When the weather starts cooling down, nothing sounds better than getting wrapped up in a cozy blanket on the couch and diving into a deep Netflix binge with a glass of wine. Between nights in, holiday parties, and drinking away the pain of work getting more stressful at the end of the year, I go through a fair amount of wine. (Probably too much but hey, let a girl live).

I love Fall for so many reasons but mainly because it really kicks off the holiday party scene. (More parties mean more wine. Sensing a trend here?) Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years are some of the biggest party holidays each year so why not put all those empty glass bottles to good use? Instead of dwelling on how much you're drinking, gather up those empties and try some of these DIY wine bottle craft ideas to prepare yourself for the holiday season.

Tiki Torches

Here in Texas it doesn't get below 60 until December so take advantage of the weather and turn some old wine bottles into these tiki torches to set a mood for your outdoor gatherings.

Batch Cocktails

Whenever I host a party I feel like the entire fridge gets taken over by booze and mixers. It's a total mess. With so many fun seasonal flavors to take advantage of (hello apple cider), set a theme for your guests and create mixers or batch cocktails to have ready to go. And having them ready to go in wine bottles makes it look way classier.

Holiday Lights

This DIY wine bottle might be one of the easiest craft ideas out there. Take your favorite seasonal string lights and put them inside an empty bottle. This is a fun, decorative accent for any holiday to jazz up your entryway or tablescape.

Flattened Wine Bottle

I have to say, as a self diagnosed wine and cheese night addict, this one might be my favorite wine bottle craft idea. Despite frequently enjoying this combination, I always find I never have enough serving trays. Try this out for your next date night (I know I am).

Chalkboard Paint

I love that chalk gives you a few tries to get things right. Try this cute and easy DIY craft and update the words for each season.

Tablescapes can obviously apply to each holiday but how fun is this DIY project for Halloween? Use your favorite dark spray paint and candle combination and voila, you have a spooky tablescape that will be sure to impress family and friends.

Holiday parties mean more people to serve. Instead of spending money on extra glassware, make this wine bottle project to have some extra tumblers on hand. No one will go thirsty at your next dinner party (Your friends will thank you).

Candle Holders

Something about lit candles makes me feel like it's the holidays. It just creates a cozy ambiance like a lit fire and elevates any home. This is an easy and creative way to upgrade your home decor.

Food Storage Containers

I'm all about more food storage, especially if it looks cute on the countertop. Fill these with seasonal nuts or olive oil and enjoy the extra storage.

Herb Garden

During the holidays I always find myself cooking way more. Take it to the next level with fresh ingredients from your own herb garden. This self-watering planter will make it easy to maintain well past the holiday season.

Kitchy Characters

If pumpkin carving is a bit too challenging for you (it is way harder than it looks -- Halloween commercials are liars), try making a jack-o-lantern bottle instead. It won't go bad and you can reuse them each year as a seasonal touch to your home decor.

Soap Dispenser

One thing I never remember to do is stock up on basic necessities to prepare for guests. Skip the designer soap and create your own holder that you can refill over time with hand or dish soap.

Wine Bottle Vase

This doesn't require much effort but I'm a big fan of floral arrangements during the holidays. Decorate your bottle with spray paint or just remove the label for a simple vase. Let the flowers do the talking.

Wine Bottle Candles

I'm not ashamed to admit I spend a lot of money on candles during the holidays. Get crafty and create your own candles with your favorite holiday scents.
