Bottle cutting is a greet way to recycle bottles.

Next time you bring a fancy wine bottle from abroad, don't throw it away when the wine is gone.

Perhaps you can make something out of it - A reminder of a wonderful holiday you had.

In the Instructable "5 Things You Can Make From Glass Bottles", I covered some basic things you can make from glass bottles.

In this Instructable, we look at 3 more things.

If you are Interested in a video version of this Instructable and the embedded video does not appear on your mobile device, here is an alternative link

Step 1: Simple Candle Holder

I had this nice looking bottle.

It was perfect to make a candle holder.

I scored the line with a Ephrem's bottle cutter

Step 2: Simple Candle Holder

I used hot and cold water to split the bottle in half.

Other part of the bottle could be used to make a vase, but I did not need a vase as I made one in another Instructable.

Step 3: Glass Ring

Bottle neck of the wine bottle is perfect to make a ring out of it.

We need to cut out the ring.

I used a glass cutter to score the line around the bottle neck.

Step 4: Glass Ring

I heated up the line with a blow torch and then cooled it down in a glass of cold water.

Don't heat up the bottle too much or it might shatter.

Also, make sure to wear goggles

After a few repetitions, top broke off.

Step 5: Glass Ring

I scored another line under the ring.

Step 6: Glass Ring

I used blowtorch and cold water again.

Now I had a very rough ring.

Step 7:

To sand the ring, I used a silicon carbide powder and the sandpaper.

The end product is a thick glass ring.

Step 8: Wall Lamp

I scored the bottle and used hot and cold water to split it.

Step 9: Wall Lamp

I drilled a large hole in one piece with a diamond core hole saw.

I also drilled a smaller hole in another piece (to hang the lamp)

Step 10: Wall Lamp

I sanded both pieces with silicon carbide.

Step 11: Wall Lamp

I glued a plastic bulb holder inside of the bottle.

Step 12: Wall Lamp

And last, I glued both pieces together.

Epoxy glue was great for the job.

<p>The lamp is wonderful. but I don't have a glass cutter. is there no other way of cutting glass?</p>
<p>Yes, there are a few options:</p><p><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="281" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/WxKZ8hhcmvg" width="500"></iframe></p>
<p>Thanks and what are the options easily available? I am actually not into the hardware things but would like to try some simple ones. Also, I did not get hot glue when I searched on the online sites. I am from India. Can fevicol work? If not, what is the substitute for hot glue?</p>
<p>I am a bit confused. For what do you need a hot glue?</p><p>Do you mean the epoxy glue?</p>

<p>Hello,</p><p>I am very impressed with your hot glue recycle. We here at supplies 3d have loads of scrap ABS 1.75 mm filament. I would be happy to send it to you to play with . The scrap cannot be avoided. We pull 1kg spools into 20 foot strands and the end of the spool might leave us with 19 or just two feet. I don't toss it out in hopes of recycling it.</p>
<p>can u send me some</p>
<p>lakyce</p><p>You could send leftovers to me, please.</p>
<p>you guys should check this machine out: </p><p>redetec.com</p>
Is this ABS the material used in a 3D printer?<br>Or for what use?
<p>Hi!</p><p>That would be nice. I like to make things from recycled objects.</p><p>Unfortunately, I am located in Spain.</p><p>The postage would cost more than the scrap material.</p><p>I'll have to wait until teleportation is invented :)</p><p>Cheers</p>
<p>Simple yet great designs! My vote for the lamp! Definitely would like to try it soon!</p>
<p>Cool! Simple and nice things, wall lamp is my fave one. Thank you for sharing. :)</p><p>Greetings from Helsinki, Finland</p>
<p>Thank You!</p>

<p>The wall lamp is a great design. Well done.</p>
<p>Thank You!</p>
<p>I love these ideas!! I am scared because I am very clumsy but will try to make them. All the posts of ideas make me excited about trying your ideas!! Thank you for posting.</p>
<p>Thank You!</p><p>Don't be scared. Just try it out. Just get plenty of bottles as it's normal to make errors :)</p>
<p>Thanks, I will send you a picture if I am successful!</p>
<p>Great! I hope you succeed!</p>
<p>where do you get the silicon carbide from?</p>
<p>I got it from eBay.</p><p>Just search for silicone carbide powder.</p><p>Most of sellers sell it loose in a plastic bag (no brand)</p>
<p>nice one! i mean each of those, that's new style to cut glass for me, looks quite easy/convenient. This accompanies well for ''emptyed'' used light bulbs</p>
<p>Thank You!</p>
