when readers send us suggestions for things to test on Pinterest. Case in Point is the How To Cut Glass Wine Bottles tutorial that has been floating around Pinterest for quite a while. I have been wanting to try it out for weeks but it wasn’t until Cassy, a PinTriedIt.com reader, asked us to find out if it really works.
I have to admit. This Pin Test had me slightly nervous. And for good reason, we are talking about glass, fire and cutting! By the time I finished this test I ruined a t-shirt and was bandaged up!
Glass Cutting Supplies
Cutting a glass wine bottle requires very simple household items that include:
- A Glass Bottle or Wine Bottle
- Twine (we learned that even a shoe string will work)
- Nail Polish Remover
- A Lighter
- A Bucket of Ice Water
- Eye Protection for the Safety-Minded
How to Cut Glass Wine Bottles
First step to cutting glass wine bottles is dipping your string into acetone, or nail polish remover.
Then wrap the string around the wine bottle a few times and tie it off.
Next you will light the twine on fire.
If your twine
is not catching on fire, like it didn’t for us, then you may have been soaked it in the nail polish too
I am not sure why, but in our attempts, we found when we only dipped the string into the nail polish remover, it would catch on fire. But if we let it soak- it wouldn’t.
I have no idea why.
Once the string catches on fire you should rotate the bottle so that the fire moves all around the bottle. You will be able to turn the bottle about a dozen times before the flame goes out.
As soon as the flame goes out- dip the bottle into your bucket of ice water.
Within a second or so of putting the bottle into the freezing water, you will hear a pop.
When you pull the bottle back out, it will be in two pieces.
Did the Glass Cut Smooth?
Our first attempt to cut glass wine bottles with nail polish remover and fire wasn’t a complete 100% success. As you can see in the picture above, there were fracture cracks around the brim. The glass also did not cut evenly around and was instead somewhat jagged.
We think it was our error because the jagged part was in the same place our knot for our string was.
Our second attempt was slightly better:
We noticed that the glass cuts above where our twine was placed. Which is another thing about all of this that confuses me.
Uses for Cut Glass Wine Bottles
Cutting glass wine bottles is actually a lot of fun to do. I read where some were taking old wine bottles and cutting them to turn them into glasses for wedding parties. So, my husband sanded the edges of one. I am drinking cherry coke out of right now!
Another use I found on Pinterest was to place a candle inside and then stack the bottle back together.
I consider myself to be at least somewhat intelligent.
I had a high SAT score in school.
My level of common sense is at least average.
But even I apparently have complete blond moments.
Freshly cut glass wine bottles are very sharp.
Don’t try to dry the glass bottle with your shirt.
And if you do, have band aids, a change of clothes and a phone near you!
