Wine Bottle Torches

It rained all day last Sunday. It was a perfect day for working on torches on the patio. I robbed the bottle tree for a few choice wine bottles. We bought the supplies at Lowe's.(The ceiling flange, split ring hanger, cap, reducing coupler, and teflon tape were all in the plumbing department.) Not shown is the torch fuel and spray paint we used to paint the ceiling flange and the threaded rod. We also needed a hacksaw, screwdriver, and pliers. You can find a full tutorial here. It would have been nice to have a bench vise to hold the rods while cutting them with the hacksaw. (That was definitely my husband's job.) He did most of this project. I wrapped the reducing couplers with the teflon tape for a snug fit in the wine bottle and filled them with torch fuel.

So far, we have two on the patio and one on the front porch.
Y'all come back,
