I like seeing the repurposing of almost anything, but even more so when the project is extra design worthy and is something I'd make for my own home. These small alcohol bottles have been refilled with lamp oil and their lids modified to hold wicks. It's a sweet project for any outdoor space, no matter how small.

These small bottles received grommets in their lids to hold the wicks taut and burning true, while a small base was constructed for the bottles to sit in. The look is simple and green.

Although many communities have glass recycling programs, there's nothing that says you can't upcycle those bottles first before giving it over to them. This has given me some serious inspiration for my next outdoor gathering!
