DIY Wine Racks

If you find yourself with more than a few wine bottles from time to time and you want an easy, clever solution to store them, here's a couple DIY ideas you could try!

Cans from

So easy it's brilliant! You must cut the tops and bottom out of the can first, then you can paint it any color of which you desire. Then glue them together in a pyramid shape and boom: instant wine rack

Mailing Tube

Here's what you'll need for this one: mailing tube (sturdy one, made of about 1/8″ thick cardboard; 24″ long), a hot glue gun, neon/colored duct tape, scissors, a scrap of felt (about 12″ x 20″), an exacto knife/box cutter, spray adhesive, a pen, a ruler, and preferably a cutting mat. Cut the tube in half lengthwise, and then width wise so that in the end you have four equal curved pieces that are ~12" in length. Then tape the sides and edges together width wise. After this, simply cut the felt down to size and use spray adhesive to stick it down, smoothing out any wrinkles along the way.

PVC Pipe

This idea comes with options for customizing, depending on if you want to do only one size that will fit wine bottles in a simple pyramid shape, or if you want to offset these with some smaller sizes interspersed. Basically, you'll need to trim or have the pipe trimmed down to about 6" or so, and you'll probably want ones that are about 4". They can then be attached by using some screws and epoxy, however it does require some drilling for the screw holes. The result however is a simple and elegant solution to your wine needs!
