Here at Rustic Wedding Chic, we love the idea of repurposing random objects into unique rustic wedding decorations for your wedding – it’s like the cornerstone of rustic weddings! Today’s object of transformation is none other than the wine bottle. Wine bottles come in so many shapes and sizes, which makes them extremely versatile. There is no end to what you can do with them! Take a look at 15 of my favorite ways to incorporate wine bottles into your wedding decor. Check out our entire wedding DIY ideas section for more ideas like this!
