Inspired Fridays (#11)

Inspired Fridays is a weekly meme hosted by Inkk ReviewsYou don't have to actually craft anything to "be inspired". Show something you maybe have done, want to try, or whatever inspires you!

Here's what inspires me this week...

No, I'm not into liquors, but I do have a little bottle of Jack Daniel's in my kitchen since God knows how long... I always thought I'd make something with it because I really like the design (yep, the designer in me is always around with her 'crazy' creativity :P) and then I saw this on an Etsy shop. Uh, that looks great!

On Pinterest there are pictures similar to this one, and they all have the same DIY liquor bottle candles description: Use yarn soaked in nail polish remover, tied around the bottle at the breaking point and then light it on fire. Let burn for 20-30 seconds rotating constantly, then dip into ice water. Bottle will break exactly where the yarn was tied!

So, I definitely think I'm going to give it a try because let's face it, the result is quite good looking, especially for a book lover apparently! ;)

    This is a beautiful idea,Silvia! We definitely need to find a good use to that bottle, since we're not drinking the whiskey... LOL
    There are many odd-shaped bottles that once could use, they would make nice ornaments!

  2. This looks fabulous! Do try to make one and share pics. I think it's a perfect shelf decoration. Plus, it kind of adds some personality and charisma, doesn't it?

    That looks really cool.. :)

  4. I agree and we could definitely use many other odd-shaped bottles as well, but we need to work on this one first ;)

  5. You're totally right, Pat! And I will try to make one myself for sure!
