Awesome idea for used wine bottles.Use bottles, soda bottles, beer bottles, or wine bottles. Cover a part of a bottle in red paper. Spray paint everything else white and cover the red with stripes of white, and turn it into letters.
kraft + red I've done this two Christmases so far. Christmas 2012 was kraft paper with red/white polka dot paper wrapping. Christmas 2009 or 2010 was kraft paper with red/white polka dots and vintage dictionary pages.
Panes or no panes, I love window frames! I love the idea of using old window frames, doors, and shutters to display various things. You can place them above mantels or just hang them from the wall for a rustic statement.
