I have been noticing tutorial on how to make lights out of wine bottle since last fall, but we never have wine bottles. I saw a post in my local freecycle that someone was giving away a dozen bottles. I was very lucky to be the recipient of those bottles, don’t you love generous people !! I followed a few tutorials and they were ok, but the drill bits they were recommending didn’t seem big enough for the lights to go in smoothly and I was getting hairline splinters. I decided to figure it out on my own and write my own tutorial.
Cordless drill, water, safety glasses, plumbers putty, a bottle, a strand of lights (I use 20ct. plug on just 1 end) and a drill bit. I used this drill bit, I have several others, but this one rocks !!
A few things to remember, let the drill bit do the work, make sure that there is always water on the area your drilling, wear safety glasses, use a cordless drill, and start drilling at an angle. I hope the video helps 🙂 When you have completed the bottle, you feed the 1 ended plug lights into the bottle, plug in and enjoy !
