Turning a wine bottle in to a night light is a fun project to do. It is easy and affordable and can be completed in a short period of time.
Step 1: ITEMS NEEDED
2. Glass drill bit.
3. White vineager or rubbing alcohol.
4. Dust free rag.
5. Acrylic enamel paint.
6. A tool to make polka dots with.
7. A strand of 20 lights that do not have an extension connection.
9. Oven (optional)
Step 2: DRILL HOLE
Step 3: CLEAN THE BOTTLE
Step 4: PLACE PAINT COLORS ON PLATE
Step 5: APPLY POLKA DOTS
At this time start with your first color. Dip your tool in to the paint and apply to the glass in a straight pounce method. Slowly remove the applicator to make sure a complete circle of paint was left behind.
Step 6: CONTINUE APPLYING PAINT
Step 7: BAKE
Step 8: ADD LIGHTS
Start at the opposite end from the plug. Place one light bulb at a time through the hole at the bottom of the bottle. I recommend holding the bottle upside down to encourage the lights to fill the entire bottle including toward the top. Continue this process until all of the lights have been added.
Step 9: LIGHTS HAVE BEEN INSTALLED
Once all of the lights have been installed you can either leave the hole open where the cord is coming out, or place a rubber ring around the cord and place in to the opening. This will stablize the cord.
Step 10: PLUG IN
Step 11: ADD LAMPSHADE
You are finished!
