My mother, then I, used to make then for Christmas season, tying narrow green ribbon around twice with a bow at top and a long ribbon to hang them with.

Cool.

On year I stuck cloves in an orange, but nothing as beautiful as that. I love the idea of carving into the peel.

A teacher at work showed this today and the first thing I though was to share it on WG. Your thread reminded me to do just that.

What do you use to remove little strips of orange peel like that? They're gorgeous. The rock rugs were incredible too.

For those who can cut glass and drink wine, this looks cool!

And you could put Modge-podge on the labels so they wouldn't come off~

I did a search on Youtube for "drilling glass bottle" and got some hits. One looked interesting but it seemed to be selling a product, so I'll just let you explore the site yourself if you are interested.

One guy cut a wine bottle in half which was cool.

Several times, we've gone to craft shows that have "melted"/flattened wine bottles that are used as cheese trays. I guess there are a lot of creative people out there.
