I made these with wine bottles for my winery wedding. We used them as the center pieces on the tables filled with fresh flowers.Now I gave them to friends as a house warming gift or I just use them around our house to put fresh flowers in.
Where did you find the tool he used?
yes Heather....HELP! where did you find the tool?
Can't seem to find the tool either....where did you get it from and what was the cost? Appreciate it!
There are several variations on the cutter. I bought mine at Joann Fabrics online for around $20. I heat mine in a pot of really hot water for about 15 seconds, then plunge into ice water and get a pretty clean cut. Then, sand and sand some more.
What number silicone carbide grit should I use? And what kind of sand paper? I found the cutter on delphiglass.com
I wish I hadn't just put my good wine bottle in recycling!
What if you want the paper label on the glass? Is there a coating that works well to waterproof it so the glass can be washed?
This is a great idea, and a set of wine bottles would make a really unique gift
Happy to see your blog as it is just what I’ve looking for and excited to read all the posts. I am looking forward to another great article from you. I presently used custom imprinted drink-ware. I want to buy just like yours soon. Thank you.
Making drinking glasses or personalized glassware from wine bottles has been around for years, and while it is relatively easy to cut a bottle, making a nice useful drinking glass is a little more difficult.
