  • Wool string
  • Nail polish
  • Corona bottle
  • Water
  • Ice cubes
  • Scissors
  • Kitchen lighter
  • Sand paper
  • Gloves

Fill your kitchen sink with cold water and ice. The process of cutting glass will be done on cold water.

Now, get the bottle of Corona and make sure it's empty, clean and dry (you can also use other beer bottles, wine bottles, alcohol bottles, coca cola bottles...)

Any bottle will work as long as it is empty and made of glass.

Now is the moment when you'll be cutting the bottle. Be careful because this part can be quite complicated. First of all you should put on gloves, to avoid any burns or cuts.

Fill your kitchen sink with water and ice and do all this procedure on top of the sink. Get the beer bottle by the neck and hold a kitchen lighter on the other hand. It is important that you use a kitchen lighter since these have a longer neck. Do not use a normal lighter or you could burn.

When you have everything ready light the wool string.
