I wrote yesterday about glass jars (and bottles) and how glass NEVER degrades in the landfill.
I’ve been dreaming of a wine bottle project ever since I heard about cutting glass bottles with a piece of string and some acetone (or lighter fluid). You can make vases or drinking glasses once you cut the top off of the glass. After doing a little research I got too scared to actually try it myself. I read that the string method doesn’t always give you a smooth finish and that you should really use a glass cutting tool.
Instead I too myself back to my college days and decided to get a little romantic with my empty wine bottle and a candle. Simply place a tall candle into a clean wine bottle and watch the magic begin. As the candle burns the wax drips down the candle and onto the bottle creating a very romantic look.
The romantic candle wine bottle looks nice displayed on a mantle or desk.
This post is part of the Upcycled Crafting Challenge (#freefromtrash) that I’m hosting this month. It’s part of a one month challenge to create from trash. This challenge will hopefully open your eyes to the number of items that we still end up trashing every day that could be used by ourselves or our kids to create fun and useful items.
