Shedding light on another great reason to drink wine!

Anyone who knows me, knows that our crew drinks our fair share of wine, strictly for the benefits...yeah, that's why. 

Well, I've been saving colorful and interesting wine bottles in the hopes of someday getting a bottle tree...until I ran across this idea.

I was lurking around Pinterest (don't y'all just love that site!!) and found this wonderfully creative idea for wine bottle torches!!

Visit this site for a complete list of materials and instructions.  We were able to find everything we needed at Lowe's and get this done in a few hours.  Our great neighbors, Mike and Darren, brought over some of their wine bottle stash...they like to stay healthy too....and we were able to put them all along the side and back fence. 

Pretty cool, huh?  Of course, this picture would've looked even better if I'd turned on the garden lights, but....oh well.

Now for your overly cautious (neurotic) people....NO, the fence didn't burst into flames, NO it's not a Molotov's just ambiance folks!

Also, I'm told that the colored wine bottles will begin to fade and lose their color in time.  The only way I know to rectify this situation is to drink more wine...problem solved.


  1. Shannon, this is one of the coolest ideas I've ever seen. I think your backyard look awesome and these wine lights are just over the top. LOVE IT! OK, I'm on my way to pick up some WTW :)

  2. What a great idea! I'm going to have to pin it so that I don't forget it.
