DIY Wine Bottle Holder

Hey there! We are already at day 9 in our 12 Days of Christmas Series and I have a really fun and easy DIY Christmas Gift to share with you today!12DaysCOUNTER9

We love a good wine bottle holder and we have created a few hanging versions in the past! I thought this Table Top Wine Holder was in order 😉
DIY-Wooden-Wine-Bottle-HolderI created this one with scraps but if you don’t have scraps, it will still be super inexpensive to make your own!

Here’s how I did it!


wine-holder-center-boardI started with a 1×12 that I cut at 11 1/4″ and marked a diagonal line from one corner to another.

cut-with-jigsawThen, I used my 18V Jigsaw to cut along the line creating two triangle pieces.

wine-holder-base-and-top-piecesNext, I cut two 1×4 boards at 19 1/2″ and cut one end of one of the boards at a 45°.

wine-holder-piecesHere are the three pieces you need for the holder.

drill-pocket-holes-in-middleNow, drill three 1 1/4″ pocket holes on one of the 90° sides and then on the diagonal side.

wine-holder-pocket-holesYou can see where I drilled the pocket holes in the picture above.

ryobi-forstner-setNext, I used a 1 3/8″ Forstner Bit

drill-holes-for-wine-bottlesand drilled three holes in the mitered 1×4 board. I started on the end with the miter cut and drilled a hole at 4 1/2″, 10 1/2″ and 16 1/2″.

Rustoleum_Dark_Walnut-500x750Before I assembled it, I applied one coat of Rust-Oleum Dark Walnut stain on all of the pieces. I just wiped it on with a clean cloth, waited 5 minutes then blended the stain with a new clean cloth.

attach-baseNow to assembled! I attached the triangle piece to the other 1×4 (the one without the holes) with 1 1/4″ pocket hole screws. I placed it 3.5″ from the end.

back-of-wine-holderNext, I attached the remaining 1×4, the same way.

bottle-holder-flushThe back of the triangle piece should be flush with one side of the 1×4’s.

distress-edges-of-bottle-holderFinally, I roughed it up a bit with my Corner Cat Sander with an 80-grit pad!

DIY-Table-Top-Wine-HolderThat’s it! Just add your favorite bottles of wine and it makes a great table topper 🙂



DIY-Wine-Bottle-HolderThis one’s for me but I may have to throw one together for a gift exchange! Want to make one for yourself? Do you have someone in mind that would LOVE it?

  17. Tyson Moore on December 9, 2014 at 10:43 am

    I have long desired to grow in my DIY skills and have just recently heard of the Kreg jig. I am so excited about this! I build wooden instruments called “cajons” and would love to tweak my design to be more professional and include the benefits of what this giveaway includes! I also have recently tried to build my 2 little girls an infant sized bunk bed and would love to have known about this so that screws would be hidden! Thank you for the opportunity!

  18. Heather Lefler Clarke on December 9, 2014 at 10:41 am

    My husband and I have been wanting to buy one of these. We are in the process of starting to finish our basement. We would use it to make all our kids furniture with it and a few other must need items in our home. Thank you & Merry Christmas!

  19. Amyhb on December 9, 2014 at 10:36 am

    I really need to build a dresser for my daughters room.

  20. Amanda Funes on December 9, 2014 at 10:35 am

    I am totally crazy about your website! I have already made the chalkboard mail and key holder and the blanket ladder. If I had the Kreg kit I would make desks, beds, tv stands, and anything else you have on here!
