It’s Friday Friends and I’ve got another I Tried a Pin!
Months ago I saw this amazing pin that claimed I could cut glass with yarn, nail polish remover, a lighter (or match) and a sink of cold water! I couldn’t wait to try this one.
With my 11-year-old son as my assistant we went to work.
I wrapped the yarn around a bottle 3 times and tied it off.
Then I slide the yarn off and put it a shallow bowl that I had fill about 1/8 inch high with nail polish remover.
I let it soak in the remover for about a minute before removing it.
Then I slide it back over the bottle… make sure you line it up as straight as possible… it’s going to cut where the yarn is placed.
Then came the moment my son couldn’t wait for… fire! (make sure you are in a safe area)
He lit the yarn and I held it right over the water with it angled up. It really burned smoothly. I kept turning it slowly till it burned itself out (about 40 seconds).
I immediately, gently put it in the cold water and POP – it instantly broke! It was so cool!!!
I wanted to make a ton more. So many possibilities swirling through my head.
I took some fine sandpaper and smoothed the edges to insure there were no sharp edges.
Check it out…
I had fun using it as a cloche.
I got a new lens this week… so I’ve been having fun!
The Hubster suggested using it to hold a candle outside.
How cute would a bunch of these be on a patio table. I used the base (that had been cut off) and a tea light candle.
This Pin was a success! I give it 2 big thumbs up.
