You might want to remove the stem from a wine glass for some crafting projects. Create teacup wine glasses, wine glass candle holders and other crafts that use either the top or bottom of a wine glass by recycling old or cracked wine glasses. Wine glass crafts can turn out well when the stem is removed properly.

Lie the glass down on its side on a work surface.

Put on protective goggles and gloves to protect yourself from glass shards.

Score the stem with a glass/bottle cutter right underneath the base of the glass, turning it slowly while making the cut. Stay steady and keep the cut even to prevent any rough, uneven glass edges.

Tap the glass gently against a hard surface to dislodge the stem from the bowl of the wine glass.
