DIY Wine Bottle TIki Torches

Want to know what my weekend consisted of?

A whole lot of errands, cleaning, shopping, decorating, and DIY to get ready for someone's 30th birthday party next weekend. Don't worry. I won't bore you with any additional details on that errands and cleaning, but I do have a DIY to share with you.

Next weekend, we'll be spending a lot of time outside in the yard and need a little something to help with the mosquitos. Tiki torches to the rescue! But not just any tiki torches.

Wine Bottle Tiki Torches. Because Patrick, Chris, and I all needed a reason to stay in Saturday night to drink wine, eat pizza, and watch How to Train Your Dragon 2.

Wine Bottle
1/2" by 3/8" Reducing Coupling
Torch Wick Replacement
Plumber's Tape
Citronella Torch Fuel

1. Drink a bottle of wine {my personal favorite part of this DIY}
2. Soak wine bottle in warm, soapy water until it's easy to remove the label & remove the label.
3. Wrap the plumber's tape around the base of the reducing coupling until it fits snugly into the top of the wine bottle. Thread wick through the coupling and set to the side.
4. Fill wine bottle with small pebbles {about halfway up} and place the wick into the bottle. Add/remove pebbles as necessary so that the wick fits snugly into the top of the wine bottle and just touches the rocks at the bottom.
5. Remove the wick and fill up the wine bottle with the citronella torch fuel. Place the wick back in once complete.
6. Light it up!

Easy, right?

Hope y'all had a good weekend and did something more fun than errands and cleaning!
