Apologies for the "two Jack Daniel's in a row", but I had this idea, and since it's going to live in my bathroom, I wanted to go with the shape I like best (from those I have at hand) - a half-size Jack Daniel's bottle. You'll need:

- a bottle
- a soap dispenser (re-used from a bought one)
- a cork
- drill
- knife
- grinder (optional)
- varnish (optional)
- liquid soap

For this one, I decided to leave the label on. If you want to do the same, it could be worth protecting it with a few layers of clear varnish. I ground the screw-top bit of the bottle off - aesthetically speaking, it's still a bit taller than I would like, but I'll keep my eyes peeled for a larger soap dispenser top that might actually fit over the top, so I decided not to mess with it now.
Drill the cork so that your soap dispenser sits inside it (I needed a 13mm drill), then carefully whittle until it fits inside your bottle (if you're lucky, it'll fit straight-away - mine didn't). Put it all together - voilà!


Hi, I do think this is an excellent blog. I stumbledupon it ;) I may come back once again since I book-marked it. Money and freedom is the greatest way to change, may you be rich and continue to help others.

    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!
