Step 1: Gather the materials and tools
Empty Wine Bottle
Light Bulb (make sure it will fit in the bottle) I used a small 60 Watt equivalent CFL but would try 30-40 Watt equivalent next time.
Small Flat Tip Screw Driver
Box Cutter (exacto knife would be better)
Dremel with Carbide Blade
2 X Handi Clamps
Small Torch (bought for $20 at Lowes)
Sandpaper, coarse and fine
Step 2: Disassemble the Lamp
-Separate the socket from the base of the lamp. (Pic 1)
-Remove the protective cover over socket. May have to use the screw driver if your lamp is as old as mine was. Don't worry about ruining the brass finish either as the entire assembly will be inside the wine bottle when you're finished. (Pic 2)
-Mark one wire and the terminal it is connected to. This is to ensure proper reassembly later and may or may not be necessary depending on your lamp. (not pictured)
-Unscrew the wires from the terminal and pull out through base of the lamp (may have to remove a knot in the wire first). (Pic 3)
-Discard the body of the lamp.
