Recycling Glass through Art

If you enjoy creating things, you may want to use the old glass you have on hand for a recycled glass art project. Here are a few ideas you may want to try.

  • Bottle Glasses – If you have wine or beer bottles lying around, you can turn them into glasses. You will need a safe way to cut the glass and a Dremel or glass sander to get the edges smooth.
  • Vintage Picture Frames – If you have old windows with the glass still in place, you can turn them into a beautiful picture frame. Paint the surrounding wood; then, place photos or prints in each smaller frame.
  • Unique Table Lamp – A wine bottle can make a unique lighted centerpiece for your table. Use a small brush and acrylic paints to paint a scene on the outside of the bottle. Add LED fairy lights to the inside of the bottle, and you have a unique table lamp.
