Usually, when we finish a beer we throw the bottle away or take it to a recycling center. With this DIY project, you can turn those empty bottles into some great looking drinking glasses.
And the process is pretty simple. All you need is:
- Lighter fluid or rubbing alcohol
- Beer bottles
Fill up the sink or a large bowl with ice water. You are going to be placing the bottle in the water after the next few steps. Soak the yarn in the alcohol or lighter fluid. Make sure to drip out all of the extra fluid. Now tie the yarn around the neck of the bottle, making sure to have the cup height you desire.
With the soaked yarn tied tightly around the bottle, hold it from the neck or base, keeping it as far away from you as possible, and light the yarn on fire.
Rotate until the yarn has burned off and then dunk the glass into the ice water for a few seconds. Take it out and you should be able to separate the two pieces. With your cup shaped piece, use the sandpaper to smooth out the top and you're done.
Continue this process until you have a nice set to give away for Christmas.
Now if these ideas aren't enough to satisfy your beer crafting needs, then try this on for size. Sure, it'll only be around for Christmas, but just think how much fun it will be to make your own beer bottle Christmas tree? Who else is gonna drink all of that lager?
