Beer Bottle Torches

I saw this post on Design*Sponge a while ago and knew it was something I’d have to try. Mike recently got a new fence put up, and I thought these would be a perfect addition to the new backyard. Since we’re beer people, we went with 22oz. beer bottles instead of wine bottles. A few craft breweries (namely Rogue and Stone) make this size bottle with very cool labels printed right on the bottles, instead of the traditional paper label.

The hardest thing about this project was finding the materials. I visited no fewer than 3 Home Depot’s, plus a Lowe’s and a few local mom and pop hardware shops, and there were a few pieces I needed that none of the employees could even name. I ended up having to order two of the pieces (the plate connector and the split ring hanger) online (the hangers I had to order twice because the size they suggest in the original tutorial didn’t work for my bottles). But once we had all of our supplies, the assembly was really easy and quick. I think these are going to make our backyard cook-outs even better! You know, assuming the temperature ever drops below 100 degrees here in Memphis.

No full tutorial here, since the original one is really, really good, but here are a few process pics and the finished product:

The assembled wicks

Cutting the threaded rod. Note the look of determination. And the crazy hair.

Hanging the hangers.

Filling the bottles.

Five of the six finished bottles, about to be hung.

Torches hung…

…and lit!

New fence + new torch = fire hazard?? LOL

They look great!

We have considered the fire hazard problem! Pretty much crossing our fingers and hoping for the best (but keeping a fire extinguisher handy at all times)!
