these can not be hung in high wind areas as the glass is very thin and they will break

Please explain cutting the bottles with string & fingernail polish. I used to have one of those cutting devices, but never did master the technique of cutting them & gave it away.

How to cut a bottle using household items! - YouTube

be sure to use cotton thread and I found if I wrapped mine about 10 to 12 times and soaked it for a few mins I got good smooth results depends alot on the thickness of the glass and I also hold my bottle with the neck downward it heats the bottom and breaks more even there are a couple of ways to do it on youtube

Yes Coll, I would do it outside too.. I hate the smell of nail polish remover anyway plus with heating it would make the smell worse besides breathing fumes from it.
