Valentine’s Day is synonymous with roses, chocolate and wine. Using left over wine bottles as vases or decorative elements goes along with the romantic and festive nature of the holiday – plus it’s a great reason to drink the wine!

Today’s project uses wine bottles to make Valentine’s gifts for friends or a love-themed centerpiece for dinner with your someone special for less than $4 total. It's a fast and simple idea that is perfect for the holiday. Spread a little love for less this Valentine’s Day!


Begin by cleaning the wine bottles. Tip: Remove the labels easily by adding 1 cup baking soda and some dish detergent to the kitchen sink full of HOT water. Allow the bottles to soak for 20 minutes or so and the labels literally peel off with no problem.


  • 4 or more wine bottles
  • Red or pink spray paint – $3
  • 1 small white acrylic paing – 50 cents
  • Paint brush
  • Stencil (unless you want to letter yourself)

How to:

Begin by spray painting the bottles and allowing the paint to dry. I painted two coats to make the bottles extra shiny. You may use any color combination you want so you could choose pink, white, red, silver, gold – the color scheme is where you can be creative.


Once the bottles are dry, stencil them with the white acrylic paint. I chose the word LOVE and painted hearts. Choose any word or name you’d like and also any stencil or pattern with the hearts and/or decoration.

Display the Wine Bottle DIY product may be used for flowers, decorative sticks or by arranging them by themselves along a table for the centerpiece. Happy Valentine’s Day!
