My pleasure! I should take a picture of the cleaned bottles I have waiting for me to cut…they take up my entire dining room table. You are right about the time-consuming aspect of it, but in the end, you get really affordable, cool-looking centerpieces! Post a picture after you do some cutting & let us see how it goes!

Love it! Super cute, fairly easy, and “green” friendly. Love, love, love it!

I did this for table numbers so no cutting was involved but I actually didn’t soak the bottle at all. I just peeled the label off slowly and carefully and then wiped with goo gone and they were perfect.

@katherine26: When you get to the bottle cutting part, I STRONGLY recommend the Generation Green G2 Bottle Cutter. It’s the closest thing I could find on the internet. http://www.delphiglass.com/more-crafts/bottle-cutter-art/generation-green-g2-bottle-cutter

The only thing is that on some Pinot Noir and Champagne bottles, the glass is a little thick, making it hard to cut. (You’ll be able to tell by the weight of the bottle.) ANYWAY, like the guy says in the video, the key is only scoring ONE TIME AROUND THE BOTTLE.

I keep a pot of boiling water on the stove and use a 2 cup liquid measuring cup (with spout) made of silicon. It takes about 1 cup of boiling water over the score line, then a run under cold water. Often, it pops right off. Sometimes, you need another 1/2 cup or so.

I’ve only played with it so far (I’ve done about 6 bottles) but it was really easy! (Which is good, because I need 60+)

Do you know anyone in the wine industry or that owns a restaurant? I’m just having a sommelier collect them for me. It’ll take her one weekend! 🙂

Good luck!!
