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 empty 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, watch our glass bottle project videos to learn how, assembling the Jack Daniels Bottle Lamp was a snap.
The first time I put the newly purchased lamp shade on the Jack Daniel’s bottle, I plugged it in and stepped back to examine the look of the bottle lamp. I liked it, but…
The exposed cord inside the bottle just didn’t look right. The empty bottle was too light weight and top heavy. It was bound to tip over as soon as someone bumped it.
To remedy the situation I went with gold colored marbles the color of the previous content, wonderful rich flavored liquor. Not only did these marbles do a great job of hiding the cord but also gave the illusion of the bottle still being filled with said liquor.
The added weight from adding colored, flat marbles provided much needed stability to the bottle lamp. Dashington® Flat Yellow Marbles are available on Amazon for $18.99 (5 pound bag).
