Turning Thrift Store Wine Bottles into Lamps

We stumbled across this bunch of bottles at a Goodwill store and couldn't pass them up. They were just so beautiful. With a simple bottle kit and a shade they easily become beautiful lamps similar to Pottery Barn and Ballard has but at a HUGE savings.

    I've been collecting so many large wine bottles lately that my hubby started buying his every day wine in the boxes. He thinks we've run out of places to put the empties.

    Ah, poor mice! I think these bottles are so pretty. Especially the gorgeous blue-green color they have. Tell your hubby for me, ain't nothing wrong with wine from a box from time to time!

    I saw a chandelier once. I saved wine bottles. I cleaned them (lots of work) but after a while, I just put them in the recycling can. I never found the "How to" I would love to make it. Anyone can help?

    These two water bottles were next to a bin. We transformed them into these lamps (on the left of the photo)
