I wanted a cute idea for a teachers’ gift for this year. My sons are both in preschool and I LOVE their school. I decided to make their teachers wine bottle plant waterers. These were fun and easy to make!
How to Make Wine Bottle Plant Waterers
Clean and remove the labels on your wine bottles. Once done, you need to cut your wine bottles. Check out my tutorial for easy wine bottle cutting.
Sand the edges of the bottle. This is fairly simple and works very well. I tried adding tape around the tops on top of sanding, but it was overkill and unnecessary. And hard to do. And ugly.
Use transfer paper to add your Silhouette design.
And boy does it smell heavenly!
I intended to attach a chalkboard marker with a string to this, but then forgot the markers when we left for school. Because I was late due to crafting… of course. But this would be a cute idea for someone more organized than I am!
