How to make a balancing wine holder using wood and some wood working tools.
I won’t lie. This was sort of my, “I have this wood and need to do another one of these gift posts so let’s just combine the two” half-@$$ projects. It was the VERY last 30 day grab & go gift series video that I was filming and I was exhausted. So we started to cut the wood. The edge got screwed up a bit. Ugh. I was irritated and thinking this would be junk. But I persevered. Painted it. Hated the color. Wiped the paint… then… OH! OHHHHH! It looks like a tree now! I LOVE IT! Haha… so I rolled with the tree theme and made this a fun Fall themed wine holder. I am SO glad I did. The end result is super cute.
The funniest part of this project was going to the local park to find acorns. I thought this would be a fun project with the kids because “Yay! Nature hunt!”
All I have to say is this. People. Pick up after your dogs. Because it’s apparently very difficult for an almost 3 year old to tell the difference between a pine cone and aged dog poop. LOL!
Supplies listed below may include affiliate links to the products.
- Pure Bond: The wood cut is 3.5×10″

- Sand paper or a sander
- Fall Leaves and Acorns (from the ground)
- Old Fashioned Milk Paint, Driftwood and a wet rag
- Optional: Wood burning kit, Carving kit
How to Build a Balancing Wine Holder
Cut the edges of your wood with a miter saw.
Drill your hole with a spade bit.
Test to make sure the wine bottle holder can balance the wine bottle properly. Then paint. Let dry.
This part made me giggle. I used a carving knife to carve this, then I went over it with my wood burner.
Here’s the more detailed tutorial, in video format.
