I cannot even tell you how excited I was when I found this pin explaining how simple it is to cut glass bottles. For our first anniversary, my husband signed us up for a glassblowing class. It was awesome and we had a great time. As we were leaving, one of the artists was turning Corona bottles into drinking glasses for a friend’s wedding gift. I was wondering why these glasses weren’t one of the projects we could choose from that day. I left there thinking that Corona glasses could only be made by the glassblowers and their fancy equipment. Apparently I was wrong.
You can cut glass bottles at home using materials you probably already have on hand.
nail polish remover
sink full of ice water
1. Wrap the cotton yarn around your bottle 5-6 times, tie and cut ends. You can also braid three pieces together and tie that around the bottle. I actually had better results using the braided yarn.
The hardest part about this project is getting the cut in the right spot. Because the Corona logo goes up so high, you don’t have much room to work with. The glass on the neck of the bottle is thicker and harder to cut using this method, so it took a few tries for me to get the desired results. It was worth it though!
You can make more than just drinking glasses. Think vases and candle holders too! This method is supposed to work on wine bottles too, though I haven’t tried those yet.
