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?

    I love this wine bottle holder! So super cute, and super chic 🙂
    I think I would make one of these for each of the ladies in our wine group, totally need the kreg jig though. The first project with the Kreg jig would have to be the hall tree that you have on here. I LOVE IT!!

    We bought a fixer upper this year—Now that we finally got the painting completed, I would love a kreg jig to get started on all of the furniture I plan to make from your awesome tutorials 🙂

  11. Renae Johansen on December 9, 2014 at 2:39 pm

    My next project is a dresser for my son’s room. The Kreg System would be so helpful!
