You'll need:

- a pub-sized spirit bottle (mine's a Smirnoff)
- a tile saw
- grinder

- glass nuggets
- corkscrew hazel branches
- water
- Easter eggs 

Saw the top of the bottle off at an aesthetically pleasing point. Grind edges smooth if necessary. Fill to just under half with nuggets, arrange branches, then carefully fill in the rest of the nuggets (they help anchor the branches and stabilise the whole thing). Fill with water (my branches are cut and still alive, so despite the weather, I'm hoping for a bit of green on them - you can skip the water if your branches are dead). Hang with Easter eggs (for details on how mine were decorated, see below:


I miss doing Easter Eggs :o(

    The "Take a Bottle" project is, essentially, an combination of a) my "Follies for Follies" project, which got me into whimsical work, c) recycling and preserving the planet, d) a general tendency to tinker, and e) an ever-existing quest to make glass accessible to a wide variety of people. The concept is simple - taking existing glass (it doesn't have to be a bottle, of course), and turn it into something else. While I am mainly running this project for my own amusement, I am very happy to run workshops on glass recycling and crafting with glass. If you do any of the projects, I'd love to see your results!
