Wine Bottle Lights?

I am looking for directions with illustrations to make these for gifts. I do not want to cut the wine bottle.

We made these by putting the lights inside the bottle with the plug hanging out the top. Take the wine cork and cut a V out of the cork so that the plug cord can come out the top with the cork in the bottle. Usually these lights are placed on a counter close to a plug, so it works great and no drilling of glass!

Every Christmas I fill a gallon glass jar with Christmas balls, tinsel and a string of tiny Christmas lights. Then I stuff some green wrapping paper in the top and plug in the lights.

Here's a wine bottle version for you:

How do you fasten the "garnishes" to the bottle without the stems, etc showing?

Instead of having the cord come out the top of the bottle, I drill a 5/8" hole in the back near the bottom.


It is a simple task with a good diamond drill bit.

Here is another link to a How-To page that has lots of glass drilling tips:

I've made hundreds of different bottle lights and glass block lights over the years. They are very simple projects if you have the right drill bit.
