One thing that’s certain in life is that it’s moving at a fast pace, and everything that we love is getting more expensive with each passing year. Take beer, for instance. I can still recount the days when a bunch of us from school would go to pick up pints of beers from the local wine shop for as little as 20 bucks. And now that I’m all grown up to have my own quaint little place, I realised that it’d be nice and ‘adult’ of me to stop making people sip their poison from beer bottles, or worse still, plastic glasses!
If you’ve ever gone out to buy glasses, you’d know that the nice ones are expensive AF! I was so taken aback by the prices that I even cried about it back home. Sheesh!
No. I shall not spend thousands over glasses that will be used only once in a blue moon. I will instead spend my Sundays making something out of the gazillion beer bottles lying around in my balcony, playing commode to thankless pigeons.
And so, these amazing concepts have been my goal. All you need is some super-glue, and the will to make it happen. Read on and make your old beer bottles into everyday glasses.
1. Wine Glasses
You can flame cut the bottle, sand it down nicely, and glue the tops to the bottom! Voila, you have yourself a brand new wine glass.
2. Cocktail Glasses
If cocktails are what you crave for, simply cut the bottle slightly closer to the bottom and make yourself the perfect rocks glass.
3. Simple Pint Glasses
If you just need a pint glass, and aren’t too picky with the glass, then large beer bottles are the best way to go about it.
4. Tall Wine Glass
You can construct one quite easily by simply removing the top of a bottle and placing it on the bottom with some glass adhesive.
5. Customized Cocktail Glass
With beer glasses, always try and be creative.
6. Gold Leaf Tumblers
Just because it’s DIY, doesn’t mean it can’t be gorgeous. These gold leaf tumblers are perfect for a fancy occasion and could house any number of your favorite signature cocktails.
7. Mojito Glass
The prettier the bottle, the better the glass, obviously. Like this one, the perfect mojito glass.
Here’s how easy it is to make.
8. Aluminium glasses
Budweiser did come out with special aluminium bottles. If you have them, or can arrange them from somewhere, they are perfect for the clumsy kinds, like myself. Unbreakable.
Versatility is the key here.
10. Tapered Beer Glasses
You can have your glasses blown with a slight flare. The tapering effect is perfect for maintaining head and showcasing colour.
11. Tall Beer Glasses
Stange glass is recommended for those dry summer nights. Beautiful tall beer glasses so you can enjoy your brew while they’re still nice and cold.
Safely remove the top from one of your favourite brews just strap on a handle, and you’re good to go.
13. Shot Glasses
As long as you can manage to glue back those caps, you can get yourself those amazing tiny shot glasses for the special occasions.
Phew! This just saved me a majority of my salary. Thank you DIY lords!
