I was reading a book from the library a while ago called Pretty Little Things and one of the projects was an art doll with a skirt made from an upended wine goblet with the stem cut off. Interesting and very pretty, I decided to give it a try. it required some glass work (only a few burns) which I totally loved (the work, not the burns! Cheesy).
Here's what I came up with, both for the wonderland swap.

Those are so neat! Also very creative!  I love both of them... I love the red element in the second one, and I love the keyhole in the first one!

These are amazing, and I am totally inspired to do something with some sweet little bottles I have laying around.

See if your library will order that book in for you, she had projects with little bottles that were Incredible! The whole book was great, I wanted to try every project. Some of the glass stuff was... just... so... AmaZinG!
