A great idea for all the bottles I have acquired.

i forgot about my bottle chimes, they filled up with water and froze and that was the end


That one looks like the bottles were flattened out in a kiln, not cut lengthwise. Really nice, though. My husband makes wine and we re-use bottles all the time, so he has a stash of empties. I can make something out of them. Yay, new project.

I have melted wine bottles in my wood stove when its hot. I have flattened them out pretty good with not having a kiln.
