How to Cut a Glass Bottle in Half with Yarn and Fire

Bottles are great for DIY projects, and being able cut them in half just opens up possibilities (pun intended). Be sure to exercise caution taking on this method. After all, it does involve fire and sharp glass edges. When done properly, it can be useful and safe.
I cut this sparkling water bottle in half. Thicker bottles will take a little more effort but this was fairly easy.
Burn baby burn! Just make sure to spin the bottle and get plenty of fire to heat the bottle.
Pouring out some nail polish remover so the yarn could be dunked in.
The acetone soaked yarn rapped around the bottle where it is to be cut.
It is very important to round the sharp edges with sandpaper.
