How to Make Bottle Lights That Are Both Corky and Brilliant

Bottle lights have become increasingly popular, and more businesses are offering kits and tools to create them yourself. 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 hang them from the ceiling or scatter them around the room, these cork bottle lights will add light and life wherever you place them! This is how you do it.

To begin, wash the bottles with water, dish soap, and a green scrubber. This aids in the removal of any unwanted labels or dirt from the bottle’s surface. Gather the materials you’ll need for your project next. Having some spare cork on hand in case of mishaps or for making additional lights is a good idea. You will also need super led lights, silicone sealant, and a drill. Cut the strips of cork about 1 inch wide and 6 inches long. Apply the silicone sealant liberally on the bottom edge of each strip where it touches the bottleneck. Place the strip across the mouth of your bottle so that when you place it on top, it will be flush with both sides and not protruding past either side. 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 allow enough room for your wiring and switch, one hole should be directly across from another.

The opening must be precisely sized so that the wire from the LED strip can be inserted into it without dangling. Once you’ve made a hole large enough for the wire, poke one end of the wire into the hole until about an inch remains on either side of the bottle. Wrap electrical tape around both ends of the wire until it’s secure and tightly sealed inside. Next, take another piece of electrical tape and place it across where there are two wires protruding from one end. Place a strip of electrical tape along the cork’s length, then lay your LED strip on top of the tape and secure it with additional 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 lovely set of cork-bottle lights that will elegantly illuminate any room!

Buying a kit is probably the easiest way for beginners. However, if you are crafty enough to turn your own wine bottle into a lampshade, there are numerous projects available that will be ideal for you.
