Have some empty wine bottles kicking around? Don’t toss them! You can turn them into a hanging wine bottle vase! You can also do this with other bottles such as beer bottles.
Hanging Wine Bottle Vase
This is a pretty easy project. The main things you need to make this hanging wine bottle vase is a clean empty bottle and some string.
While you could pretty much use any string or yarn, I used this Natural Cotton twine for mine.
A few other things that are handy to have when making this (but can be made without them) is some heavy-duty tape and a fluted cake pan. These things just make it a little easier to work with the string on the bottle.

- Fluted cake pan (optional)
- Tape (optional)
- Small Crochet Hook (optional)
- Twine (used cotton butchers twine)
- Clean Wine Bottle
- Large Ring (like a key ring)
How To Make This Hanging Bottle:
Next, you want to cut eight 80 inch pieces of twine.
Then gather each of those cut pieces of twine at one end. Try and have them all evenly gathered together. Tie them in a knot.
Now place the bottle upside down in a fluted cake pan or another like object. I used an angel food cake pan, but a bundt pan would also work.
Place the knot of the twine on the bottom of the bottle. Then tape it in place. Move the strings so there are four strains of twine hanging on each side.
Next, straighten the twine so they are spread out around the bottle. Gather two pieces of twine that are laying by each other, knot them together about 1 inch down the side of the bottle.
Repeat that step with the other twine until you have 4 knots hanging on the sides of the bottle.
Now we need to start working around way around and down the bottle. Grab one string from one knot on the left and a string from a knot on the right. Tie them together making another knot. You should start seeing the net look taking shape.
Keep repeating that step working your way around the bottle. After you have finished one row all the way around the bottle, move down to the next row doing the same thing to cover the whole bottle in netting.
Finishing The String & Adding The Ring:
To finish off the knots, you will stop when you get to the part of the bottle where it starts to narrow.
Now we can remove the bottle from the pan. Turn the bottle over or on its side. Pull all four knotted sections of string evenly together. Making sure they are even is important as we don’t want the bottle to be lopsided. Tie them in a knot about 3-4 inches from the end of the bottle.
The next thing we need to do is slide about 3 inches up from that knot loop the twine through the ring and tie in a knot.
Now cut the rest of the loose twine off at the same length of twine that is left from the knot.
To finish off the twine you want to take a loose piece of twine and tie it tightly around the loose ends from the knot and the ones you just cut.
Then start wrapping that tied twine around the loose ends working your way down to the first knot in the twine. When you get to the first knot tie it off tight.
You can either just clip off the rest of the twine and leave as is. Or hide it as I have done. To hide it I pulled it back under those wrapped pieces using a small crochet hook.
Now simply hang it from a hook in front of a window, on a patio, or anywhere else you would like a hanging vase to be. You can display as is or put some real or fake flowers in it.
