I’m one of those people with hundreds of DIY projects on my to-do list. You know, turn a cutting board into a side table, washi-tape my sofa legs, construct a hanging outdoor bar and ombre a dresser. Some of those are pretty big projects, and I live in an apartment without a proper place to paint, so I decided to start small this week with a project from our very own HGTV.com.
As the co-editor for HGTV.com’s Holiday House package, I’ve been swooning over the wine bottle candelabra project since it came in. I started storing my empty wine bottles, and once I had enough, I got to work with my spray paint.
Wine bottle candelabras light up the entryway at HGTV.com’s Holiday House.
As you can see, the wine bottle candelabras were constructed as dramatic entryway lighting at this year’s Holiday House. (That’s a lot of vino!) Since I don’t have an entryway, I took a different approach. See how my wine bottle candelabras turned out after the jump.

Ta-da! I spray painted five wine bottles of various shapes and sizes in a shiny metallic silver. Then, to make the candlesticks fit into the bottle mouths, I melted the bottom of the candlesticks down just a little all the way around. Once the candle wax drips down the bottles, they’ll look even better. For now, they’re sitting on my dining table with my hot-pink vintage busts and some ombre-painted pinecones.
