From the liquor store to your side table.
For Christmas last year one of my best friends Phaedra decided she wanted to make a wine bottle for her mom and a Johnny Walker bottle for her dad into lamps. I had seen this a long time ago and read something about it and was totally GAME for the adventure.
We made a few.. here are the two I made.
It was quite an adventure making them and I sure learned ALOT during the process.
You'll go into a liquor store with new eyes next time!!

Get your drill bit ready. I recommend using a non-cordless drill. The first few bottles we tried we cracked I'm sure it was a 1:3 in favor of the busted bottles and we killed two batteries in half an hour. Yes.. TWO..
k your spot on your bottle with masking tape.
Make sure it's not too close to the bottle of the bottle as this could weaken the glass. Keep your drilling spot cool with water running from a watering can or hose. This will prevent heat fractures from the drilling.
Wrap the socket in electrical tape if it is too big to sit in the mouth of the bottle. Wrap it so you can push it in and it will stay put. Next wrap the tape tightly over starting with the first bit wrapping around the mouth of the bottle and any exposed metal bits up to the top of the socket.
