This idea came about when I was helping my niece with her wedding decorations.  She had a ton of wine bottles saved hopping she could use them somehow.  She bought plastic LED wine cork string lights to go in some of the clear bottles.  Then we wrapped some of the dark glass bottles with jute rope and crackle painted some.  For the base, I went to Lowes and purchased a piece of 4' 8' drywall and cut it up in 1' squares and then we covered them with tissue paper and painted over them.  We had enough bottles to do 20 tables and it turned out so beautifully!

She pointed out that she didn't like the plain cheap look of the LED wine corks.  So, I came up with the idea of covering them to look more like a real cork.  I made up some labels and wrapped them and then cut slivers of wine corks and glued them to the tops.  I now sell these on Etsy at a reasonable price.  You can also go to www.corklights.com.
