how-to-make-a-beer-bottle-glass

If you’re just out of college and living on your own, you might find yourself in a predicament that could drive you slowly insane. Should you be spending your money on responsible adult things like cups? Or should you spend all your money on beer? Well, what if I told you don’t you have to choose any more? Thanks to this handy guide, you can turn your glass beer bottles into all the cups you’ll ever need.

Check out the quick breakdown and video tutorial below:

Step 1: Noose It

Tie a string around the bottle you wish to turn into a cup. Make sure the bottle is thick and made of glass.

Step 2: Gas It 

Once the string is tied and knotted, take it off the bottle and soak it in lighter fluid.

Step 3: Burn It

After reapplying the string to the bottle, turn the bottle horizontally and light it on fire while turning the bottle slowly. This is to make sure the flame has an even distribution around the bottle.

Step 4: Wash it

After a few seconds you should start to hear it cracking, when this happens pour cold water onto the bottle and watch as the top falls off.

Step 5: Sand it

Once the top of the bottle has fallen off, you’ll want to use sandpaper and smooth that bottle out.

Step 6: Enjoy It

And there you go. Your broke self now has a way to officially get around buying cups.
