Do it yourself drinking glasses

I’m always on the lookout for interesting glasses for beer and wine but I’m not too keen on spending a lot of money. Sometimes I have trouble throwing beer bottles away because they look so nice. Here’s a short video on making your own beer glasses out of beer bottles.

Process

Want to make your own customized glassware? It is easier than you think if you keep safety first (gloves and water source). Here are all the materials needed to turn your Corona bottle into fine glassware.

1 Bottle of Isopropyl Alcohol (Rubbing alcohol)
A good length of cotton string or yarn
1 Bucket of Water
1 Serving of patience

By tying the string around the bottle and igniting it we can weaken the bottle which will split it in two pieces when added to an ice bath.

Remember to wear proper safety gear and have a fire extinguisher or water source near by.

Art of Manliess has a process of making beer bottles into classes as well.

I’ve often admired the artwork on beer bottles, liquor bottles, even craft soda bottles. And I’ve often wondered how to capture some of this artwork in a way that doesn’t involve simply collecting the bottles. When I stumbled across a shop in Vegas that sold beer and wine bottle drinking glasses, I knew I found my answer. With a little bit of research, I found out how easy it can be to make the same glasses without the hefty retail price tag. What’s great about this project is how versatile it is. It could take the shape of wine bottles turned into vases for Mother’s Day, manly wedding gifts for a groom using his favorite beverage, or you can use smaller bottles and create a set of tasting glasses.

It’s also cheap, fast, and uses items that can be found in most households. And did I mention you get to play with fire?

With this project, you are using fire and chemicals, so take extra precautions. Having said that, I’ve done this a few times, and never had any issues or even felt nervous about the safety of it. You’re just as likely to injure yourself using a drill or a hammer and nail.
