Wine Bottle Lights
DIY Wine Bottle Chandeliers
A chandelier doesn’t always have to be an expensive fixture. Check out the following images to see how some people made their very own chandeliers by using free wine bottles and a lot of creative ingenuity. You won’t only save money with a chandelier made of old and unused wine bottles but you will also attract the attention of whoever sees it because not everyone has one of these.
DIY Wine Bottle Lamp
Besides chandeliers, wine bottles can also be used to make custom table or floor lamps as you are going to see in the images below. In fact, creating a lamp from a wine bottle is even easier than creating a chandelier which will usually require more bottles, time and work to make it fully functional and safe.
DIY Wine Bottle Candle Holders
If you thought that the lamps made from wine bottles were easy, then you’ll be surprised as to how much easier it will be to make a wine bottle candle holder. Wine bottles are perfect for this because they are already open at the top, so you’ll only need to make a hole at the bottom for the candle to go in.
DIY Wine Bottle Decorations
The decorations usually speak for themselves. There aren’t many rules to follow when trying to make your own, custom decorations. All you need is creativity and a lot of empty wine bottles. You can use full wine bottles too but you’ll have to empty them and I wouldn’t suggest working with something so fragile in that case.
