  • I have a few in my kitchen window. Around the necks I tied on with twine some south american christmas decorations, they are metal and brightly colored: a pig, a goat, a bird, a butterfly, and a dancing lady.

  • You can use them as vases or you can even decorate them with flat colored beads so they can give out different colors with put close to the light. I have many bottles in my kitchen and my sewing room so I tend to use them for everything and I decorate them as well. If you have any clear bottles, you can also stain them from the inside with glass paint. Hope this helps.

  • This past holiday season, my husband and I saw white Christmas lights inside the bottles and they lopked awesome. He said they drilled a hole in the bottom of the bottle and put the lights in that way, and just corked it.

  • I use mine as a candle holder for the long tapered candles. As the colored candles melt it leaves cool wax drippings down the sides and creates interesting designs.

  • You can decorate your bottles by gluing on beads, ribbon, twine and dryed flowers, put colored glass rocks in. Go to craft store and ask them about ideas.
