How To: DIY Bottle Lamps

 

 

Bottle lamps are quite possibly the best introduction to lamp-making. Most people have a (very healthy) respect for electricity and are reluctant to mess around with the wiring. Bottle lamp converter kits, however, provide an easy and low-risk way to make your own lamp base with something you probably already have around the home: wine or liquor bottles.



We've collected some of the best DIY bottle lamp tutorials from around the web to give you some pointers and inspiration.
