DIY ... or not

Tuesday I caught some DIY show on HGTV, and the topic was creating things with old wine bottles. A pretty useful topic, I thought, considering I've got dozens of bottles (I've never thrown one away) collecting dust on the my top bookshelf.

But then I saw that the things the host made (a table — Relax Riesling bottles as legs — and a candelabrum made of wine and beer bottles) were awfully tacky, and I got a little discouraged.

About the only thing I can think to do is smash them up and use the glass to make mosaic tiles on something. But I'd kind of like to keep the labels intact and incorporate them into something too.

So, what do you do with old wine bottles?

at Click's house they buried them about half way in dirt (top down) around the border of a flower garden. it looked really nice.
