Real talk: you choose the wine by the label, then promptly toss it into the recycling bin after the goods are consumed. Seems like kind of a waste, doesn’t it?

After all, the bottles can be serious works of art (not looking at you Two Buck Chuck)—but displaying them on your counter will make you look like a hoarder at best, and a wino at worst.

Enter Kinkajou Bottle Cutting and Candle Making Kit: the DIY kit for people who have always considered themselves super DIY (but like, not in the go to the craft store sort of way). The easy-to-use kit essentially repurposes your wine bottles, beer bottles, liquor bottles (okay, any glass alcohol bottles) into glasses or candles.

The nifty tool cuts the bottles precisely to be used as a glass and includes a candle making set for turning them into beautiful homemade soy candles. They also make great gifts for the holiday season if you’re looking to stick to a budget.
