Now you can!
Combine old wine glasses with toy cars and create your own hot-rod glassware!
Make a few and turn your boring glassware cupboard into a garage full of speedy racers, ready for your favourite bevvy.
These glasses are great for parties, and by using different cars your guests will never have cup mix-up again.
Making your own is cheap, easy and fun!
Sugru was used as the bonding agent for this project, however you can substitute for two-part epoxy.
Enough talk, let's vroom-vrooooom screeeeech *crash*!
Step 1: Tools + materials
Stemmed glassware can be found at any thrift store for under a dollar, ditto for the toy cars.
Step 2: Prepare glassware
The aim is to separate the bowl from the stem. Start by stuffing cloth inside of the glass to act as a brace against the impact, then wrap the stem with more cloth so shards of glass don't poke out your eyeballs.
Wear safety goggles.
Once wrapped, a firm tap with your screwdriver will usually separate the bowl. Some stems are thick and may require a more liberal strike, chose your glassware based on the stem thickness. In the process of separation breaking a glass or two may not be uncommon.
It's alright to have a little stem-nub remaining on the bowl, the nub will be buried in the car and will not be visible.
If you have a glass cutter or a propane torch you may find an alternative method to remove the stem. However this low-tech approach yields good results and is very quick.
