A lot of us like a variety of craft projects. I myself just love them. Here is a fantastic list of 15+ DIY Photo Lamp Ideas and Tutorials.
“Do you have some old photos lying around that you don’t know what to do with? Why not turn them into beautiful lamps? Photo lamps are a great way to add personality and character to any room, and they’re also a great way to show off your favorite photos”
Have a look through this list as I am sure you will find at least a few that you are going to love.
Glowing Glass Bead Wine Bottle
What you need is…..
Clean wine bottle
Glass beads of your choice
Hot glue gun
Tin can (optional)
I use a tin can to hold my wine bottle, it seems to make it much easier.
Place your wine bottle upside down in a tin can
Starting at the bottom and with your hot glue gun. Glue glass bead in rows up the can.
When you are about half way up, you can take the wine bottle out of the can and set it on a flat surface.
Continue with the glass beads to the top of the wine bottle.
(You will notice at this point that you probably have “spider web” looking glue strands all over the bottle. don’t worry about this when you are finished use your hand or cloth and just rub the dry “spider webs” off)
Place glow sticks (usually 2 – 3 small ones work fantastic) inside the wine bottle.
This makes a beautiful decoration during an evening BBQ.
(Using glow sticks makes this extremely portable and reusable again and again)
