How to Start Making Your Own Wine Bottle Candles

After you select the bottle you will use, it is time to cut it. With a marker, indicate the place where you cut it (this will depend on the model you have chosen), then you must draw a surface cut on the marked part. As a next step, apply heat for 5 minutes over the part you are working on and after this, immerse the bottles in cold water. In this part, the temperature change will cause the material to react and cut into the desired part. It should be noted that you may have to repeat this process several times until the glass is cut. When finally the bottle is cut, sand the cut part in order to avoid any deep cut when we are decorating or using it. After you already have the bottle cut, decorate it as you see fit. You can use ribbons, markers, paper and even frosting. Whatever you want!

The last step of all this process is to choose which part the candle will go to. The size of this also influences as you can put a thin on the mouth of the bottle or a very wide in the bottom of the bottle.

Comments to How to Make Wine Bottle Candles

  • I enjoyed looking at your wine bottle candle. Making and love the idea if repurposing items to help the planet. I am concerned though about the label. I love it and it is the best part of any bottle but, when you are selling your finished craft made with recycled, labeled wine bottles, can you get into trouble with trademark infringement when keeping the label on your bottle?

    • Hello Ms Susan. Thank you for your comment. I really don’t think you will get into trouble because of the label. You are re-using the bottle, and not using their label in a way that can damage the company in any way. I’m not a lawyer. So if you are not totally sure I would go for the options below.

      To be on the safe side though, I would reccomend going to a local print shop or online and have them make you some sticky labels. Make something unique that LOOKS like a wine brand. The best part of this is that you can add your website somewhere in the graphic.

      Another option is to go to a graphic website like shutterstock and download an image you can edit to your needs. Again you can add your website URL somewhere in the image.. Take this to a print shop and you can make YOUR OWN Brand.

      I made a quick sample which you can view on my facebook page – https://www.facebook.com/coffeenwines/photos/a.222770501389083.1073741828.206628329669967/609572246042238/
