How to Make Wine Bottle Lights

Make these stunning wine bottle lamps - perfect for romantic lighting
Author: Chloe Tuttle

Instructions

  • • Light green or blue wine bottle
    • 1/2-inch ceramic tile drill bit (each bit will drill 6-8 bottles)
    • Small piece of masking tape
    • Electric drill (battery ones just can't cut it)
    • 20-count tiny Christmas light set. You need the kind that has a plug on one end only, not the end-to-end kind. The best time to buy these is at Christmas, they are difficult to find otherwise.

  • Place a small piece of masking tape on the back of the bottle about 3 inches up from the bottom. Start drilling; don't use too much pressure, the bottle might break. The tape is to keep the drill bit from jumping around when you first get started.
    Be VERY careful; this is a slow process and is not to be attempted by impatient folks.
    Drill until the bit goes all the way through the glass. There will be glass dust in the bottle so you will have to rinse this out. Allow bottle to dry.
    Push each light into the hole that you have just drilled. This can be tedious and is not for the fainthearted. After all 20 are inside you are finished. Voila, it is gorgeous and magic!
