Good News Notes:
“DIY-ing your home decor is not only a fun project, but it also makes for a great conversation piece. You get to show off your creativity and crafting skills while also making something you can enjoy in your home. And now, you can make a DIY wine rack using upcycled materials.
Upcycling is the process of recycling an item that can be made into a more valuable product. It takes something old, whether that be old textiles, plastic bottles, or even leftover wood, and creates something totally new. Plus, upcycling reduces landfill waste, eliminates the need for new, natural materials, and decreases carbon emissions. So upcycling creates something with the planet in mind.
If you’re looking to avoid buying into fast furniture, and you’re in need of a new wine rack, try upcycling materials you may have never thought to use. Here are a few ways you can make your DIY wine rack come to life—no major tools needed.
7 Upcycled DIY Wine Racks
If you’re not sure what to do with leftover PVC pipes, turn them into a DIY wine rack! PVC pipes are usually used for plumbing, so it may be hard to believe they can be transformed into this geometric wine rack.

This could be an old belt, or you can get creative with rope, ribbon, or twine. To give the piece a new look, paint the pipes any colors you’d like!
2. Wine Tote Plant Hanger
Those hanging plant holders don’t have to hold your leafy friends. Instead, you can use the plant holder as a wine tote!
Turn your trash into treasure by crafting a wine rack out of old cans that could end up in the landfill. Save cans wide enough to hold a wine bottle. Then, peel off the labels, clean them up, and give them a fresh coat of any colored paint you’d like. You can arrange the cans in any shape using as many cans as you want for this creation….”
