and making a lamp.
Yes, I said, a lamp!
To be honest, it wasn’t exactly hard. You buy a kit at one of your major craft stores that come ready to assemble into a bottle lamp. The hardest part was trying to figure out how I could have twinkle lights and a lamp top… most samples I have seen are either one or the other, but I had to be difficult and shoot for both… so I did!
I saw these at the Kane County Flea Market one Sunday for like $55.00 each. She had it so that you could toggle the switch – twinkle lights only, lamp top only, or both… I am not an electrician, so I just did it as two separate switches. Too complicated to figure that out. That, and, I didn’t really want to start a fire. So, instead, I used a regular lamp kit light and then used battery twinkle lights – I hot glued the battery pack to the back of the bottle… probably not the best solution, but it works!
I am just super happy with how cute it actually turned out for being my first attempt! Anyway, just wanted to share!
