Creative Get Togethers -Creating an Etched Wine Bottle Windchime

My friends and I recently came together for a creative crafternoon. We searched Pinterest for fun ideas. It was hard to choose, but finally decided on a wine bottle wind chime. I added a twist on the craft....etching!

Helpful hint: Pre-cut and sand the edges of your wine bottles several days before you are ready to etch them. 

I wanted to share with you a quick pictorial on how I created mine. The results are just magical!
