I need a neat project for empty 3 liter wine bottles? Answered

I have a number of empty 3 liter Carlo Rossi wine bottles and I am looking for a project to use them instead of throwing them in the land fill.  If you have a project, please give as many details as possible.

I could help you empty some 3 liter wine jugs ;-)

But my favorite glass cutting technique is to scratch a good even
perimeter line around my bottle, wrap a nichrome wire in the groove,
heat it fit any electric supply and
then splash cold water on the scratch causing a clean split.

The LED string works well.

How many bottles do you have, though?

Thanks.

I have been discarding them all along. I get about 3 a month.

I have tried putting lights in them and that is one of the ideas that sound good.
