Suddenly my saved Perrier bottles had a purpose! They were destined to become super cute juice glasses that would add a nice punch of color in our glass cabinet. I had it all planned out. So using my bottles, butcher twine, nail polish remover, an ice bath in the sink, and a lighter, I got started.
I then removed it, soaked it in a plastic container of nail polish remover. I used a container that could just be recycled afterward. Then I placed it back on the neck of the bottle and took the lighter to it. Can you make out that flame? It’s so incredibly faint. I think that should have been my first clue that this round wasn’t going to work out. But I followed instructions to slowly rotate the bottle so all of it gets some flame. I let it burn as long as I could. It was supposed to be about 60 seconds, but it extinguished itself after about 15 seconds.
And again, nothing happened. I did like the instructions and tapped it. The instructions said to use a spoon, but I tapped it against the metal rim of the garbage disposal, and the top cracked off. Not at the string line, but at the mouth. So next round – new ammunition – yarn.
Nothing worked, so after 4 failures, I threw in the towel on this one. I failed this challenge, but I will be back with another. I’m convinced this can work. Maybe I’ll just need to find different bottles, and maybe different yarn…we’ll see, but I’ll definitely keep you in the loop!
I’m still working on having something for tomorrows pinterest challenge deadline…stay tuned!!
