I really like these! I think it was really clever to wrap the bottles in twine like that!

These look great! 

I’m doing wine bottles for my centepieces as well!

 

Heres a tip! If you can’t find all blue wine bottles, you take take clear ones and dye them with glass dye from Michaels (or any other craft store). There are videos on youtube!

Good Work 🙂 and good luck with the rest of your DIY projects

These look great.  I love the polished casual but elegant look of the blue bottles and the contrast with the twine.  The ribbons and buttons are a great tie-in with the blue bottle.  I can see how they might be a little tall.  An idea of how to minimize height concerns:

I think if you only have the blue bottle as the tallest bottle (point: to have only one bottle at the tallest height), and then a medium and a short bottle (shorter than any pictured), you won’t need any flowers in the blue bottle.  you could put a few in the medium bottle, and you could make a wine bottle stopper with the table number to put in the short one. 

Or, put the wine stopper table number in the blue one (maybe glue house numbers to corks? house numbers wouldn’t obstruct the view from one side of the table to the other.)  Then you could put flowers in both the shorter bottles.  Or just put flowers in one of the shorter bottles and put a taper candle in the other. 

Either way, you can add more flowers/foliage/grains(like wheat) around the base of the bottles to make the centerpiece have a larger presence without adding height.

Also, if you are planning on choosing a wine to serve at the reception, you can combine the wine choosing with the bottle collecting.

To choose my wines, my friends and I are having dinner every 2 weeks at a restaurant that lets you BYOB. So everone brings a different wine in the right price range.  Then we all taste and give our feedback and I take notes.  Then I remove the wine label to put in my notebook so I’ll remember what the wine was.  That generates 4 or 5 bottles every 2 weeks, and we are getting closer to the right wine every time!

I think it’s great idea but you can cut the bottoms off and put tealight candles under them and that is beatiful. We’re gonna do this for our reception
