Showcasing industrial style lamps and a candle holder from discarded objects.
Sonny’s suggestion to fellow crafters is always try doing new stuff. He tells us that he gets most of his supplies on the internet and flea markets.
Before taking a look at the unique bottle lamps and candle holder pictures Sonny sent us for our DIY Show Off page, take a moment to like Sonny’s Metal Art page and check out his craft videos on Facebook.
Most of the bottles Sonny uses in his designs are liquor bottles.
How did you attach the skull to the base? The skull is held on by drilling a hole in the bottle top and putting in a threaded rod for lamps in the hole. Then I glue a fitting to the top and screw that into a pipe fitting. I find the top that is used in bars for poring liquor works great. You just need to remove the metal spout and insert a threaded lamp rod.
The following dual purpose steam punk lamp is not an old fashion radio like I thought, it’s some kind of electrical tester.
Do you know what kind of tester this is? Leave us a comment below.
And last, but not least, we have a cut bottle candle holder.
