Glass is one of those items that we can't live without in our modern day. It's a part of so many things we use each and every day, from the windows in our houses and vehicles to our phone and computer screens and the cups and bottles we drink from. Glass is thought to have been first created in ancient Egyptian times and the first glass pieces were beads. From there, more items were created like vessels and ornate cups. Since glass was intricate to make, it was considered a luxury item. If you think about it, glass has played a role in nearly every culture throughout history. From stained glass windows in churches, to jewelry and tools. Throughout the 20th century, glass was developed even more as an art form and collectors love the different pieces from esteemed glass blowers around the globe. You can even buy antique glass pieces at antique and thrift stores to display in your home or for practical use as well.
It's also great though to have ways to recycle your old glass into something new, so you don't have to go out and buy things. All you need to cut glass is the glass bottles of your preference, some string or yarn, some nail polish remover and a lighter or matches. Having someone to help you out is a great idea, but you can also easily do this yourself. Also, remember to take the necessary safety precautions when you're cutting your glass. You can wear gloves and safety glasses if you like to be on the safe side. All you do is take your string and wrap it around the bottle several times before tying it. Then, you take the string off and dip it in the nail polish remover and put it back onto the bottle wherever you would like to see your bottle cut. Then, over a sink of water, you carefully light the string on fire, rotating the bottle around slowly so that it heats evenly. As you'll see in the video, you simply dunk your bottle in the water and the end comes right off, which is pretty impressive. Enjoy trying out this awesome trick and make some cool diy crafts for home out of your old bottles. Check out more diy ideas from Trash Peaches' YouTube channel too.***
