All you actually need to make this wine bottle garden is a a bottle, glass cutter, some corks, and, of course, the flowers/stones for decoration. What kind of flowers, stones, or decoration you should choose to make your garden entirely depends on your personal taste. The only tricky part of this project is going to be the glass cutting which has to be done with great care. Perhaps, it is better to have this done by a professional. But once this part is done, you fill up your bottle with plants and start to decorate your own little garden.
5) Skateboard Swing
