Cork-y and Bright: How to Make Your Own Bottle Lights

Bottle lights are becoming increasingly popular, and more businesses are selling kits and tools to help you make your own. It’s not just that cork lights can make people happy and brighten up a room; it’s also that they’re ridiculously simple to make and can be done by anyone. Whether you want to hang them from the ceiling or spread them around a room, these bottle lights with cork are sure to bring light and life wherever you place them! Here’s how you do it.

To begin, rinse the bottles with water and dish soap before wiping them down with a green scrubber. Cleaning the bottle in this way gets rid of any annoying labels or grime that may have accumulated there. Gather the materials you’ll need for your project next. You may want a few extra pieces of cork for mistakes or in case you want to make more than one light. You’ll also require a drill, silicone sealant, and super led lights. Cut the strips of cork about 1 inch wide and 6 inches long. Apply a generous amount of silicone sealant to the bottom edge of each strip where it touches the bottle neck. Position the strip across the mouth of your bottle so that when you put it on top, it will be flush with both sides and not stick out. Gently press down on the strip to secure it. Make four vertical holes in the top of the bottle’s cork, allowing the liquid inside to drain. To ensure that your wiring and switch have adequate space, one hole should be placed directly across from another hole.

The opening must be precisely sized so that the wire from the LED strip can be inserted into it without dangling. Once you’ve drilled a hole large enough for the wire, insert one end of the wire until about an inch of wire remains on either side of the bottle. Then wrap some electrical tape around both ends of the wire until it’s secure and sealed tightly inside. Next, take another piece of electrical tape and place it across where there are two wires protruding from one end. Stretch your LED strip lengthwise down the length of the cork before securing it with more pieces of tape on top of this piece of electrical tape. Finally, feed the other end of the wire back up through the bottle’s original hole and seal it off with more tape pieces on both ends. Viola: You now have a gorgeous set of cork-bottle lights that will illuminate any room in style!

Buying a kit is probably the easiest way for beginners. However, if you are crafty enough to make your own wine bottle into a lampshade, then there are lots of different projects out there that will be perfect for you.
