to go overboard.

Pull the wick through the coupling, leaving an inch of wick at the top.

Using a funnel, fill your wine bottle with citronella fuel.

Inset the copper coupling and wick ensuring a tight fit.

Decorating With A Wine Bottle Tiki Torch

This wine bottle tiki torch looks great styled with a nice arrangement of flowers to add a little pop of color to the table. To learn the best ways to arrange flowers, check out my post on How to Arrange Flowers.

Once you have the scene set, you can’t forget the snacks, like this Lemon Pie, or an amazing Santa Fe Cheese Ball.

To keep it from tipping over, create a torch or place it in a wine chiller.

Make sure your snuff it completely before leaving it. I turn a juice glass upside down to put ours out.
