i tried last night and it worked!!!! SO excited. I didnt have the string perfectly level around and had some cracking, but i was just testing.

I used yarn left over from the previous times that were still tied, and i lit them up once before so it looks like you can reuse a few times.

For those of you who it didnt work for, let it burn for at least 20-30 seconds (count SLOWLY) and then quickly dunk it in ice water (as cold as you can get it) I think my fallbacks were that i got antsy/nervous and didnt let it burn long enough.

Also, i tied yarn around the bottle, slipped it off and then soaked it in the rubbing alcohol for a bit and left it as wet as i could without it dripping all over the place and slipped it back on. i figure the more alcohol, the longer it can burn = the better.

ill post when i have some good results!!! and the edge of the bottle didnt seem that sharp either.. cup ready?

Aww.....I used to have about a dozen empty Absolut bottles sitting around, and I couldn't come up with anything easy to do with it, so they ended up in the recycling....this is such a great idea! I love it!

Nice idea, here we in India pay very much for buying gel candles on the Diwali festival. Now I will try and will surprise many. Thanks for sharing the concept.
