Italian Wine Light


Louis Dean and I were out in the gazebo this morning chatting about our weekend plans.
We are heading to Katy, Texas to visit Amber and Mike......
planning to leave in the WEE hours of Saturday morning and arriving shortly after breakfast time.
It will be so good to see them!! (AND the cats.......July and Snowball!)
That evening we will join them in attending a party in their neighborhood.
I told Louis Dean I would pick up a bottle of wine for a hostess gift.
HE suggested I make a wine light instead!
So I did!


Every one I make turns out slightly different!
I used a stick from a torn up grapevine wreath to push the light strand to the bottom of the bottle.
Then I decided to LEAVE the stick and add a few more!


Bringing a bottle of wine to a party is ALWAYS appreciated!
Hopefully they will enjoy this WINE LIGHT just as much!

A wine bottle is consumed, and gone.

A wine bottle light, goes on forever. :-) Precious idea.
