One of the things I find it most difficult to part with is glass bottles. I'm not sure why, precisely. They just seem to hold so much potential... So, when my Mom told me about a lamp she'd seen that was made with a wine bottle, I was both impressed by the idea and excited to have a good excuse to keep my wine bottles.
The idea's been floating around in the back of my head ever since, but I've never gotten around to trying it. Mostly because I just wasn't entirely sure how to proceed. Well, lo and behold, as I was perusing Totally Tutorials today (which, by the way, is an awesome blog and you should go follow them now), I just happened to come across this tutorial for a wine bottle lamp. How cool is that? I especially love the way they've set the whole thing up with the glass and the grapes. Bonus: This would give me an excuse to buy some of those awesome frosty/sparkly grapes they have at Walmart. Yay!
I think it might also be possible to make an oil lamp with a wine bottle. Which would, in my opinion, be even cooler. Anyone know anything about this? Or have you made anything else with bottles? Leave a comment!
