How to make a lamp with your favorite bottles.

Step 1: Materials

In this case I will use these materials, but can be changed depending on the bottle and the style you want.
You can any type of bottle.

1- 1 Small Bottle of 2L or the bottle that we want.

2- 1 Tulip (Screen) of the desired color and choosing the size according to the bottle that we have chosen.

3- 1 Cable with switch (Color black if the bottle is dark, white if transparent).

4- 1 Cap, I recommend an E14 and black color if the chosen cable is black, white if it is white⚠OJO⚠ It must have a thread like the image to be able to put the tulip.

5- 1 ∅ 3 mm hollow threaded rod. (Can be found in an electricity shop).

6- Cork or synthetic cap, (I recommend synthetic as the image 4 white background). Their measurements will be according to the diameter of the nozzle of the chosen bottle.

7- 1 ∅ 9 mm Glass Drill Bit.

Step 2: We Prepare the Bottle

1- We encintamos the point where we want to realize the orifice forming an asterisco so that the drill does not move.

2- Wet the drill bit in water so it will not get hot with friction.

3- We drill no more than 10 seconds in a row so that the drill bit and the bottle are not too hot.
⚠ IMPORTANT ⚠ Put the drill in the NEVER-HITCH screwdriver mode as it may explode the bottle.

4- Perform the process of images 2 and 3 successively until the hole is drilled (image 4) and do not drill followed as indicated in step 3.

I would only clean the remains.

Step 3: We Make the Connections

1- We make a hole in the plug of the diameter of the hollow rod.

2- We glue in the hole and insert the hollow rod halfway or so, letting it protrude slightly.

3- We passed the cable through the hole in the bottle (image 3), push it to the nozzle of the bottle.

4- Once passed through the bottle ⚠INTRODUCE THE CABLE FIRST ⚠ by the hollow rod stuck in the plug.

5- Remove the bush and screw it to the hollow rod that protrudes from the plug.

6- Connect the cable to the bushing, reassemble the bushing and insert the cap into the nozzle of the bottle with a slight force to cover it, remaining as the image 3.

7- We make the positioning of the tulip in the bush (for that reason it has to be like the image in step 1 "materials").

OPTIONAL: Add a rubber grommet or insert hot silicone between the perforated glass and the cable to prevent it from moving (image 4).

    Drilling the bottle out in the open as shown is EXTREMELY DANGEROUS!!! It should at least be in a protective barrel to contain explosive fragments and protect the drillers legs and body. The person holding the drill should have on at least elbow length heavy leather gloves and a full face and neck shield. And 5 seconds drilling before re-wetting every thing would probably be better. And taking the bottle to a professional glass shop so they can put the hole in it would be even better. It would probably only cost a few bucks but would definitely be more safe.

    Also, once you get the bottom cord in place, before you plug the top - you can put stuff in the bottle to hide the cord, make bottle label show up better, add decorative value, etc as long as it fits through the bottle neck.

    Obviously with gloves I could not take pictures, but anyway sand is created and does not jump. In these small bottles is not dangerous, Thank you
