Can you believe that you can make a lamp of a simple bottle? Yes, you can! Take a glass bottle or vase, painters tape, a drill bit, a drill, a lighting make-a-lamp kit, a detachable lamp harp, a screwdriver, wire strippers, a lamp finial, paint and a brush, a lampshade. First, clean out the vase. Then pick a location for the wire to thread through at the bottom of the vase and marked it with a piece of painters tape. Next, make sure to protect yourself with eyewear and a dust mask. Secure the vase between two 10-pound hand weights and using the carbide drill bit, slowly drill a hole through the painters tape and glass. Read how to finish the lamp here.
