First method to cut a glass bottle:
Cut a glass bottle – Material:
- wine bottles or other glass bottles
- a pair of gloves (for safety)
- a string
- methylated spirits
- a lighter
- a cup (to put the spirit in)
- a basin filled with cold water
Cutting a wine bottle in half – Tutorial:
Step 1: The rope
Clean the glass bottle before you start and put on your safety gloves.
Cut a piece of your string and place it in the rubbing alcohol so that it is well soaked. Then wrap it around the glass bottle just where you want to make the cut. Feel free to pull the string tight.
Set the string on fire, being careful not to burn yourself. When the string falls off by itself, immediately place the bottle in a basin filled with very cold water (you can even add ice cubes). This is when the bottle will break in half on its own.
In order to avoid any cuts on the broken glass, rub the edge with sandpaper. You can make several cuts on the same bottle, depending on your projects.
Now it’s your turn!
Go ahead and make circles, jars or other wonders! All the pieces of the bottle can be used as interior decoration. The top of the bottle is ideal for your candles or to make a nice hanging lamp. By making different circles of glass you can make very beautiful displays.
