Turn Empty Beer Bottles Into Drinking Glasses


Don’t throw those empty beer bottles away just yet! This awesome DIY lets you turn any old beer bottle into a reusable drinking glass. Repurposing glass bottles has never been easier, and it’s also a great way to transform the look of your home without spending any cash. Check out the tutorial below to learn how your empty beer bottles can become drinking glasses.



You will need:

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


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.
