Whether you’re stuck inside during the hurricane with nothing to do but drink (and “work from home”), or just happen to have a whole bunch of empty bottles, you can make these easy projects even if the power goes out.
3. Make a lamp:
Cut a rectangular piece of newspaper that’s about twice as long as the bottle. Wrap and secure around the bottle and cut the remaining newspaper at the top into strips around 1 1/2 inches wide. Run the edge of a scissor blade firmly but gently along each strip in order to curl it. Acknowledge that you’ve gone a little insane if you’re already attempting to recreate living things out of your own garbage.
This project definitely requires sanding down the cut edges with an emery board or sandpaper, since you’ll presumably be bringing them near your face.
If your candle is too wide to fit in the neck of your bottle, melt the bottom of the candle with another one. Melting the wax slightly will also help it stick better.
And nothing says “I love you” like a gigantic heart made from remnants of all the booze you’ve consumed together. Just like the above project, start from the bottom and work your way up in rows.
