About this project
Who Are We?
We are Ted and Taylor, two lifelong friends. We created Glassed Over because we wanted to see something new and exciting come from discarded wine bottles. We have a history of tinkering and spending weekends building whatever we could think of. Now, we have a goal to build our company Glassed Over.
What are Glassed Over Wine Bottle Candles?
Well, what we do is we take empty wine bottles and cut off the tops. Then, we grind down the rim and edges so that they are as smooth as possible. Next, we pour 100% soy wax straight into what used to be a wine bottle, blending in a variety of fragrances that people love. The best part is that we can do this with almost any bottle we can find. We see this as one of the best ways to reuse any old wine bottle.
We believe that our products are a creative and amazing way to repurpose old wine bottles. We want to share our candles and glassware with everyone. But right now, we do not have the means to produce that much. We make each of our products individually by hand, and we want to keep it that way. But for this to happen, we need to raise money for the FIRST large scale production of our wine bottle candles. Right now, the demand for our candles is exceeding our production capabilities. So we are looking to raise money to reach our production GOAL of manufacturing our first run of 1000 candles using our new method. This will allow us to meet the demand of turning repurposed wine bottles into candles and glassware. If we can raise the funds for this production, we will be able to share all of our products with you.
So, our PLAN is to raise $8000 to cover the funds to expand our operation so that we can produce our first large scale run of our candles made from repurposed bottles. This money is going to allow us to make this big step in production. This will be the first time that we can manufacture our products on a large scale.
We are going to buy more glasswork machinery in order to cut and smooth more bottles. Also, we need to increase production aspects of the candle making process. This includes larger wax melters, heat lamps, and more production tables. We need all of these things to keep up with our goal to turn used wine bottles into something better and to get an amazing product in your hands.
We will ask your fragrance choice before we make your individual candles.

Glassed Over Label OR Authentic Wine Label?
When it comes to choosing your rewards, you can choose from our brand new Glassed Over Label (pictures 2 & 3) OR you can choose to receive an Authentic Wine Label.
By choosing Authentic Wine Label, you will receive a candle made from a bottle that still has its original wine label on it. Just like the candles seen in our video and in picture 1.
Before we send your rewards, we will contact you to find out exactly what you want!
Risks and challenges
The challenges for this project include getting the word out about the Glassed Over products and telling the world how cool these products are. The more support we get, the better job we can do. We want the means to produce enough products to keep up with our demand but we can go much larger than that. The possibilities for repurposing wine bottles for candles and glasses are endless!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
