DIY Wine Bottle with Fairy Lights

I recently shared my  fall wine  theme dinner table. I talked about the wine bottles with grapes and fairy lights. This is a tutorial on how I created them.

First of all, we have no shortage of wine bottles in our house.

Our dining room has a sub-zero wine refrigerator for red and white wines.  The bottom half is two refrigerator drawers, where we store bottled water, juices and soda.

This is the instructions for creating your own decorative wine bottle with fairy lights. You can  be as creative as you like with your choices of gems, fairy lights and grapes.

Materials Needed


Start with a clean wine bottle of your choice.  Remove the labels, so the bottle has a clean look.
Always wear protective eye glasses and gloves when working with glass.
A drill is needed.  Drill a hole with the 1/2" Diamond Tile Drill Bit. Put a piece of tape where you intend to drill. My husband used a cordless Hitachi drill. He applied steady pressure to the bottle.
After drilling, rinse out the glass residue and dry the bottle.

The drilled hole is for the fairy lights.  These fairy light have a small battery compartment. I add the twine around the top of the bottle before I glue the purple gems on. Just glue the first part of the twine in the back of the bottle and keep winding around and glue the tail end.

Glue the purple gems, flat side down at the bottom of the bottom.  Start gluing  your gems to create a grape cluster. You can see how I started gluing the gems to resemble a grape cluster. I applied the gems as purple grapes to both sides of the bottle, since I wanted to use these on my dining table.

Lastly, add your fairy lights.  Just feed the fairy lights through the drilled hole.  I turned the bottle over and I fed the lights to the top of the bottle.  I hung one wired light over and then used the cork to hold it in place. I  used purple fairy lights to highlight the gems.
My finished wine grape bottle. Cheers!
