Beer Bottle Lights

One of Joe’s favorite new beers comes in the best bottles and I had to do something with them. I love the idea of using bottles for light fixtures and chandeliers. I can’t change the light fixtures in my apartment, but I did come up with another way to use these bottles.
We have more Christmas lights than we should (we got a bit over-zealous the last few years around the holidays), so I dug up a strand and took some time stuffing them into these bottles. It worked perfectly! The bottles look like they’re filled with fireflies – seriously makes me think of summer. If I had a place to hang them I could tape the tops to secure the bottles to the light strand and hang them like string lights. I really hope someone does that haha.

I took the labels off, but learn from me and do it first. It was a pain doing it after putting the lights in. The price I pay for changing my mind!
