The past few months have been the most trying and difficult months of my life, and while I can’t go into great detail, I will say I still have a long and bumpy road ahead. So with that being said, I must admit I have recently acquired a new-found love for wine! No, I haven’t become an alcoholic, and I’m not spending my days drinking my woes away, but I have discovered that a small glass of wine after a long and stressful day can be most delightful. From chardonnays to pino noirs, there’s a whole new world for the new wine lover to explore, and then there’s the ever so perplexing dilemma- what to do with the empty wine bottle?
Sure, the simple solution would be to toss the empty wine bottle in the recycle bin, but being the eco-crazy mom I am, I just couldn’t do it. Wine bottles are so pretty, and so elegant, I knew there had to be a better way!
After a quick search online my head was spinning with possibilities, take this infographic by dARKASHADE for example …
Such amazing ideas, however most a bit more time consuming than I have to spare.
Then, I came across a most genius solution- one that would save time, not take time, and requires absolutely no work at all…
The Upcycled Wine Bottle Plant Nanny!
The picture says it all: Simply fill wine bottle with water, stick it in a flower pot and voila- a plant nanny!
I am so bad about remembering to water our house plants, the wine bottle plant nanny is the perfect solution. At first I thought it might look a bit odd having all of our plants adorned with wine bottles, but it’s actually been quite the conversation starter, and everyone loves it!
