After seeing a similar wine holder selling for more than R1000 online, Rachelle from Adventures in Creating realised that she could do the same - at a fraction of the cost!
She used a Dremel MultiTool, with a cutting disk, but you can use a mitre- or hack-saw to do the same.
- After sanding and wiping the pipes down, the pipes are ready. Rachelle used a combination of screws and epoxy glue made specifically for plastic.
- Before assembly, mark the pipes and drill to allow for screwing together with small nuts and bolts.
- Apply the epoxy glue where the pipes join and then screwed it together.
- Join them in such a way, that the nut end is in a smaller pipe and can be held with a pair of pliers. The glue helps hold the pipes together.
- Leave the glue to cure for the specified time before getting ready to paint.
- To finish off, spray with a couple of light, even coats of Rust-Oleum 2X in your choice of colour.
