I finally had success with cutting a wine bottle... If you haven't seen my failed first attempt check it out HERE, if for nothing else, at least for a laugh :)
Here is a pic of it as a candle cover.. Wouldn't it be so cute to do some of these for an outdoor summer night party? Ahhh I cannot wait for summer!
I did do some things differently when cutting this bottle. It took three times before I finally got it. Here are a couple of hints to make it easier for you:
2. I wrapper the string around the bottle 6 times. The first two time I did it I used more and it seemed to be too much.
3. I used a candle on an upside down mason jar to have a constant flame, as I was doing this by myself.
4. Keep the bottle at all times almost vertical with a little tilt to the side to keep the heat inside the top of the bottle.
5. When the string stops burning around the bottle, immediately put it under running COLD water and watch out because it explodes right off the bottle.
Good Luck and Happy Day Everyone!
