We like drinking wine at my house, so of course we have a collection of empty wine bottles just waiting for a craft project.
Tools of the trade lol. I have the wine bottle chosen, pure acetone, and scissors. We didn’t have cotton string so I substituted a cotton t-shirt and cut thin strips to use, and you can see it soaking in the acetone cap full of acetone.
Tied the acetone soaked cotton strips around the wine bottle, where you want it to be cut. Then set that thing on fire…
And like the instructions said I turned the inferno bottle around and around, trying to make sure the heat was evenly distributed before I plunged it into the mop bucket full of ice water (that’s how we do around here)
This is what happens after the bottle takes the icy plunge, the top of the bottle just pops right off (I would like to note at this time that it took me 3-4 attempts to let the cotton string burn long enough because I was afraid I was doing it wrong. You must let the the fire burn all the way out before you “take the plunge”)
Apparently I didn’t turn the bottle correctly or evenly while the fire burned, my “cut” line turned out wonky.
And here is the finished product!!! I was incredibly proud of the fact that I was even remotely successful at this.
So let me know if you have attempted/completed this craft and let me know how yours turned out! Thanks for reading, we have lots more to come!!!
