Wine Bottle Lights

I have seen these wine bottles lights around at craft shows for a while I been wanting to make myself one. I don’t drink very often but decided it was time for me to take one for the team and I polished off a bottle of wine lol okay I did have a little help, but I got my empty wine bottle.



Supplies needed:

  • Clean empty wine bottle with the cork
  • 35 mini light set
  • Raffia
  • Bunch of artificial grapes
  • Glass drill bit
  • Hot glue or tacky glue
  • Old wire hanger


 How to:

  1. Drill a hole in the back of the bottle so that you can feed the all of the lights into the bottle
  2. Feed the lights through the hole
  3. Bend the hanger into a little hook
  4. After you feed about half of the lights into the bottle use the wire hook to pull the lights up to the top of the bottle.
  5. Holding the bottle upside down will make it easier to move the lights to the top
  6. Feed the rest of the light into the bottle and place cork on



  1. Use about 10 pieces of raffia. Tape or glue the ends of the raffia to the bottle, then wrap the raffia around the top of the bottle.
  2. Trim the ends of the raffia so they are all the same length. Hot glue the ends of the raffia
  3. Use 4-5 pieces of raffia and slide them through the little hole of the grapes stem. Slide grapes to the center of the raffia
  4. Wrap the raffia with the grapes around the top of the bottle and tie



That’s it! Plug in and enjoy your new Wine Bottle Lights!!
