Light your patio and keep the bugs away with these quick, easy, and attractive bottle lamps.
bottles (beer, wine, liquor, soda, whatever)
tiki torch wicks
2 - 1" wood screws
pipe mount hardware (I had to go to a construction supply store as opposed to the average hardware store for these, but the guy at the hardware store told me where to find them.)
2" threaded rod (that fits the pipe mount hardware) I bought a 12" rod and cut it into 6 pieces with a hacksaw.
large wood bead (This is optional but makes the hardware more attractive.)
1/2" - 3/4" copper coupling
aluminum tape (maybe-depending on the size of your bottle)
Step 1: Mounting Hardware
1. Mount the plate
2. Screw the bead onto the middle of the rod. Some of my beads gave me trouble wanting to go onto the rod. If you screw the rod into the plate and then put the bead on while it's mounted, it will go on easier. This bead is decorative, but it also acts as a nut to keep the rod and bracket from swiveling if it is put on tightly.
3. Screw the bracket onto the rod.
