DIY: bottle lamp



I decided to get crafty as I had 5 days off work - this was my first project, I absolutely adore it. Someone on my tumblr requested I make a "how to" after I posted it on Instagram so here goes...

WHAT YOU WILL NEED

- A glass bottle (A mason jar works just as well), I bought mine from IKEA
- Fairy Lights


HOW TO

- thread your fairy lights though the opening of the bottle
- you can drill a hole at the bottom of your jar for the wires to come out of, but i chose mine to come out of the top
- turn the switch on
- voila. thats it, easy peasy, a 2 minute job at the most



this is a simple and cheap yet lovely idea you can use almost everywhere in your home. the fairy lights are actually strong enough to light a whole room and be used as a lamp, i absolutely adore it. enjoy!
