Bottle Light Tutorial

My Aunt came and visited this summer and told me about this idea. I have been wanting to try it, so I finally got around to it! Things you will need:
1. Wine bottle or other glass bottle
2. Glass drill bit
3. lights small enough to fit through the whole you drilled with the drill bit

First I started with a really pretty wine bottle we have had on our shelf forever!

Next drill a hole in the bottle. I got glass/tile drill bits at lowes for $12. They came in four different sizes, and you have to start with the smallest and work your way up. After the hole is drilled, pushin the lights through the hole.

Plug it in and you have a light!

  1. I think these are so cute! I have a bunch of old wine bottles in my kitchen and have been wanting to do something like this. I was most nervous about drilling the whole, but seems simple and not as expensive as I thought it would be.

  11. We have a whole line of wine bottles above our cabinets. This would be a great way to showcase them even at night. Wonder if I can convince my husband it is a good idea!
