How To Make Bottle Lights *DIY Wine Bottle Light*




What do you think about this video?

Nick Jager: Have you seen all of the great comments on this video? Take a look. #diycrafts #bottlelamp 

Nick Jager: Mary, If you use regular Christmas lights you will experience some heat accumulation. For someone who's planning on running the bottle lights longer I would recommend LED light strings. This lights give off no heat and use less energy. The only downside is the cost. LED lights will be a little more expensive.

Margartvl K: Love this idea! Easy idea - Would be great for Christmas or Halloween! 

Marisol Anthony: Make my bottles lol I'll try this!!! Thanks a lot!

Fitra Fadila: cooollll (y)

Gary Lee: I thought you said Mick Jagger!

Petie Wheatstraw: Wheres your gloves?

Judith Yoma: Help!! I've tried drilling 4 bottles and all of them have shattered. What am I doing wrong. I am using Bosch glass and tile bits. 

Wendy Thompson: Awesome. I've just started making these and I love the crystal idea. I'm using diamond tip drill bits because I read they will last longer. How many bottles do you get out of your tips? I saw those too and wondered if they would work?

Jack Fitzgerald: Hi Nick, very nice video. I managed to successfully drill a hole. How large is your largest drill bit? I used a 5/16 inch and it is not large enough for the lights to go through. Thanks.,

Laura van Leeuwen: Won't sugar do the exact same thing as the crystal?

Antonio Bruno: The video is great, but I would like to point out one safety point for those trying to do this for the first time. BE SURE TO WEAR SAFETY GOGGLES AND LEATHER GLOVES!. If the bottle has any unknown flaws, there is a good chance that during the process there would be a shatter. If this occurs, severe lacerations, and/or eye damage is a real possibility.

MesserAaron13: You're also supposed to do this under water

kmariebox1: Isn't is necessary to be lubricating the bit with water as you're drilling?

TheRanhughes: My wife loves these!! They look easy to make. Thanks for posting this video...it was very informative!!!

Leticia Beam: these look great! This video is very informative on cutting holes in glass!

kden z: how do i make glass look crystallized?

swampbilly peek: This was really helpful, thanks!

Chase Christensen: What about when your lights burn out? Haha. Great video, thank you.

Shawna McMillon: Hi Nick, this video is so helpful. Thank you so much for posting this. i am for sure going to try this when I move into my new place. Where can I get the crystal film? Joann Fabrics, or michaels maybe? 

Kirsti Randall: What a great idea for 'christmas lights' in a bar!! Thanks for the tutorial Nick!

Mary H Nunez: Thank you for writing back so quickly. Will definitely try that. Have a good day!

Geri Kelly: hi nick, was wondering where you to purchase the light strands "off season" at a low cost. would be willing to purchase online to keep cost down. I cannot find any anywhere. any help would be very much appreciated. thanks, geri

Mary H Nunez: Hi Nick! Thank you for your video. We had no issues with drilling the hole, however on our strand of christmas lights of 25 about 18 are burning out, and the bottle is very hot after a short period of time being plugged in. What is the longest these lights should stay plugged in, will the crystal fill help? Just feels like it's overheated, not sure what I'm doin wrong. 

Jeane Williamson: I love this idea Nick...but how would it be if you used lights with the white cord when you fill it we with the white filler...then the cord wouldn't show. Just a thought. Gonna give this a try. Thanks. You know we make holes in bottlesd using a diamond hole bit which makes the hole...but you have to do it under r I nning water and it takes a while. I think what you are doing seems less time consuming and easier.

Norma McDonald: Nick, when drilling a hole in the wine bottles, is there at any point, you use water to keep the bottle cool from cracking?

Bonnie Wells: Where to you buy the crystal fill?

Dax Nayyar: Hi, Nick this is an awesome video and i got grt knowledge from this but i want to know that did you grab the bottle hardly or it was loose @ 2.22 minute..Thanks and sorry for bad English?

Geri Kelly: than you!

sHest013: Yup you've been doing this for awhile lol! I started closer to the bottom and one after the other, I switched the drill bits out! So I'm trying it now again. 

mauikim: Hi Love this video so far I've got 3 drilled it took less than 15 min, I did crack a few being too eager with the mallet but easily found my stride..How many lights per strand do you recommend for a wine bottle?? Thanks for your response.

Fisttotheface: Very nice video. My finished product http://www.etsy.com/listing/169302656/copper-ridge-wine-bottle-light-lamp

sHest013: Sorry. Yes I meant glass

Nick Jager: Shawna, I've had really good luck at Joann's. Let us know how things turn out, we have a DIY Show Off page on our Bottle-Lamp website!

sHest013: Alright...... I tried it and my glad broke :( so what am I doing wrong.. I took all the steps you showed 

reload26ny: Great video! I've wanted to make some for a few months, just wanted to wait until after Christmas, when the lights are discounted to about $1-$2. I had planned to search the web for a filler, now I don't have to. Thanks for saving me tons of time.

Mick Jäger: Nice work! Check on my Jäger Lamp on facebook and twitter. Keyword search JagerLamp , all one word.

sHest013: Do you have an email so I can show you this glass.. If that's okay with you.. Thanks, Shawna

Tennessee5006: LOL, sounded like he said ( Hi, I'm Mick Jagger) LOL

sHest013: Thanks so much for this video!! What number strand of lights do you use?

mike lewis: u should do one with all white lights and instead of that crystal fill use broken pieces of colored glass ( you can find at craft stores )! i bet it would look sweet!

Nick Jager: Thanks Mike! The pieces of broken glass would actually be fitting considering this is a recycle project.

msraider1500: I have tried a few times now to make one of these and I can't get past the drilling of the hole. I have tried twice now and the bottle has broken both times. I have watched your video over and over and have done exactly as you stated.... What am I doing wrong? Does the drill brand and sizes matter? If so, what size of drill bits do you use and is one brand better than another? Please help?

dolphin450: Yesterday I drilled 4 bottles outside in the yard. I used the garden hose to keep the glass dust down. One thing I also did was to wear a glove on the hand holding the bottle in case the bottle broke. Thank you for the video I enjoyed it. I was going to make wine bottle lamps of a different type but might change my thoughts and make this style of lamp. It's much easier. Thanks for the video.

Lvbites: Where did you find the Vampire bottle? I soooo want one of those. I would have however, used red lights.

mike lewis: u should do one with all white lights and instead of that crystal fill use broken pieces of colored glass ( you can find at craft stores )! i bet it would look sweet!

incavos: Great vid Nick. Thanks!

Nick Jager: teddydogification, If I were you I would just get the LED lights. No heat. We ran a few bottles with regular Christmas lights and crystal fill in them for an extended period of time (four weeks) non stop. The bottles got warm but never exploded. They did melt some of the crystal fill around the lights themselves. This is extreme and regular use would get these same results. For your peace of mind, go with the LED's. As an added bonus they're environmentally friendly!

SherlockJo: Safety, safety... where's your glove??? :) Thanks for the progression of bits that's a great idea.

thepkeezy: Wouldn't recommend touching that "glass dust" for those with sensitive and soft skin, it can be quite the irritant.
