Make Recycled Bottle Crafts with DIY Instructions

Turn a Jack Daniels bottle into a Lamp

Nick’s brother Ben has a birthday coming up soon and his liquor of choice is Jack & Coke. So, we stopped at our favorite watering hole and asked them to save us the next empty Jack Daniels bottle.

With the bottle and the few other supplies we needed in hand, we started to put his birthday present together. Once the hole was put in the bottle, assembling the Jack Daniels Bottle Lamp was a snap.

The first time I put the lamp shade on, I plugged it in and stepped back to examine the look of the bottle lamp. The exposed cord inside the bottle just didn’t look right. The empty bottle was too light weight and top heavy. To remedy the situation I went with gold colored marbles the color of the previous content. Not only did it hide the cord inside but also gave the illusion of the bottle still being filled with liquor. The added weight provided stability to the bottle lamp.

      Kelsey,

      Did you get three different sized fittings for the opening with your kit? I’ve had bottles that didn’t quite fit the mold of what they sent me so I had to add some tape to them to make them fit more snug. I used ‘duct tape’ because it’s pliable and would conform to the opening better. Just make your tape strips the width of the fitting and add as much as you need to get the right fit.

      I hope this helps. Let us know how it turned out for you. We’ll showcase it on our ‘DIY Show Off’ page.
