All you need – empty wine bottle!
Lamp from a wine bottle.
Lamps of wine bottles great choice not only for your home, but will be a cool gift.
First, choose a wine bottle. The warmest light gives, of course, a brown glass, and it will be perfect for the night-light. For a lamp is best suited garland with only yellow lights, or any other color, for example, for blue bottle suitable blue lights.
Wrap dry bottle at the bottom of masking tape in several layers. It is necessary to drill a hole in the glass, not split it into pieces. The drilling speed should be average, and drill – wet. Thus drill ten minutes, until the hole is sufficiently broad for passing garlands of light bulbs.
When you have finished drilling, remove the tape. Grab a pencil, wrap it in sandpaper, poke a hole in the wall and process, then just treat edge.
Now you can start to push through any lights in the bottle, or decorate it with drawings. To do this, use the transparent stained glass paint. Painted bottles create an even more interesting effect.
The last phase of the work – to put lights in a bottle and leave the wire coming out of the hole. Try to keep the lights uniformly distributed over the bottle.
