This recycled wine bottle torch is so simple and elegant, and yet made entirely from stuff you can get at the hardware store. (Thanks, Katie Wilson!)

    I really, really want to make these please help me find a place to buy the Copper Top Plate Connector and the 1″ Split Ring Hanger. Home Depot has the rest of the supplies, but I can’t find these two items in store or on-line.
