Vintage Bottle Stoppers

 Hi Friends,

This past week I was slowed down by an

extreme case of VERTIGO !

If you have experienced it , you know what I mean.

Now I can get back on the computer-

I'm trying to get ready for a craft show in a couple days.

So last minute I put together some 

Bottle Stoppers and I thought I would share

them with you!

I get so excited, sometimes I forget to take pictures.

It started with this stopper -

The top was easy to remove.

Some needed to have a screw cut to attach the knife handle

and some stoppers have a post.

I prefer the stoppers with a post.

and a knife

It is easy to find knives at thrift shops.

The knives are usually inexpensive.

I use a vise and a soft cloth to hold in place while I cut.

I used a Dremel tool to cut and sand the ruff edges.

Making sure the top is level.

The handles were a tight fit on the screw and the post,  no other

fixative was needed.

Then I polished the handles.

The stoppers can be used on an  olive oil bottle-

They can fit a wine bottle or in my case sparkling cider!

Just pretty for a party or wedding.

I think these would make a nice gift.

I used more knife handles on this blog post-


Have a great day!

Thanks for the visit.

  3. Beautiful idea and pieces! Vertigo is the worst. I get it every so often so I can sympathize. I’m glad your feeling better. Hugs,

  4. What a creative way to recycle the handles of flatware knives. The antique silver patterns are so graceful and lovely.

    1. Carol, Thank you so much!
      I like that my bottle looks fancy. My mom will be getting one for Mother's Day ;)

  6. I suffer from vertigo, so I know what you were going through - no fun! These bottle stoppers are fantastic...can I ask what Dremel blade you used to cut them?

    1. Hi Ann,
      I'm sorry you get vertigo too- it's so unsettling- literally ! I get concerned about driving so I wait it out for days!
      I'm so glad you like the bottle stoppers. I used a blade called EZ 456 1 1/2''. I'm sure there is probably a better one to use for jewelry, but this blade cuts all metals.
