(Can you tell that this is going to be a part of my Fall decor?)
Remember, how in my last post I grieved the loss of a certain amber bottle? Thanks to R I found one exactly like that. Yippee! I simply love, love, love its old, rustic look and its unevenness with minor scratches! *LOVE*. Anyway, here’s the promised tutorial as to how to cut a glass at home without a glass cutter. Or, let’s proudly rephrase this, how to cut a glass with yarn. Yeah, baby, yarn. Ready? Here we go. The picture is below for your ref.
1. Clean a glass bottle thoroughly, 2. take a cloth strip, twine it like a rope, dunk it in nail polish remover or deodorant or alcohol or spirit. The rope that you’ve made should be soaked in the medium but never dripping. 3. Tie it around the bottle tightly, from where you want to break it. 4. With a lighter or candle, burn the rope completely. Swirl it a bit to evenly distribute the heat. 5. When it completely birns out, dunk it in a bucket full of water. It will break clean!!! Hurrah! Now comes the final step. Polish the edges with sand-paper and you’re good to go.
