Introduction: Hanging Liquor Bottle Candle Lamp

You might have seen something like this at craft stores or flea markets but heres how to make one for yourself.


Wine/Liquor/Beer Bottle

A Tea Candle

Coat hanger or wire


Electrical Tape

Step 1: Get Started

So you want to finish off the liquid in your bottle of choice and then recover from the hangover after you are done. 

After that cut the bottom base of your bottle off. There are many ways to do this just search on or watch the video below:

skip to about 5 minuets in and he'll show you how to do it.

Step 2: Bending and Connecting Wire to Candle

Now get 2 pieces of fairly thin wire (easy to bend) about 2 inches longer than the bottle and bend about 1/2 inch of the tip at a 90 degree angle.

Then take the Tea Candle and put the wire on opposite sides of each other with the bend under the candle and wrap some electrical tape around it a few times.

Step 3: Everything Together Now

Now that you have all of your pieces ready grab the two ends of wire and bring them together. Push them through the neck of the bottle and twist them carefully around each other a few times leaving at least two inches still straight.

Put a few washers on it like in the picture to stop the candle holding wires from falling out of the neck.

Bend one end down and stick it back in the neck of the bottle and then make a hook end out of the other end. Then you have it!

Just pull the bottle up while holding on the wires to light your candle. 

Step 4: Taa Daa!

You can do this with basically any bottle as long as you have a way to cut it.
