YBW and I decided to make wine bottle candle holders for the tables at our reception. We’ve been saving bottles for a bit and ended up with two dozen.
I watched loads of youtube videos and read everything I could about how to do it. We got a wine bottle cutting kit and went to town.
YBW started to score them while I got the next step ready.
We tricked the bottles into breaking by dipping them in simmering water and then into an ice bath. This worked the way we wanted it to most of the time…some of the bottles broke in ways that were undesired, and a even a few that were unexpected.
We sanded them and cleaned them and lined them up.
We started out with twenty four bottles and ended up with fourteen that we could use.
Add a bit of sand and a tea light and voila, a cool decoration for the tables.
We’re so dang crafty.
