Glass Light Bottles // Creative Living
We have been getting our craft-on these last couple of weeks, working hard on some hand-made elements for our small's new bedroom. One project that I was focusing on while Jay sawed away in the garage, were these glass light bottles.
We have a thing for interestingly shaped bottles and having held on to these for some years, they were the perfect thing for this DIY.
Having already picked the colour pops for his room, we utilised the colourway to create some bespoke 'lamps' for his new bedside unit, that Jay has been busy making. The idea is that they sit upside down - the necks of the bottles submerged a little way into the wooden top, siliconed in place - and lit with tiny LED lights.
I wanted the bottles to not only echo the general theme of the room, but to have purpose and meaning - like lights of hope. Since we are hugely passionate vegan naturalists, I chose Climate Change (snow fall), Biodiversity (bear face) and Deforestation (tree). Some bits were painted free-hand and others I made stencils for.
All that is left to do now is to stuff them with tiny LED's and fit them onto the unit - since we are midway through doing this, you will have to hold on a little longer to see the end result and full effect, but we hope that this provides you all with a bit of inspiration for your creative living.
