Day 169: Wine Bottle Glasses DIY

A pretty cool trick for reusing old wine bottles.

  1. Wrap yarn around the top of the bottle about 3 or 4 times (as shown) and tie a knot.
  2. Take it off and soak the yarn in nail polish remover.
  3. Rewrap the string.
  4. Light the soaked yarn on fire CAREFULLY!
  5. Burn for about 30 seconds while rotating the bottle slowly to heat the glass evenly.
  6. When the flame starts to die, put the top half into cool water and the top should POP off. (be careful of glass and sharp edges)
  7. Sand to remove any rough edges your mouth may encounter.
  8. Enjoy!
