I am trying to figure out what I can do with these...I have tons but don't want to throw them away. I do not have a glass cutter so that option is out. Any ideas?

I wrapped some bottles like that in yarn and had instant vases. Cheesy I gave those as gifts for Christmas and such.

i have some bottles too but i don't want to make a vase out of them... i kindof want to be a little more creative so if you figure out anything let me know.

I am not sure if this is an option... but i burn inscents and make inscent bottles... if you drill two holes into the bottom of the bottle to let air in (need a glass or masonery bit), you can hang the inscent inside by a key ring, then the ashes fall into the bottle not making a mess, and the scent comes out the top... its really cool looking too... and works really well... you can decorate any way you like... let me know if you want more info i can try to find a pic.

if you had some wide necked bottles/jars you can make lanterns for the garden (we used to put them in the trees when we were camping too) by tying string (or wrapping wire) round the neck and making a loop over the top (to hang on the branch) you can decorate them if you like (tissue paper and pva works great) pop in a tea light and there you are, one garden lantern (or fairy light)

you can hang the inscent inside by a key ring,

Where does the key ring go?

And christina volta, what is the name of the stuff you use?

Thanks for the info!

If you don't know where you're going, any road will take you there.

the key ring would hold the inscent stick... in between the little slots (dont know how to explain that better  Huh) but then you put the stick down inside the bottle... the key ring keeps it from falling inside, and just kind of sits on the mouth of the bottle... just have to make sure the key ring is bigger then the bottle opening... i have had them fall through Smiley  hope that helps, it is really cool when you get one made up...

I went to some resturaunt a while back and they used beer bottles into a chandelier. One bottle in the middle and then more on the outside of that one and even more on the out side of those I think.

like this:

but you could use some good metal wire though

You could try that or maybe make a small lamp.

You can use them as candle holders with almost no work at all.  Or containers for anything small enough.

Or if you like kitschy you could Look at the shape of the bottle and see if it suggests a person or animal.  Just by adding something for a head and decorating the bottle you can get an interesting figure.
