DIY Wine Bottle Tiki Torch

Hey guys! I don't know about you, but I have always wanted to transform a wine bottle into something useful. I have seen so many tutorials on Pinterest about wine bottle candle holders, how to cut wine bottles to make glasses, etc.  The other day I came across a picture that really intrigued me.  It turned a wine bottle into a tiki torch.  Well, when I went to see how it was done, there was no website associated with the link! A quick Google search and a hardware store visit later I am happy to be able to show you how to make this unique tiki torch.

Items you will need:
- Empty wine bottle
- Adhesive Remover
- Decorative pebbles/marbles
- 3/8 washer
- Refill tiki torch wicks
- Tiki fuel

First, I took some wine bottles we had laying around and cleaned off the labels with some hot, soapy water and some adhesive remover.

Next, I found some extra glass marbles I had laying around and put then in the wine bottles.  I filled the wine bottle up about 1/4 of the way with them so the bottle would be nice and heavy to prevent blowing over in the wind.

Then, I took a 3/8 washer and thread an inch of a refill ticki wick through it.

After that, fill up your wine bottle 3/4 of the way with torch fuel.  I used OFF! Tiki Bitefighter Fuel which has citronella and cedar to keep mosquitos at bay!

And there you have it! Now you are ready to throw an outdoor party to show off your cute tiki torches!

I hope you guys enjoyed this tutorial! Our weather here in Cincinnati is just a tad too humid and hot to enjoy my tiki torches outside so I'm waiting for it to cool down just a tad! I hope you all have a great weekend!
