Materials

  • Empty wine bottle with cork
  • Clear mini light strand, 20-count
  • Artificial grape bunch
  • Burgundy satin ribbon, 5/8”, 36” length
  • Gold wire, 18-gauge, 36” length

Tools

  • Electrical tape

Basic Supplies

scissors

Directions

STEP 1

  • Insert lights into clean, dry bottle. Run plug end of cord down bottle neck; tape on back. (Note: Make sure length of cord will reach electrical outlet.)

STEP 2

  • Wrap 18-gauge wire around bottle lip four times. Wrap tape over wire to secure to bottle.

STEP 3

  • Wrap ribbon over taped area. Catch grape stem in ribbon to secure to bottle; knot and trim ends.

STEP 4

  • Wrap remaining wire end around cork four times. Spiral wire off to one side of bottle and bend to create popping cork effect.

STEP 5

  • Plug in lights. (Note: Do not leave wine bottle light unattended.)

Tip

  • 1. To create as a centerpiece, use a battery-operated LED light strand (with small battery box) instead of plug-in lights. Conceal battery box underneath grapes.
