Reader Becky M. tried to make this DIY Cut Glass Wine bottle she saw at Picklee.com. The technique is not for the faint-of-heart as it involves soaking string in a flammable liquid, lighting it, plunging into ice water, and finally, broken glass. A few of my personal phobias are represented on that list.
Becky said: “I had a beautiful bottle from Truro Vineyards on Cape Cod that is in the shape of a lighthouse. I thought it would make a wonderful vase.”
“Not only did I fail but I had two casualties — a chunk out of my thumb and a ruined manicure.”
Avert your eyes if you can’t stand the sight of blood!
Beck definitely did a double nailed it on this one!
