One of the great things about the internet is that it allows us to find and meet like minded individuals who share our same passions and goals.
When we received an e-mail from Donald detailing his new found hobby I knew we had found another bottle lamp enthusiast. Then I got to see all the pictures he sent and saw that he had been very busy. Donald wrote:
When I decided to try making bottle lights I searched YouTube for videos on how to do it. When I ran across yours I found it to be the most helpful. I see my bottle light making like a new tv show. The first few were not that great but the more I make the better they are getting. New ideas and better ideas are coming to me all the time. Thanks for taking the time to teach me how to love my new hobby.
Using various fillers and different style recycled bottles, Donald has put together a very nice assortment of lamps!
The mosaic pattern on the top bottle of this collection will offer a nice consistent light pattern. Well done!
The Dr. Pepper bottle has the illusion of still being full of it’s original contents while the Coca-Cola bottle has it’s own unique filler.
Transforming an ordinary empty wine bottle with a light strand and some colored green gems into an accent piece that will compliment any room in your house.
We would like to thank Donald for sharing his Bottle Lamp projects with us. Keep making more lighted bottles, you have a great pilot episode here and a terrific series under way :)
