Don’t worry if there are stickers all over them. If you use a hairdryer you’ll get them off easily. If you have a  Heat craft tool, it will be even easier. Then, if you feel they are still sticky, just sand with a fine grit sandpaper.

Make holes in the top corners of the wine crates and screw them to the wall. Chances are you won’t be in line with the wall studs so you’ll need to use wall anchors.
