Painting on Wine Bottles??

I have been passing my time for awhile on different mediums. I love to paint on canvas and use charcoal, but lately I have been finding use for wine bottles and I have been doing this before I knew this was a trend on Pintrest. Ive been using acrylics on empty wine bottles and it is such a release for me. I am trying to figure out if there is a market for my wine bottle paintings. I think they are pretty and not too bad if I say so myself, but not professional. If you were to purchase a hand painted wine bottle what would you do with it?

Things like that are best sold on flea markets or Christmas markets. Have you got anything like that where you live? People can put the bottles on the window sill just like that or use them as candle holders on a table. If you sell them you should offer them together with (coloured) candles.

@Castlerock34 After the Chrisrmas markets this year you'll know the answer if people really like the bottles. Maybe you could also paint some Christmas/winter motifs.

@Castlerock34 You cut off the bottom to put the votive on the inside and the top to let the air escape. It leaves a nice flickering behind any negative points left on the bottle that isn't painted.
