Holiday Sparkle | Upcycled Bottle Serving Trays

What do you get when you take a plain, clear wine bottle and add a half a teaspoon of sparkly mica powder into it and heat it up in the kiln until it is flat?

You get an amazing upcycled serving tray!

Sassy Glass Studio finally found a use for all the clear wine bottles that were getting a bad rap for not being 'pretty' enough to be made into serving trays, cheese boards, trivets, spoon rests or whatever you want to call them. The photo below shows the first bottles to receive some sparkly shine. There is one each of gold, bronze and reddish pink. More or less mica can be added to the bottle for different effects. More of these bottles will be created and will be available for sale at the Market Square Farmers' Market, Holiday Market, and in the Etsy shop very soon. These bottles will be $20 each. Regular sized wine bottles without mica are $15 and small bottles are $15 with mica and $10 without mica.

These trays are the perfect gift to give for anniversaries {gold, silver and bronze mica are available}, hostess gifts, weddings, and of course, Christmas. Discounts are available for order of ten or more bottles {plain or mica}.

Clear bottles with mica powder added prior to flattening in the kiln are a great gift idea!
