What do you do with all those leftover bottles? Recycle them? Sure. But what about making them into glassware, planters, windchimes . You have probably seen these upcycled bottles for sale online or even in boutiques.So save those champagne (they work best), wine, Grolsch or any decorative liquor bottles like Grey Goose or JD . With a little practice and a $20 basic bottle cutter you can easily upcycle some glassware, planters, windchimes and more to use at home or give as gifts.
Here is what you need:
. Bottles. Thick wine and champagne bottles work best. Beer bottles are generally too thin. However, I have had good luck with Grolsch beer bottles and these make a nice set of glasses for the cabin or to give as a gift.
Bottle Cutter. I use the Diamond Tech G2 Bottle Cutter
. There are a number of cutters out their but for the price this works well.
Gloves, eye protection, dust mask.
Boiling hot water.
Ice bath or snow bath.
Emory sanding cloth: Coarse, Medium and Fine grits.
