I say go for it! I used pale blue wine bottles and blue mason jars. I don’t have my pro pics back, but if you look really close you might be able to see the tiny gold horse shoes on each bottle. I used thin blue thread to string them. We had alot of horse shoes because my husband is a farrier (horse shoer) and I am horse vet. Anyway, I thought they turned out greatLaughing. Plus then I got more money to spend on tons of beautiful flowers, which is the important part anyway IMO.  @Jacquelinesc84:

I agree it will just look like glass containers, not alcoholic beverages. Lots of stuff goes into glass containers

@Jacquelinesc84:  We used spray painted wine bottles as our centerpieces. They were fairly easy and everyone LOVED how they turned out!

These were my DIY wine bottle centrepieces and I think they looked fine! I think once you paint them all up and stuff they’ll just look like part of the decor…not specifically remind people that there was wine in them before.

We’re in the process of painting the inside of the wine bottles. My mom bought some candlebras that go on top of them, so we’ll have lit candles on top of the wine bottles (they’re going to have sand in them to weigh them down). You can’t even tell they are wine bottles.

@Jacquelinesc84:  If you’re worried about how it will be received, do you have access to pop or water bottles? They are usually a distinct size and shape- not to be confused with alcohol bottles.
