Wine Bottle Pendant Necklace


  • Wine bottle
  • Plastic bag
  • Hammer (optional)
  • Dremel
  • Sanding tools
  • Mod Podge
  • Scrapbook paper
  • Pencil
  • String
  • Various embellishments



  1. First, place a used, empty wine bottle in a plastic bag. Hold it by the neck of the bottle with the bag gathered around it. Either whack it directly onto concrete or use a hammer.
  2. Carefully open up the bag and look for a few pieces that look like a proper size and shape.
  3. Use your Dremel and sanding tools to smooth the edges.
  4. Select Mod Podge friendly scrapbook paper. Mod Podge (Plaid) sells double-sided scrapbook paper which is what I used for this project.
  5. Trace it to the size of your recycled glass piece.
  6. Apply Mod Podge to the back of your glass piece and apply the paper. Mod Podge over the exposed side of the paper.
  7. I used eco-friendly hemp string, Fusion glue and added some DIY jewelry accessories from Darice, which you can pick up at craft stores.
  8. Because I don’t have a diamond bit, I was unsuccessful drilling a hole in the recycled glass pendant so I wrapped the hemp around the top and bottom edges and added a dab of glue on the back side.

This is a cute idea for using ANY glass shards, so even people who think wine-drinkers are a sorry lot have other options. Even bottled waters come in lovely colored glass. The best part of shared ideas is that we can adapt them to our personal tastes - no judgement necessary. Thanks Cristin and FaveCrafts for sharing.

Having crafts that are made from old wine bottles makes a house look like old wine-o's live there. Where would you ever wear a necklace made from a wine bottle? A bar? Just wear a sign, "Wine-o"!
