YAS! We are in love
I started collecting really unique and pretty wine bottles this winter. In the middle of recently rearranging my makeup stash, I thought “why didn’t I think of this sooner”! I had all these different bottles and really nothing to do with them I just knew I wanted to try to cut them. I started Googling and Pinteresting (I guess that’s a word) different ways to cut bottles but this video by Green Power Science had by far the best explanation and demonstration. After watching the video about a hundred times I decided to order a bottle cutter from Generation Green ($17 bucks but so worth it). When I received the cutter in the mail I went to town on half the bottles I had saved. I practiced on one or two bottles that I didn’t care for first and by the third bottle I had it all under control and was cutting nearly 100% perfect lines.
Here is what you will need:
- Generation Green Bottle Cutter
- Sandpaper (1000-2000 grit) AND (150 grit)
- Very Hot Water
- Very Cold Water
- This awesome video from Green Power Science
- Used/Empty Wine Bottles
- Makeup Brushes
- Watch the Green Power Science video
- Practice on a bottle or two and cut your desired bottle
- Once your bottle has been cut, sand the cut edges (inside rim, top and outside rim) with 150 grit sandpaper until even/semi-smooth
- Rinse and dry the bottle to remove any dust
- Use 1000-2000 grit sandpaper to smooth any uneven or sharper edges. Dip the sandpaper in water and continue to sand until smooth
- Rinse and dry the bottle again
- Fill the glass slightly above the halfway point with poly-pellets
- Add your brushes
- Display where desired 🙂
