How To Make A Hanging Wine Bottle Planter:
Don't toss out those empty wine bottles, store them up and use them to make beautiful craft items for your home. Today we'll show you how to make beautiful handing wine bottles planters to enhance the beauty of your home or garden. It's easier than you might think!
Supplies Needed To Create Your Hanging Wine Bottle Planter
- 1 x empty wine bottle
- 1x spool twine
- 1 x bag of lichen moss
- 1 x bag of Spanish moss
- 1 x 8 yard spool of 20 gauge copper wire (or chicken wire)
- 1 x Scissors
- 1 x Lighter
- 1 x standard candle
- 1 x glass cutter tool
- 1 x small, lightweight house plant (ivy plants work great!)
- 1 x package of ice
- 1 x small bucket
- 1 x masking or duct tape
- 1 x sheet of sand paper
- 1 x small bag of planting soil
Step 1: Tape End Of Wine Bottle
Create a straight line with tape around the end of your bottle. This will help support the glass cutter to make a straight line on your wine bottle. Make sure the seams line up!
Step 2: Score Wine Bottle
Use the tape as a guide on where score with your glass cutter. Press glass cutter firmly and carefully score the bottle completely around in a straight line. Only make one score line on the edge of the bottle.
Step 3: Burn Score With Candle
Next, move your work place to a concrete floor, for safety since we will be working with fire. Place candle on floor and light. Hold wine bottle over candle, slowly turning it as you go. You should hear a popping sound as you turn your wine bottle.
Step 4: Remove End Of Wine Bottle
After you have completed a circle of flames, submerge end of the bottle into ice water. It may help to light tap your wine bottle to the side of the bucket to help loosen the end of bottle. Edge didn't come out completely straight? No worries, the plant and moss we are using can help cover any imperfections.
Step 5: Sand Edge
Wear a dust mask or take your project outside for this step, glass dust plus your lungs is not a good thing. Take your sand paper and buff down the hard edges. Make sure to get the outside and inside edges of the wine bottle. Dunk your wine bottle into your ice water once more to clean off any dust.
Step 6: Clean Plant
Next, remove your house plan from it's container. Gently remove excess soil, exposing the roots. Use your wine bottle to measure to fit. Since roots can take up a lot of space, I suggest getting a small, lightweight house plant for this project.
Step 7: Cover Roots With Moss
Cut your wire into a is twice as tall as your bottle. Wrap Spanish moss and lichen moss around the roots, this helps hide roots and keep the plant from falling out of the wine bottle. Plants need to breathe, so when wrapping your wire around moss, do so gently, not tightly, this allows for water to get through and plant growth. Twist wire ends together, forming one long strand, this will become your hanging hook.
Step 8: Add Planting Soil
Since we removed soil from our plant, we need to add some more to our plant's new home. Plug up the wine bottle top with a paper towel and add two handfuls of planting soil to your wine bottle.
Step 9: Insert Plant Into Wine Bottle
Remove the paper towel plugging the lip of the wine bottle, and push plant through the layer of soil till wire is exposed at the top.
Step 10: Add Twine
To finish off this look we added twine to the lip of the bottle and up through wire that will be our hanger. Then take your lighter to get rid of the twine fuzziness.
Step 11: Water and Hang
Our little plant deserves a water break, pour water through the top of the wine bottle over a sink, to avoid spilling. After your plant has had it's fill, hang your beautiful new wine bottle planter indoors our outdoors, salute!
