How To Make A Wine Bottle Tiki Torch


Your outdoor event requires a little bit extra to really impress your guests? Did you run out of little decoration tricks you could implement in order to improve the design and ambience of the event you are organizing? Here is a quick and simple solution you can whip out, especially if the event itself is held in the evening or at night: DIY Wine Bottle Tiki Torches. A popular decoration for many events, torches can cast some light at the table, as a centerpiece, or in some corner of the bar or at the entrances to the yard. Transforming regular wine bottles into impressive Tiki torches is simple and requites a few things, like lamp oil and metal washer, not to mention the obvious empty wine bottle and the torch wick refill. Some decorative beads or glass rocks can be used to embellish the whole thing; be careful they are small enough to fit inside the bottle through the opening. Read the step by step tutorial so the final result is similar to the one you see in the pictures. Your event will look and feel much better!

You’ll need:

1 empty and cleaned wine bottle
Tiki Torch Fuel
Tiki Torch Replacement Wick
1/2” x 3/8” Copper Coupling
Teflon Tape (1/2”)
Decorative glass rocks or beads

    My brother recommended I would possibly like this
    web site. He was entirely right. This post actually made my day.
    You cann’t believe just how much time I had spent for this information! Thanks!

    I don’t see the step-by-step tutorial you mention; was hoping it would explain what the Teflon tape is for. I think I understand the coupling’s purpose, just not sure about the Teflon tape.

    • James says:

      The tape would likely be to wrap around the glass bottle in the area where the copper coupling attaches to the bottle’s neck.

  3. Cathi says:

    I think the Teflon tape goes around the bottle neck before you put on the copper coupler

    Amen to the above. No tutorial in site. ;-(

  5. Rob says:

    i would guess the teflon is to wrap around the neck of the bottle to reduce contact with the bracket

    1. Drink wine in bottle
    2. Pour torch oil into empty wine bottle
    3. Put wick into oil
    4. Light on fire
    5. Repeat 1-4 each time you want a new torch
    6. Gain some common sense and stop requiring Simone to home your hand

      Well, erm, if you say that there is going to be a tutorial and you don’t put one – including for instance, the very important detail of what you put in the bottle whether it be white spirit, oil or lighter fuel – then you aren’t doing what you said you would do at the top of the page.
