but how do you cut the glass??
SO COOL- Glass cutting with only yarn and fingernail polish remover- Here is what you do: -wrap the cotton yarn around your bottle 5-6 times, tie and cut ends. -slide yarn off of the bottle -dip in nail polish remover -slide the wet yarn back onto the bottle---NOTE---the bottle will be cut at whatever angle you have the yarn at, so if you are interested in doing a sideways cut just adjust your yarn -light on fire ****please please be careful**** -only the wet yarn will be lit on fire and the flame is very well controlled -rotate bottle in circles as the yarn is on fire for about 20 seconds so that all parts of the bottle warm evenly -submerge in cold water and watch the bottle parts separate -use sand paper to smooth rough edges
A website that is filled with cool ideas for old wine bottles.
Called local glass place to ask of they could do this for me - she told me to just go online and buy a small glass cutter and Xtra fine grit sandpaper and do it myself. Just cut bottom off of bottle and sand edges! Use goo gone to remove label from bottles!.....I Better get to drinking so I have some bottles to use ;)
