On a cold rainy weekend afternoon, there’s just nothing better than sitting down with a project and sipping a glass of wine.

Wine bottle crafts are a great way to spice up your home décor. Both the bottle and the corks are great for recycled crafting, and you’ll love all the fun wine bottle craft ideas we have for you in Trash to Treasure: 28 Recycled Crafts.

The start of the New Year and the coming of spring means it’s time to start going through all your old clothes and purging yourself of items you no longer wear.
