Whether or not an empty wine bottle is transparent, it can make a great bottle light! Mark where you want the holes to be with some masking tape, drill, rinse the bottle, then stuff Christmas lights through the holes you drilled. (via Wit and Whistle)
(image) What a great idea for the kids / grandkids! Perfect DIY project & recycle those used / broken crayon pieces, too. Would make for a great party favor, gift for Valentine's Day (or other occasions) or gift from Teacher to Students! Love it!
