Introduction: 5 Things to Make From Bottles

What to do with all those empty bottles?

Why not try bottle cutting!

In this instructable we are looking at 5 things you can make from empty glass bottles.

  • Drinking glass
  • Ashtray
  • Vase
  • Candle Holder
  • Egg Cup

There are different techniques to cut the bottles.

I personally do it this way.

I score the line with a bottle cutter and use candle and ice method to split the bottle in 2 pieces.

I heat the bottle on the candle and cool it with an ice cube, repeating the procedure until bottle splits in two pieces.
