Hi Mod conglomeration of rocks readers! It’s Johnnie from Saved By love creations. I asked Amy if I crash the party could share on how to upcycle wine bottles in a rainbow-themed-wine-bottle-chandelier, so here we are!
these DIY chandelier >; to match your home decor using your favorite Mod smorgasbord of Pure color, or you can use as many as you can get your hands on, like I did. The project includes the cutting of bottles of wine, which is easier than you might think, so let’s get started!
Collect These Supplies
wine bottles cut to the size, you want (I've shown you how to cut this HERE: How-to-Cut-wine-bottles)Mod-hodgepodge pure colors – if they aren’t available to mix your own with Mod smorgasbord and eat coloringWax paper or non-stick craft matCraft knife pendant light kit (I used this one I found at Amazon)
The coloring of the cut-wine-bottles
Squeeze a generous amount of Mod smorgasbord of pure colors in the cut end of the bottle.
Swirl to disperse the bottle, the color on the inside of the bottle.
If you are flowing with a hard time, it can be shown by tapping the bottle against your wrist like.
you Let the excess Mod hodgepodge drops in to save it back into the product bottle as much as possible for your next project!
I put my bottles on my kitchen table, on a non-stick craft sheet, with the ceiling fan. Place them with the opening facing down so they dry faster. This is an over-night process.
wiring of the lights
, For the wine-bottle-chandelier-project, I used a standard E27 socket pendant light kit, at almost any Walmart or large DIY store.
The one I had installed is actually being used in a in-line switch between the plug and the socket. I had no need to, the switch or the plug since I was going to have a direct wiring to an existing switched circuit.
I cut the wire with wire cutters at the socket side of the switch. I have about 2 ft. the wire to the socket-base, but you should test and see what distance looks best in your application.
you make the cut at the end of the bottle and the neck of each of the six colored bottle shades. The connectors fit snuggly into the taper of the neck from the shadows.
you Insulate the ends of each of the wires with your wire cutters to peel the plastic coating was removed (there are 12 wires are hot and neutral for each lamp or 18, if the kit over cable for a ground).
I opted for a room that already has a simple ceiling light to a wall switch. This made it easy to take down and I just bottle the existing junction box and cover used-plate from the old light-mount-my-wine-chandelier.
With the wall switch OFF (throw the service switch for additional safety), removal of the old ceiling lights and find the white (neutral) black (hot) and green (ground) wires. You pull them down out of the box and make sure you have enough room to go back with the new wire bundle to create, you’re going.
you can Combine all the neutral wires from the lamp kit together to a pigtail. DO the same for the hot and the ground, if it exists. You use something to help insulation tape to hold them together all the while you are ready, connect them to the junction box.
With an appropriately sized wire nut, connect the white pigtail of the lamp kit to the white (neutral) wire from the ceiling. DO the same with the Black (hot) and earth (green), if available.
you Slide the wires in the junction box and thus the weight of the lamps is done by the bundled lamp cable to the junction box support bar.
Slide the lamp cover you used from the old lights in the place, to cover everything.
Flip the switch and the switch on. Put light bulbs in the lamps. Let there be light!!! Your DIY-wine-bottle-chandelier can be customized with your favorite colors – or all the same color!
***Extra tip: Use Mod conglomeration of rocks stencils and Glitter Poofers add your favorite pattern for added sparkly goodness, like I did with this Recycled bottle lamp:
