Introduction: Any Bottle Lamp Please

Following this series of steps, you will be able to take any glass bottle and transform it, into a cherishable lamp. Whether it be a pickle jar or an antique jar you'll be able to proudly display it. Giving light to all who see it.

Step 1:

Step 2: Drilling Continued

Step 3:

Step 4:

Step 5:

Step 6: All Done!

These are the three lamps I made, a couple things to keep in mind and perhaps improve on this instructable. You may notice most commercial lamps have their power cords entering through the bottom. To simplify and make life a little easier, I side drilled these glass bottles. However feel free to design a base, an ashtray for example would work great, but may look sloppy.

Fill your glass jars with glow in the dark trinkets, a pickle jar could contain a simulated ocean scene where the wires are dressed as an octopus tentacles. Happy Lamping!
