The first step is removing all the labels from the bottle before scoring it with a glass cutter all the way around, moving the line higher or lower depending on how tall you want your glass. 

Next, place the bottle in a bowl and alternative pouring boiling and ice cold water over the bottle. 

This should cause the bottle to break in half where the line with the glass cutter was drawn, leaving you with the bottom half of the bottle to turn into a glass.
