Make a Wine Bottle Night Light

Things You'll Need

  • 1 Foot Of Ribbon, Lace Or Tulle
  • 30-Count String Of White Or Colored Lights
  • Glass Stones Or Colored Rocks (Optional)
  • Empty Wine (Or Liquor) Bottle

Choose bottle you would like to transform, and clean it out properly.

Pour about a 1/2 cup of glass stones, rocks or beads into the bottom of the bottle.

Begin feeding one end of the lights into the bottle. Spread them out as best as possible.

Wrap ribbon, lace or tulle around the neck of the bottle about three times. Tie in a decorative bow. You can also use other types of decor for the front, depending on the theme of your room. Plug the lights into an outlet.


  • You can also use LED lights. Just tape or tie the battery pack to the lower back of the bottle. If the label will not peel off or it does not match the decor, you can always create your own label on the computer. Print it out and tape it on.
