I've taken a blown glass tequila bottle and repurposed it into a home decor accessory! Love this project? You can buy your own by clicking the link below. Just so you know, Hometalk may collect a small share of sales from the links on this page.
Take a regular alcohol bottle (this ones a tequila bottle), most alcohol bottles are not recyclable
Remove all labels
Clean both inside and outside, make sure its dry.
Paint the bottom first
Then paint the sides (probably a couple of coats)
Prepare the topper, I used a vintage door knob.
Pre-drill a hole in the cork for the knob
Fasten the cork to the topper with glue (I use E6000)
Insert topper, allow to dry a few hours.
Add rhinestone border around the neck of the bottle
Prepare accessories by painting them and adding rhinestones.
Glue center accessory (this was a vintage brooch), add charms to a chain, add pearl string and its complete!

    Why do you say that the glass is not recyclable? Our recycling center takes all kinds of glass!

    I crochet around bottles of various sizes & give them as gifts! A tapered candle is added to the bottle opening...the square shaped petron/tequila bottles are super for this because their shear "base weight" prevents them from tipping over.

    This bottle (shown) was done for my Mom, who loves to see the sun shine through the colbalt blue of the glass! Enjoy crocheters out there! These unique candle holders are loved by those who love the ambience of "old fashioned re-using!"
