People all over the world are planning outdoor parties for the Kentucky Derby. And The Home Depot's Scott Krueger and Joe Autry have two inspired ideas for hosts who want to make an impression. They're showing us how to make a mint tree for all those juleps. Plus they have an easy DIY project that recycles old liquor bottles to light up your deck or backyard.
Bourbon bottle tiki torches
Clean and empty wine or liquor bottles
Tiki Torch wick refill
Citronella lamp oil
3/8″ metal washer, to fit the opening of bottle
Decorative glass rocks, beads, marbles (find this at the Dollar Store…trust us)
Pour decorative stones into the bottom of bottle, pour at your discretion, but remember that the more you have the less oil will be needed.
Feed wick through opening of washer, about 1/4, but before doing that make sure washer fully covers the opening of the bottle.
The last thing you want is a smoky tiki.
