Repelling bugs and chasing away mosquitos is an essential for any outdoor summer party. Sometimes, however, it is not pretty. From smelly bug sprays to gaudy tiki torches and candles, sometimes battling bugs means sacrificing your style. Fortunately, we have the perfect wine bottle craft idea to battle this sunshine problem. Instead of unattractive store-bought options, make the Citronella Wine Bottle crafts and add chic designs to your bug-avoidance this summer. Made with glass crafting marbles, this DIY craft is easily converted to just about any color scheme.

This is such a genius idea! My friends and I never fail to pack bug spray for our impromptu outside summer hangs. One thing we definitely never forget are wine bottles. This would be a cute little craft to set up in the future. Thanks!

This is exactly what I need at home. I have been having problems with mosquitoes and bugs. I want to avoid using bug sprays since it could be harmful to our health. This citronella wine bottle will definitely be helpful.

What a creative take on bug repelling items. This will be great to use during outdoor parties and it doubles as a cute decoration. Love it!

Oh wow. I really need these here in South Florida, especially living next to the Everglades. We have all sorts of bugs year round. I have an endless supply of wine bottles, and these would look so pretty on our tables around the pool when we entertain. Do these really work to repel the pests? Has anyone tried this yet?

I'm loving this idea, especially at this time of the year where I live. South Africa. It is so hot this time of the year and we always have a problem with what we call "Christmas beetles". I'm going to make some of these as Christmas gifts as well as use them myself outdoors as that is where we spend most of our time at this time of the year.

I think this is such a great idea! this looks so much classier than just those regular bug lights! I love this!

These are quite lovely. I have old glass marbles left over from various fish bowls which would be perfect for this project. We have a large deck and quite a few cedars and our backyard gets quite buggy. #BestIdeaEver.

This is so cute and so easy. I have wine bottles and old mason jars to use too. #Bestideaever

#BestIdeaEver - Love this use of empty wine bottles. They will look great on the deck on a summer evening.

#Best idea ever! What a great way to show off those beautiful wine bottles.

What a great way to put those old wine bottles to use and keep away the 'squitos at the next warm weather get-together! #BestIdeaEver
