Wine Bottle Spoon Rest/Appetizer Dish

Wine Bottle Spoon Rest/Appetizer Dish

I have started to decorate my wine bottle spoon rests, even including an appetizer knife.   This gives a much better presentation and is a great gift for friends or family for the holidays.   It would also make a great host/hostess gift. 

The sides of the bottle are raised up to form a nice sized dish.  You can use if for so many things, like an appetizer dip, cheese and crackers, olives, carrots and celery and so much more…

My husband stole one of these to put misc. things in when he comes in the door from work.

I don’t have any on my website right now, because I have been so busy making them.  So, if you would like one, let me know and we can work out the details.

      I have just started playing with the fused bottle, an unfornuately I do not have a klin. I am paying a lady $8.00 ea to fused them… you have any suggestions? What kind of wire are you using for the hanger…..copper?

        Hi Jean,

        Have you looked for a used kiln? Either a ceramic kiln or a glass kiln? Try Craigslist. I got my first kiln at a garage sale.

        Yes, I use a heavy duty copper wire for the hanger.

    Hi Sammy,

    Thanks for the compliments! You must have figured it out – I slumped the wine bottle in my kiln and then added the knife, beads and raffia. 🙂

    Is there a way to do these spoonrest/apetizer dish without babysitting the kiln? What do you set the kiln to. I have only done ceramic tiles but these look so neat! Thank you

    Hi Jeannine,

    If you have a manual kiln, you will need to babysit the kiln and raise the temps. at the appropriate times. I have written an article, “How to Fuse a Wine Bottle” and it is available on my website at the following link:

    This should help you get started.

    Hi, I am looking for someone to make 6 slumped bottle trays out of a particular wine…I can supply the empty bottles. My question is can labels be kept on? I’d appreciate a quote if you know of someone that can take on the project. Thanks

    My daughter and I make these trays. I am a potter so I have the kiln equipment and she has the talent to decorate. She has paid for 1/2 of her M. Ed. courses with her talent.
