Yesterday we shared some cool ideas for reusing your old wine bottles in different ways and today I want to give you some more ideas, this time for the outdoors.
The first idea is for gardeners. How do you water your plants when you are away for several days? First, you’ll want to rinse your wine bottle and fill it with water. Put a cork in there. Push it down as far as you can. Next, use a nail to make a hole the length of the cork and remove it. Insert the wine bottle upside down into the plant and it will be hydrated for up to 3 days!
There’s no summer without mosquitos and various other types of insects, but here’s one way to get rid of them – make some tiki torches and citronella candles. Fill your bottles with citronella fuel and add wicks. You can also use craft pebbles as decoration.
Now let’s take care of birds. There are several ways to make bird and hummingbird feed troughs with the nose or the bottom of the bottle. Just follow the instructions in the tutorial you want.
Are you partying or partying outdoors? Make hanging vases out of wine bottles, fill them with water and add flowers.
If you have a lot of bottles, you can even use them to build an outside fence. All you have to do is take recycled glass bottles of different colors and put them on steel bars. You can easily do this yourself.
Hanging planters with wine bottles is another cool idea. You need to cut the glass bottle first and since you cannot use soil as a planting medium, use moss or peat. Use a wire or small rope tied just below the bottle threads for hanging.
Wind chimes are cool outdoor decor with adorable sounds, and you can do some with old wine bottles. Hand cut each bottle and sand the edges smooth. After assembling the greyhound, test each one outdoors for durability.
Summer is almost here and when you are hosting some parties, the beverages should be the main focus. Let's take a look at some cool and tasty summer party cocktails that you can make to keep your guests happy.
A perfectly fruity raspberry sangria that is easy to sip for a party or on the porch on a summer afternoon. Serving in cute mason jars with striped straws is completely optional, although highly recommended.
These lime and strawberry margaritas are so refreshing! This fruity drink is made from natural ingredients and is ready in less than 10 minutes. It will be the star of your happy hour.
Sangria is something that many people associate with parties, and rightly so, as it is a great drink to serve a crowd. It's also elegant enough to drink all spring and summer long. Gently sweet, fruity and with a nice freshness from the mint it is a wonderful sippable drink.
In this delicious, fresh and light raspberry vodka & beer cocktail, raspberries accompany light beer and raspberry vodka with a refreshing spring or summer drink! The best recommended usage is when using light beer. Raspberry lemonade concentrate can be replaced with pink lemonade.
Blackberry Mojito Sangria is a fun party drink for every season. It's super refreshing and delightful, and great for spring and summer parties. This blackberry mojito sangria actually combines two drinks into one, for a cocktail that is light and fresh for the season. It's filled with lots of fresh blackberries, mint, lime, a healthy dash of rum and dry white wine. This is the perfect cocktail to sip all afternoon.
A fun twist on the traditional lemonade that is wonderfully spicy, sweet, refreshing and incredibly easy to make! It's much more refreshing than sitting by the sea with sand in your hair. It gets even better when you watch Orange is the New Black with this lemonade in hand.
Pineapple-ginger mojitos with spiced rum - a sweet and spicy variant of the classic cocktail. This cocktail is great for summer barbecues or just relaxing at the end of a tough week. Since the recipe is to cut down on pineapple juice to make it more concentrated and therefore sweeter, there really is no need to add any sugar.
This southern planter loft was inspired by our family's recent trip to South Carolina. When the days are as hot and humid as the south, a refreshing drink like this is exactly what you need! If you want to make an adult-only version, you can add a little rum to the mix.
This Sex On The Beach recipe is bursting with fruity summer refreshment. Colored like a beautiful sunset, this is the perfect cocktail for your summer party! This recipe is very low in saturated fat, cholesterol free, very low in sodium, and very high in vitamin B6 and vitamin C.
If you are over 21, then you need to rush to the kitchen and prepare this lemonade and prosecco punch for your next party. Lemonade, prosecco, vodka, blackberry, and mint - it's a bubbly sangria recipe that everyone will fall for, and it only takes about 5 minutes to make a jug of it!
In our opinion, the best gin & tonic to cool off on a hot summer's day is this refreshing Hendrick's cucumber gin & tonic. There's something about the botanicals in Hendricks Gin, including rose petals and cucumber, that is just perfect for summer.
