Wine Bottle Torch!

Ever wonder what you can do with a wine bottle after you’ve finished it? Well, why not create an awesome wine bottle torch! This page teaches you how to build a torch out of a wine bottle for about $5. You heard me correctly! Also, it is a great way to recycle if you are environmentally conscious. All you need are these easily found items:

1.              Empty Wine Bottle (You can use any bottle you like as long as it is glass and the neck is 1” in diameter. Be clever!)

2.              Teflon Tape 1/2”

3.              Copper Top Plate Connector (threaded for 3/8”-16 thread rod)

4.              1” Split Ring Hanger (threaded for 3/8”-16 thread rod)

5.              1/2” x 3/8” Copper Coupling

6.              1/2” Copper Cap

7.              Two Hex Nuts (threaded for 3/8”-16 thread rod)

8.              Two #10 x 1” Zinc Plated Wood Screws (if your mounting it to wood)

9.              3/8”-16 Zinc Plated Threaded Rod (I bought a 3’ rod and cut it down to 8, 4-1/2” rods with a hacksaw.)

10. Tiki Replacement Wick

11. Torch Fuel (For safety reasons, only use fuel made specifically for outdoor torches. i.e. Tiki brand)

Creative, Environmentally friendly, and awesome!
