The description of DIY Bottle Crafts Design Ideas

There are many interesting bottle crafts that you could make out of empty bottles you have accumulated. These bottles are made of strong materials and they also come in attractive colors. If you have collected a whole lot of these graceful looking bottles then you will easily be able to create all sorts of things out of them. You can make a whole lot of decorative and useful things out of these bottles as long as you have some creativity.
Some of the really easy bottle crafts include a lamp, a votive candle holder, a wind chime and a vase. If you feel really up to the challenge you could also make a beautiful chanadelier out of your collection of bottles. Melting the bottles into free-form shapes gives you the opportunity to make unusual vases and artifacts. Also known as slumping, this is usually done in a potter's kiln because you'll need high temperatures for the job.
If you are really good with your hands and with tools then you just need to have the right information on how to make different bottle crafts. Glass is not an easy material to work it, particularly since it can break easily if it is not handled in the correct manner. You'll definitely need to be able to cut glass or drill holes into it in order to make a variety of things. For instance, a regular bottle can only be used as a bud vase; it should have its neck cut off in order to accommodate more flowers.
You'll need a few specialized tools in order to work with this material. Most hobbyists have a tile cutter or a buffer wheel at home. A power drill should be equipped with a special glass-cutting tip in order to work on glass. A special glass-cutting wet saw will be required to cut bottles into the right shapes. You should also consider learning about the art of decoupage so that you can decorate your glass bottles properly.
You need to be very careful when working on glass. Since this material breaks easily you need to wear protective gear such as goggles and gloves before you start to work on them. You will also probably need a sufficient number of bottles (even beer bottles will do) so that you can get the hang of working on this material. You'll be really pleased with the results of bottle crafts.
When you enjoy vino, you're bound to collect a custom bottle or two. But rather than just throwing the bottles away when you're done, they can become a great item for crafts that fit well into many kitchen and décor themes. They can even be recycled into great gifts or as merchandise you can sell online, complete with personalized labels that can bear a message.
Olive oil pourers sound dull at first, but many times these fancy bottles show up around the holidays for gifts. Filled with aromatics and herbs these make great centerpieces and with a little research, you can turn them into flavorful infused olive oils that your friends can use while cooking. Lighter colored or clear bottles work best to properly showcase the contents. Just be sure that, once it's sealed with a cork, it's left in a dark place for a few days to set.
You can add in a variety of herbs and spices, such as cinnamon sticks, springs of rosemary, thyme or lavender, and even colorful red and yellow peppers for a bold touch! If you make a recipe to be used, consider adding unique labels so that people will know what's inside or if just for show you can leave it bare for a contemporary look.
For any painters, make these bottles into a unique canvas with glass paint. Brands such as Delta or Pebeo feature paints specifically for glass that have a higher transparency to allow light to shine through and many can be baked in the oven for a permanent finish. So if you come across a distinctive custom bottle consider what your paint skills can make it into!
