Step-by-Step Instructions

 

STEP ONE:

Clean and remove all labels from your bottle of choice. We used Goof Off to get the job done fast, but you could also just soak the bottle in hot soapy water and peel the labels off.

Remove the cap and drain the bottle fully. Our bottle also had an additional metal ring which needed to be removed.

STEP TWO:

Choose your adapter. Most bottle lamp kits come with one or several rubber adapters. Choose the adapter which fits best in the neck of your bottle. If the fit is not tight, you can later use super glue or hot glue to secure it properly.

Next, screw your chosen adapter onto the steel threaded pipe.

STEP THREE:

Following the steel threaded pipe, add your washer, exposing 1/4" of the nipple. Then add the check ring (the disc which will cover the top of the bottle) atop the washer.

 


STEP FOUR:

Using a screwdriver, loosen the set screw on the socket and screw it onto the 1/4 inch of exposed steel threaded pipe.

STEP FIVE:

You're now ready to officially turn your bottle into a light fixture!

Place the socket into the opening of the bottle, using the rubber adaptor to create a tight fit. Here is where you can add some super glue, or hot glue to provide additional strength.

Push the assembly down until only the socket cap is left showing.
