A few of you had questions about how the bottles above I posted about here were possible. At first I had the same question and even thought to myself:
"What a great DIY!" "I have beautiful wine bottles sitting around here in the recyling!"
I don't think it's *quite* that easy, unfortunately. After reading the description below from the Napa Style webiste, I pictured lots of cuts on my hands and even more broken glass...not exactly the DIY I had envisioned!
"A celebration of the “Big Bottle” party I created years ago for the Wine Auction Napa Valley, our limited-edition Wine Bottle Hurricanes repurpose the outsized bottles used exclusively by winemakers for special bottlings. We’ve hand cut each and carefully polished the edges to create dramatic and evocative hurricanes that glow with flickering candlelight. At home on the dining table, indoors or out."
Hmmm...maybe not. As my Dad likes to say:
I think this is one project best left to the professionals.
They also have these in clear which I thought were pretty, too:
If you dare try your hand at it, I'd love to hear how it goes!
