Great idea... Only thing I am going to change is swap out the PVC for copper pipe to make look a bit classier.

Just out of curiosity, with all the wires and mini light bulbs confined into a air tight space, would it pose a fire hazard? or are you using the new led mini lights?

Not led, only old style lights. I used 150 lights in it. After two hours, put hands on the bottle, only feel little warm but not too hot, the temperature is little bit higher than your hands but never feel burn. Up to now, it worked very well. By the way, I did little bit improvement to get it cheaper.

I like it! I already have lights in wine bottles, but this is much more clever than my modest idea to just put the lights into the bottle.
I keep this somewhere in my brain.
