Fill your pot/ bucket with cold water. Wrap the yarn around the bottle a few times, cut, and tie it off in a knot. Slip the yarn off the bottle. Soak the yarn in a few tablespoons of nail polish remover. Put the yarn back on the bottle. Light the yarn on fire- this is probably something that should be done outside, but as you can see, we did this in our kitchen. Kitchen is still standing.
Once your yarn is lite, spin the bottle around and around. Not too fast, not too slow. Watch the fire. You want to see consistent fire around the yarn. Spin the bottle until the fire goes almost completely out, like the last second of fire, dunk the bottle into the water. The bottle will crack under the yarn.
You can sand the edges to use as a juice glass. However, we have plenty of cups, so we didn't even bother sanding them. We like candles, so ours are candle holders. The bottles get hot with candles in them, but they didn't break or anything.
Check out this idea! My boyfriend is the real genius behind most of these projects. I never would have thought of this! How cool is this? I wonder if we could start seeds like this in the spring? Do you think?
This project was super fun to do with my boyfriend. He enjoyed this project more than I did!
I hope you enjoyed this project! I'd love to see your version! What else can you do with bottle cutting? Maybe use one as a planter or for storage?

I will upload a terrible video of us on FB so you can see how fast you need to spin the bottle.

Crafting for Dummies! Is that a book yet? This has to be the easiest and fastest project! This cost me $3 to make (excluding glue). I picked up all the supplies for this project at the dollar store!
Think of the possibilities with a tray like this! Do you think you could do a 3 tiered tray?!
-1 candle stick
First, clean all your pieces. Mine had price stickers and fingerprints. A little GooGone or olive oil will get any sticky residue off.
Figure out your tray configuration. Add glue to the bottom of the candlestick and place it in the middle of the tray.
Now, add glue to the top of the candlestick and place the second tray on top. Let it dry overnight.
SIDE NOTE: Personal care products are not regulated by the FDA because they are not considered edibles. Companies can use ingredients that are known carcinogens, mutagens, or reproductive toxins. Your skin is your largest organ and it absorbs 60% of what you put on it. Lipstick/ lip-gloss is easily ingested and may contain lead! Your mascara may contain mercury. Formaldehyde may be in your nail polish. Many common sunscreens contain a hormone disrupter called, oxybenzone. Titanium dioxide is a cancer causing chemical found in sunscreen and cosmetics.
How about using this stand in the kitchen to display cupcakes? Or in the bathroom for supplies? Or jewelry in your closet? What will you use your tray for? Leave me a comment below.
Until next time,
