Introduction: Coke Bottle Sputnik Lamp
Step 1: Gather Your Bottles
You will need 12 glass coke bottles for this Instructable, so get drinking.
You will also need:
Black acrylic 3mm
Step 2: Fire the Laser Cannon
Using suitable software draw out 12 pentagons, these will need 2 stitch holes on each side and a joke in the centre big enough to get the bottle top and neck through. I made mine from 3mm black acrylic.
I made my lamp in 2 halves. Push a bottle through each acrylic pentagon, secure with a zip tie and smoother the end in glue gun glue.
Repeat this 5 more times.
Step 3: Zip Tie Stitching
Using the zip ties fasten 6 of the pentagons together, start the ties off loose and gradually tighten them all up.
Step 4: 2 Become 1
You should repeat this process until you have two equal side of your lamp or a top and bottom.
Next take you fairy lights and work out how many you need to shove into each bottle to get a nice even glow.
Step 5: Insert the Fairies
Carefully start to thread your lights into each of the bottles until all the lights are gone.
Niw is the tricky part, fastening the 2 halves together. Carefully thread the zip ties into the holes and start to tighten the 2 halves together, once tightened your lamp should be complete. Trim all the zip ties down and find a dull corner that needs some gentle illumination.
