With all of the candy around this week, I decided to take a nice small bottle and turn it into 2 versions of candy dishes. I started with a mini champagne bottle, cut it in 2 and sanded away.
Again I used a kitchen scrubber and a little bit of dish soap to get the label remnants off. I have had a few bottle cutters ask me how I preserve the labels on the bottles. Generally I don't, I remove them and I tend to use nicely painted bottles for my projects as well. I just haven't found something that is safe to use on glass ware or to eat from.
To add a little something extra to make the dishes a little more unique, I put a little battery powered LED at the bottom.
Part of the benefit of the Kinkajou bottle cutter is to create things for your home that nobody else has. The one of a kind projects are great conversation starters.
