Quick & Easy DIY! Turn Empty Beer Bottles Into Drinking Glasses

If you’re looking for a sustainable way to update your drinkware collection, look no further! This creative DIY is quick and easy – and all you need are a few items to get started. We love the unique look of these drinking glasses, and who doesn’t love an excuse to drink a few beers? Check out the steps below to turn your trash into treasure!

You will need:

  • Empty beer bottles
  • Kinkajou Bottle Cutter
  • Bottle cutter separation tie
  • Boiling water
  • Ice cold water
  • Sandpaper, 60grit
  • Sandpaper, 40grit

Instructions:

Step 1: Prepare the bottle.

To remove the labels, scratch up the corner of the label. If it’s dry, the glue will come off with water; if it’s wet, the glue will be acetone/alcohol soluble.

Step 2: Attach the bottle cutter.

Don’t over tighten the clamps. You want to be able to allow the bottle to rotate freely while you’re making the score line. Once you’ve made an entire rotation, you should hear a very distinct popping sound. Stop rotating the bottle and remove the device.

Step 3: Attach the separation tie.

Alternate between pouring boiling hot (first) and ice cold water (second) over the separation tie. Continue pouring until the glass separates itself completely.

Step 4: Sand the edges.

Using a heavy grit sand paper with a little water on it will allow you to remove the sharp edges. You can follow up with a lighter sand paper grit for a nice smooth finish.
