Terracotta is like the kid who came back after middle school summer break as a whole new person. All of a sudden, (she's?) it's everywhere, looking good, and you’re loving it. Or maybe I should just speak for myself here? Totally not weird or anything...
Either way, these DIY terracotta wine chillers are bound to impress. They’re inexpensive to make, easy-peasy to customize, and have a hidden talent: terracotta just so happens to hold temperature. You can use it the same way you would use a marble wine chiller or ice bucket. Can we say double win? Science, you guys, it’s a beautiful DIY thing…
"Dipped" Terracotta Wine Chillers
Because I’m a big fan of the “double the fun” motto, I used two terracotta planters for this project—one as an ice bucket (unglazed terracotta is food safe!), and one as a wine chiller.
To add a little color punch, tape off an even line with painter’s tape about a third of the way up the pot. Then, using a foam brush, paint the color of your choice onto each planter.
Allow them to dry, then remove the tape—it's that easy! Plus you can always use them as actual planters if you decide you've had enough rosé this summer (so, never?).
