I recently cut wine bottles in half & used the bottoms for solar patio lights. I couldn't bring myself to throw away the leftover tops so I decided make glass bells from them.
I used the original corks or screw tops & suspended beads from fishing line, for the clappers.  With one stroke flowers painted on them, I think they're quite attractive but was most pleasantly surprised when I heard the sweet, tinkly sound they make.  I just wish I could record & post it here so everyone could listen to them.

These are beautiful. 100% recycled!!! Great idea. Your painting skills are fantastic. This is an awesome idea. (Did I miss the pics of the lights?)

Thanks for the kind words.  I posted the "Light up my life" patio lights a few weeks ago.  At the moment, it's a few posts below this one in this same thread.  I hope you like them as well.  Both were fun projects now that I've figured out how to cut the bottles with any degree of success.
