Interesting idea. Looks like a very fancy bottle stopper. I suppose if you aren't handy with a torch or soldering iron, you could make the arms out of bakable clay glued to a stopper. If anyone tries, please let me know.
One bump and it's "Flame On" at the party.... Looks so cool - but not too safe. Besides, after you drink the wine (you will, won't you? ) the bottle will be too light. Just sayin' -- things could get hotBOO!
I think it looks really creepy, especially if it had a potion or poison label instead of the wine label. I don't think there's any reason why you couldn't weight the empty bottle down with pebbles or something and use flameless candles
i found one of these at good will for $ .60! it was a great deal and works really well. i filled the empty bottle with water to make it steady and the cork top goes in nice and tight to prevent spilling!
Took another look at the wine bottle set up today and was thinking of taking a sturdy tree branch, laying it sideways and gluing to the cork. Then I could use voltive candle bases (painted black) to hold a battery taper and clue them to the branch. I'll let you know how it turns out when I do it.
