Oh hey friends!  It’s almost New Year’s and we have a super fun and easy project for you – the DIY Wine Caddy!  This would be great to tote along to your New Year’s party!  You can see our how-to video on our YouTube Channel HERE!  

Check out our DIY Wine Caddy…

How cute?!

This is a really fun and simple build guys.  You can download and print the FREE PLANS by clicking HERE!

First step is making your cuts.  We made all of our cuts using a miter saw.  You can see the cuts for the 1×4 here.

After making your cuts, clamp the two long pieces together, and drill a hole at the top of these boards.  You will put rope here later.

Next, we attached our small short pieces to our long base using wood glue and 1.25″ brad nails through the base piece and into the small side pieces.  Add glue to one side of each small piece first.

We used our Ryobi 18V brad nailer to attach the side pieces like this.

Now your caddy should look like this!

Next, we attached our longer boards with holes.  We did this using wood glue and brad nails as well.  You can see they are all spaced evenly on the bottom board.

Now it’s time to add the long side pieces.  These are made using craft boards and they are important because they will hold in your wine! 😉

We attached these using wood glue and brad nails as well.

Final step was adding stain, rope and hardware.  We stained our caddy Briarsmoke by Varathane, and we spray painted hardware and attached them to the caddy using our drill.  We used these corner pieces from Home Depot.

That’s it guys!  Told you it was simple… And oh so shanty! 🙂
