Welcome! This instructable covers how to make a Bottle-abra Accent Light.
This is also entered in the "DIY 2007 Halloween Contest" and the "Mash It Contest".
The idea of this light came from marc_alain
and his Small-eco-footprint-living-room-light
. In particular it was how soft the light was in his pictures that gave me the idea.
It was my thought "The Bottle-abra Accent Light" would create an Old Italian restaurant style atmosphere and I think it does. The videos just don't capture it as well as seen in person. The flicker flame bulb turned out great. There are many versatile uses for this lamp. You can create a spooky atmosphere, and old world Italian or Spanish restaurant look, a pirate ship look, a romantic interlude, or many other styles.
The video below is a condensed version of the steps take to make and assemble the Bottleabra.
