Special occasions call for a drink or two, but what are we to do with all those empty bottles after? Turn some of you lovely bottles into decorative containers that will hold more than just wine. Use them as votive candleholders, desk catchalls, penholders, flower vases, or as containers for your cooking utensils.

Materials:

  • Glass cutter (available in hardware stores, or order online at www.bottlecutting.com)
  • Screwdriver
  • Thick working gloves
  • 1 x 1-meter size ½ inch-thick plywood, or a sturdy, flat surface
  • Candle
  • Running water
  • Safety goggles
  • Empty liquor bottles (choose bottles with beautiful colors, like green or blue wine bottles, or go for imported beer bottles with interesting embossed labels)
  • Sandpaper or knife sharpener
