Wine Bottle Lights
Have you ever bought a bottle of wine simply because it looked good? Or, having finished the wine itself, remarked on how unique and beautiful the bottle is? Great care is often taken with wine bottles to produce an eye-catching and stunning design, something that stands out from the hundreds of bottles around it and jumps out at the customer.
These bottles, whether quirky or elaborate or simply pretty, are perfect to add cozy warmth to your room. Christmas lights are small enough to be able to feed into a wine bottle, and when the light shines through the dark glass, it dims it, turning the bright light into a muted warm glow.
A simple combination with near-limitless potential, wine bottle lights are easier to create than you might think. There are two ways to go about making them: you can drill a hole in the bottle, or, if they are small enough, you can feed the lights in through the mouth of the bottle itself. If you opt for the latter, of course, you might want to cover the cable with some sort of decoration. Ivy, grapes, flowers -- the only limit is your imagination.
Be careful if you opt to drill through the glass, though, because if you are too firm it could shatter. Make sure you wear protective gloves and glasses or goggles to shield your eyes from small flecks of glass, should it break.
The soft glow a wine bottle light display gives off can vary greatly depending on the color of the lights used. Try experimenting with different effects and combinations to get the best results.
