5. Wine Bottle Vases
This one is for all you wine lovers out there! These wine bottle vases are great because they are inexpensive to make, especially if you have old bottles lying around your house. You can spray paint the bottles whatever color you want to match your venue or keep them just the way they are for a more vintage feel. This centerpiece is very versatile; you can cluster the glasses in the center of a round table or line them down the middle of a long table, whichever you decide!
