Let’s be honest for a minute. We all know that with the hot summer days and endless warm nights we all like to enjoy a few beverages than we normally would in the winter months, and I am no exception to this rule. There is something so refreshing about a cool beer at a BBQ, a tropical margarita at a pool party, warm coffee and Baileys by the campfire or a crisp white wine on a lakefront patio. But with all the extra consumption leaves empty bottles lying around destined for the recycling plant. So why not re-purpose those containers into something more useful that doesn’t remind you of your headache and sudden allergy to bright lights? I live in the beautiful Okanagan surrounded by countless wineries and I cannot turn down a good Ehrenfelser or Reisling, not to mention to experience that comes with it. Walking through lush vineyards, sampling fresh wines, soaking up sunshine and spending time with friends on a wine tour is practically ingrained in my summer DNA. So I decided to get my craft on and I rounded up some of my favorite DIY craft ideas for re-loving these beautiful little bottles.
Let us celebrate the occasion with wine and sweet words.~Plautus
