I live in a dry state. So, I do not know what it feels to have a lot of empty liquor bottles at your place. Rather, I have to dispose of each and every liquor bottle to avoid the wrath of legal complications.
But I have not always lived in a dry state. So, I am not alien to the sight of liquor bottle plentitude either.
My dad had a small room that housed all his empty bottles. The paper cartons further housed those bottles. There were so many cartons that at one point in time the boxes touched the ceiling of the room.
Also, a few friends of mine have cupboards full of empty beer bottles.
Selling off the empty bottles to a junk trader seems the viable option to get rid of them. Though the best option is to recycle them into beautiful cut bottle art.
As much as I would want to turn glass bottles into a creative pursuit. I cannot. Cutting and handling glass is not my forte.
So, my wine bottle art projects involve recycling the bottles as pots to grow herbs.
It is fortunate that there exist a lot of creative handmade artists that excel in cut bottle art. From exquisite jewelry to the beautiful home decor. These creative artists have made a multitude of bottle artwork.
You can have a look at them below:
