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 would love to use the Kreg Jig to make smaller gifts such as the ones you’ve been posting lately. Just starting to expand my use of stain, too, so this could really add to the possibilities!

  8. Dawn Kennedy on December 10, 2014 at 6:19 am

    I love this wine holder. With this keg jig I really want to build the farm house table. I need this table really bad.

  9. Sarah McMillen on December 10, 2014 at 5:36 am

    Love it! My husband and I just purchased a new house and I have a long list of your furniture projects that I want to make for our new place. The kreg jig would make it sooo much easier to do the projects on my list.

  12. Cara on December 10, 2014 at 3:24 am

    I have wanted a Kreg jig ever since I discovered your blog and all the fantastic projects you design. I think the first thing I would make with it would be the blanket ladder 🙂

  13. Robert S. Lawrie on December 9, 2014 at 11:06 pm

    Since finding your site my list has grown ten fold. You both are a tremendous source of inspiration and empowerment. Thank you for all you both have done.
