K-J Bottles Repurposed as Tiki Torches

We’re all about reducing, reusing & recycling. We also love the idea of upcycling: creating something useful/pretty/helpful/interesting from something that would usually be thrown in the trash or recycle bin. Our fan Terri D. enjoyed six bottles of K-J Vintner’s Reserve Chardonnay and instead of recycling the bottles (a noble action in itself), she upcycled them into tiki torches!

Terri says: “Repurposing my KJ bottles! Filled bottle with tiki torch fluid or kerosene, marbles in the bottom, wick, copper fitting on the top so the wick doesn’t fall in. The chain has a copper cap so the wick doesn’t get wet in the rain. We have 6 around our deck.”
