If you leave your festival decor to last minutes, this post is just for you! If you have some string lights and empty wine bottles (or any glass bottles) lying around, you can make this cute and spooky lamp at home! Let’s nail the Halloween lighting game!
I am not going to be home this Halloween, but the spirit is strong! I have put in some li’l decoration here and there, mostly my patio and I am so pumped up. Wine bottle lamps are the easiest DIY – put in your light in them and you are good to go! Giving the bottle a spooky look is my Halloween lighting hack for you!
This wine bottle lamp is very easy to make, and we are using things which won’t give you a run for your money. Also, since we are using paper to cut out the pattern, it’s not a very long lasting DIY. However, if you love to work with Cricut and vinyl, like me – you can make a very sophisticated lamp. Download the SVG of the pattern and you are all set!
Halloween Lighting: Things You Will Need
- Wine Bottle
- String Light
- Black Cardstock
- Printed Pattern (free download, no sign up required)
- Mod Podge
- Paint Brushes
- Cloth/tissue to wipe clean
Don’t Have Mod Podge? Mix 3 parts of white PVA glue with 1 part of water!
I have already adjusted the size of the pattern to fit a standard 750 mL wine bottle. You can choose from the following two patterns or use both! Make the Halloween lighting completely yours!
Halloween Lighting: Instructions
- Clean the bottle using rubbing alcohol. To remove the label, dip the bottle in a mixture of water and baking soda for thirty minutes and then wipe off using a wet towel.
- Cut out the pattern on the black cardstock using the printed pattern. You can also use the print directly.
If you have a Cricut machine, you can use that to cut your pattern. You can also use vinyl to make a more stable lamp!
- Carefully apply your Mod Podge on the pattern and stick to the bottle. Repeat the same process for the bats.
- Wipe off the excess Mod Podge using a wet tissue, very carefully.
- Insert the lights, and you have the cutest mini Halloween lighting for your table!
I really hope you had fun making the lamp! Please share it on Instagram and don’t forget to tag me and my venture, @the.drunke.boxist.
