Best Wine Glass Decorating Ideas

Don't know what to do with your old wine glasses? Consider trying out any of these creative wine glass decorating ideas to deck out your living space!

Wine glasses are the best simply because they can be used to enjoy my favorite beverage in the world. It's wine, by the way, and wine cocktails. But wine glasses can actually be used for so many other things rather than for drinking. And there are a lot of people out there who get creative with wine glasses. When they come across a new set of wine glasses, what do they do with the old set? Some people toss them out (always recycle though!), give them away to someone in need of wine glasses, or...

They use them to decorate their tables or living space! I know, it's pretty hard to picture what to do with wine glasses, but if you put your mind to it, your wine glasses can turn into stunning decorations. The glasses can be used as a form of pottery for plants, centerpieces on dinner tables, and even dessert stands believe it or not! So, if you have wine glasses laying around the kitchen that you don't use anymore, use them as decoration! Check out these brilliant wine glass decorating ideas to give your living space a touch of artistry.
