2 Creative Chicks is trying to add new things to their challenges. This month it is repurposed glass. I knew right away I had the perfect thing. A while ago I was at a craft show and saw some really neat wine bottles turned into candle holders. First you must master the art of cutting the bottom of the bottle off. It took some time to get it right without cracking the bottle but after doing a few I learned the secret to doing it. The u slide a typical egg whisk into the bottle with the handle sticking thru the neck of the bottle. this will hold your candle. It is ok to use either a battery powered candle or a real tealight. Then You can paint an image or Use your Silhouette to cut out an image for the outside of your bottle. I made several of these and gave them as gifts. It was not my original idea but one I saw and thought was great!
