10 Creative Ways to Upcycle Wine Barrels in the Yard

Wine barrels are the perfect shape for coffee and end tables. You can cut them whichever way works best and then patch them up to be solid. The style and material really adds a new depth to your outdoor space.

I would have never thought in a million years to turn a wine barrel into a fire pit. But it’s an amazing idea! It’s got a great support, and it’s big enough for a large fire.

Give ol’ Fido a nice place to sleep with a wine barrel dog bed. It looks so comfy and cozy. I also like how it enhances the space and acts like a decoration, not just a dog bed.

Wine barrels can be turned into about a dozen different planters. It’s really only limited by your creativity and how many wine barrels you have access to. I like the tiered one that has the different sections sticking out.

Yes, you can use wine barrels to make a gorgeous table. The barrels act as the legs to support a large and majestic wooden piece. This can be dressed up for a fancy event, or it can remain plain and still be impressive.

Cut up that old wine barrel and turn it into a practical ice chest for your outdoor events.  I love the full-circle feel: drinks being cooled in an old wine barrel. There’s something so special about that.

Honestly, your wine barrels don’t even have to have a practical purpose. You could strategically place them around the yard to act as décor. You could also spruce them up a bit, like turning them into a decorative water pump or water feature, but that’s not necessary.

If you’re really crafty, turn that wine barrel into a chandelier you can hang up! That’s right, it’s totally possible. It definitely requires some work, but you can do it.

Cut a slice of the wine barrel out and create some notches to store your wine. This can be used both inside and outside, actually. It’s a pretty classy way to keep your wine organized.

Wine barrels are prefect for making a sink. The empty space inside can be carved out for plumbing, and you can even add a door for storage space. I think a sink like this is simple but adds a lot to the patio or yard.
