Introduction: A Beer for Two Flames
When you wish to decorate a party, or add some interesting features at pub tables, you can use empty beer bottles and a pair of flames. Follow this simple tutorial to understand what I mean.
Step 1: Cut the Bottle
With an empty beer bottle you can make much more than trash it! If you don't believe me make a fast search on instructable! Indeed you can build beautiful tables or strange lamps. In most cases you have to drink the beer and cut the empty bottle. That is not difficult... to drink the beer, cutting it is a bit more complicated!
Step 2: The Lamp Plug
Find a black lamp plug. I used one for little E14 bulbs, which fits in the little bottle very well. If you had drunk a bigger beer you can use a common E27 plug.
Step 3: Connecting Wire
Connect the wire to the plug's screws, and tight them hard, since they will keep the lamp hung to the ceiling.
Step 4: Flame Bulbs
I bought some beautiful flicker flame bulbs. Those run at 120 or 220 V and consume very low current. They really appear as a flame and people will be attracted by that beautiful effect.
The only question is hot to avoid the flame in the bottle to stay upside-down... all the same it's nice to see.
Step 5: Light the Fire
Now you can hung up the beer bottle, turn on the light, and light a candle in the bottom of the bottle. In that way you have two particular gadgets from a single piece of garbage.
