Wine Bottle Tumblers

Turn old wine bottles into elegant mugs with just one "pop"
We have already got used to professional tutorials made by "Brit+Co.", and we are not disappointed with their Wine Bottle Tumblers this time too. I tend to collect wine bottles after each party, especially those green ones. We used them for this colorful Painted Bottle Vases project some time ago, and now they're ready to become extraordinary tumblers.

You may not be familiar with some of the tools and supplies needed (like bottle cutter or etching fluid), but as you follow Brit's steps, you'll see it is not as scary as it looks like. Tumblers like this can be an excellent gift idea or a base for another project. Feel free to embellish them the way you like and share your work below.

Check out the tutorial on Brit + Co.

Supplies / ingredients:

  • Wine bottles
