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.
