    Hi, loves! You know that feeling when you stumble upon something so incredibly cool and you say, wow, why didn’t I think of that? I had one of those a-ha moments today when I spotted wine bottle candles. If you’re planning a wine themed wedding or you just happen to love go gaga over wine, this is the find for you! These wine bottle candles are awesome on three levels: they’re a) easy, b) cheap to make, and c) they look fantastic. Plus, they’re sure to delight your guests and will be an instant conversation piece. Read on to find out more…

    Wine Bottle Candles

    Wine bottle candles are exactly what they sound like: candles that use wine bottles as a vessel. Since you (or someone you know) probably has wine bottles sitting around, waiting to be recycled, gather them up and the cost will be even more inexpensive. Basically, all you need is a favorite wine bottle, one of these, and a match to light it. You can use these wine bottle candles as chic centerpieces — I especially like the idea of lining them across the center of a long rectangular reception table.

      This is a really neat idea for all those wine lovers out there, especially if you save those bottles.
