Mosaic art is a great way to make the most out of recycled goods. The project takes work, but is definitely worth it. First, collect the broken pieces of glass or other materials you want to incorporate in your project. It's important for all of the pieces to be around the same size. Sketch out a design you want to follow on the wine bottle. Start gluing the pieces on the bottle, but make sure to leave room for the grout. After you apply grout and let sit for a few hours, make sure to wipe off with a damp cloth.
