I fell in love with this idea as I’m really into “wine theme” decor at the moment. After collecting tons of corks over a couple months, I was able to put this together in time for the holidays and it was the perfect piece (and currently my favorite!) for one of my mantles.
Friday night I went to sleep completely looking forward to my Saturday morning. Despite that my husband and I were hosting a Thanksgiving dinner later that evening with close friends in Milan (naturally, we had to save it for the weekend since we didn’t have time off during the work week), I had decided that I would spend the morning working on some creative projects, which is one of my favorite things to do when I have a bit of time.
The mix of decorated bottles creates a beautiful look for lining a mantle, table or shelf. This was one of my DIY projects this week as I wanted to start making our place look a little more festive for the holidays. I used yarn and hemp for some of the more “natural” Asian-inspired looking designs, and white spray paint (matte finish) topped with thin gold flakes for the more decorative looking pieces. I love the contrast of materials with the gold-laced pinecones and accent color of the flower buds. It’s perfect for the holidays.
I know it’s only the first week of November and we haven’t even had Thanksgiving yet, but there’s nothing wrong with starting the festive decor a bit early! I love the way it makes my place feel, especially now that it’s getting really cold, crisp and rainy here in Milan. This week’s project is centered on the topic of “JOY”… accented with little gold star cut-outs. Just like the “L.O.V.E.” Home Decor project, all you need are some empty wine bottles, a hot glue gun, yarn and for this one specifically, some brown natural colored string.
If you have empty wine bottles laying around they are great for home decor/DIY projects. All you need is some yarn, a hot glue gun and a bit of patience 🙂 They’re perfect for any season, really – and especially for the fall/winter because they are just so warm and cozy looking, aren’t they?
A fun ‘do-it-yourself’ project that’ll have your house smelling like a warm chai latte – perfect for the fall ❤
I had a sudden burst of creativity a couple weeks ago and decided to use a wooden hanger to create a jewelry display for some fun, colorful jewelry that needed a home. Bonus: it adds an artistic vibe and a bit of life to white space too.
