Breaking the Bottle


I have to repost this and try this out!!! Follow the original  link here.

How to Cut a Wine Bottle

Gather Up:

Cotton String

Acetone Nail Polish Remover

a match

pot of ice cold water

Fill a pot with ice cold water and set to the side

Wrap a (medium thickness) piece of cotton string around the wine bottle three times (wrap it around up to 6 times for a thicker bottle), tie it. 

Once the string is tied, slide it off the wine bottle.

Soak the string in acetone based nail polish remover for 10 seconds

Put the nail polish remover soaked string back around the bottle on the spot where you would like it to cut

Using a match light just the string on fire, continually rotate the bottle in circles so that the fire spins around the bottle.  Keep rotating the bottle until the flames goes out.

Once the flame goes out, quickly submerge the bottle in a pot of ice cold water and watch it break!

Now you can imagine all of the possibilities for up-cycling wine bottles!
