Hello everyone!!!

This will be my first Instructable ever (Proof, I just added Instructable to the auto correct dictionary ^.^)

Being in my early 20's, I find myself at parties from time to time where great memories are made. Some memories more memorable than others! (or more forgettable >_<) SO, when thinking of a gift idea for a friend that lives in another country, I wanted to give them something to remember the crazy wild times we had here in the U.S. forever!

Enter RUMPLE MINZE! This guy never seems to fail in the *creating memories* department, so this was the bottle of choice... for so...sooo many reasons. Er'herm but continuing, I looked all over the internet for different ideas on how to do this and make it special. I came upon Instructables for the first time and saw some cool ideas, but they really came in handy for the fabrication aspects. It was on etsy that I saw the look I was going for. Credit goes to BodaciousBottles for the idea, though they don't explain at all how its made, which is why I'm here to explain how I got something similar.

This Instructable will detail my process of adding a light reflective flare to the inside of a(ny) bottle with a 16 color changing LED under it as illumination.  This is a very straight forward design that anyone can do.  The wood base was an artistic touch that I personally wanted to obtain, making this more a piece of art;  Though anyone can make a simplified base to streamline the project.

Lets get Started!

Edit**. Added two more I made for this Christmas!

Step 1: Preperation

I planned everything out almost completely before starting because I wanted this to be cheap and done right the first time.
Total cost was about $19 assuming you have the wood treatment lying around and buy the electronics like I did. (it was a gift I didn't want to use garbage)


o Liquor bottle of choice
o Broken up glass/ Diamond dust http://www.amazon.com/Floracraft-Diamond-Dust-Crystal-Twinklets/dp/B001682AZI/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1368246568&sr=8-1&keywords=diamond+dust
o Adhesive with liquid consistency/ Glitter-It http://www.beaconadhesives.com/cgglit.html OR Mixture of floor wax, Elmers glue, thinner (3:2:1 approximately)
o Thick Squishy double sided tape

Wood Base__

o Detailed drawing of  design
o Wood log (White Birch)
o White wood stain
o clear wood wax coat
o polyurethane coat
o gold vinyl paper

o 16 color changing LED with remote http://www.amazon.com/Multi-color-Changing-Spotlight-Control-Standard/dp/B0067H5GPY/ref=sr_1_9?ie=UTF8&qid=1368247267&sr=8-9&keywords=mr16+color+changing+LED
you can also use the strips, but this was cheaper
o MR 16 connector socket http://www.amazon.com/GrayBean-MR16-Light-Socket-10-Pack/dp/B005I4J1D0/ref=sr_1_2?s=hi&ie=UTF8&qid=1368247339&sr=1-2&keywords=mr16+connector
o in-line switch
o Power adapter (100V-240V In, 12V 1Amp Out)
<p>Hello, I want to make one of these and have a few questions. Could i use a wooden box for the base ? Could you possibly make a video on frosting the bottle ? ( I got real confused on the frosting part :/</p>
