I've got a ton of pom wonderful bottles, they're these 8 inch tall bottles that are shaped like rounded hour glasses, and I was wondering if anyone had any ideas of what I could do with them. I'm thinking maybe candle holders. So if you can think of anything, please help me out.  Grin

Ooh, I have a Pom Wonderful bottle that I was hoping to use as well. They're too cute to throw out! My idea was to cover it in tissue paper using a "special" technique which I will describe, and using it as a vase. Here's the technique:

1. Cut small squares of tissue paper.
2. Place the eraser end of a pencil in the center of a square, fold paper up around pencil.
3. With the paper still wrapped around the pencil, dip the end in glue.
4. With the paper still wrapped around the pencil, stick the end to the surface of your project. Release when slightly tacky.

Each square of tissue paper ends up looking a bit like a blossoming flower. It gives a great texture to the bottle if you do a bunch end-to-end. You could do it all over, in patterns, etc. Another idea I had is to just cut squares of tissue paper and cover the bottle with them using a brush and watered-down glue. It might be a little see-through, so you could use it as a candle holder and it would give a nice glow.

Is there a way to remove the text that's printed on the bottles, like paint thinner or something? Or am I better off just trying to cover it up?

Here's what I did -- I sanded off the "label," and otherwise scuffed the entire surface to make it look frosted, then filled them with bath salts and turned them into "snowpeople!"

Here's a closeup of my favorite:

And here's what the "naked bottle" looks like:

To remove the wording, use the blocks that manicurists use on your nails -- I got mine at Sally's beauty supply for like 60 cents each (and one lasts a long time).  It's easy, fast, and alot less toxic than chemicals!
