    Default Re-purposing old syrup bottles.

    Each year, we have a few customers return their empty bottles to us for recycling. Since we do not re-fill used bottles, we came up with this instead. Some copper plumbing fittings, copper paint, a fiberglass wick, and some citronella oil. Our spin on the tiki torch.

    Those look awesome, I may have to borrow that idea as I only have a few outlets to play with for lighting.
    Wonder if you could add coloring to make it look like you are burning syrup for fuel.
