Pop Bottle Bullet Lamps
Ever wonder what you can do with those empty
soda pop bottles. Well I have an idea for you. Make
a pair of Bullet lamps.
Here is how I did it.
WHAT YOU NEED:
2 - 2 liter soda bottles, emptied and clean
2 Lamp kits
1 Glitter Spray paint
1 Mettalic Spray paint
1 Cardboard sheet
Glue gun and sticks
WHAT YOU DO:
Using utility knife cut off the spout of the bottle and then cut
out one section of the bottle. Doing your best to keep the cut
straight. Then cut off the bottom of bottle. See pictures.
You wil be making 2 pieces total, excluding the spout and
bottom. Throw those away you won't be needing them.
Next pick a spot on the bottom base piece for a hole puncher
to pierce, this will be the top side of the lamp. Then directly
Opposite of punched out hole, you'll need to Cut out a small
square for the plug in to go through, this is important so your
base will lay flat on surfaces.
Now its time for spray painting your remaining two pieces.
I sprayed Glitter on the larger piiece, and mettallic on the
smaller piece. The glitter will recquire 2-3 coats total.
Let dry completely. Meanwhile you can assemble the lamp
Next up you'll need to make 2 inserts for your lamps,
otherwise the lamp part will sit 2 low inside the bottles.
I spray painted mine with mettalic.
Once everthing is dry, yiu can begin lamp assembly. First
take your Mettalic one and insert into the glitter half
Make sure your inserts go at least halfway down. Then
you need to insert your lamp thru the painted cardboard.
Then its time to superglue the two bottle pieces together.
Let dry then use a hot glue gun to add the ribbon to the
And voila, bullet lamps. I may have missed a few instructions,
but i took plenty of photos for you. It seems complicated.
but i would call this project moderately easy.
Later I will make a video.
Keep It Easy!
