Bottle Lamp Book Project
Taking an idea and making it a reality can sometimes seem like a daunting task.
Formulating a book idea and moving it toward a completed physical item that you’re actually holding in your hands can feel the same way. On the web site Bottle-Lamp, Silke and I have a free e-book that goes into the details of making a bottle lamp. One of the biggest components to the whole process is drilling the hole. Having the right equipment and a little technique will get people started.
The free e-book was several years old and hundreds of people have downloaded it. We had always talked about scrapping it altogether or simply rewriting it and elaborating on more of the key elements. The idea to bring it to a printed format came to us while we were doing some research into DIY (Do It Yourself) and craft hobby books.
After looking through an online library we concluded two things:
First, there really wasn’t a lot out there that covered bottle lamp making
Second, what was out there wasn’t really all that good
Recycled Bottle Lamps – Instructions, Project Ideas and Inspirations
The book was created with an attempt to simplify the whole bottle lamp making process. With colorful illustrations that help guide you through the project from start to finish. Color photos display a complete section on bottle decorating ideas. A glossary of words that are associated with bottles, lamps and recycled bottle lamps.
Research For The Book
While researching and writing our Recycled Bottle Lamps craft book I learned what a ‘punt’ was. Set aside the football reference, it also refers to the inverse indent in the bottom or base of a wine or champagne bottle. There is so much more to bottle lamp making than even I ever imagined.
We are excited and proud to talk to you about our newest completed project. Please feel free to share it with your friends and family.
If you have any questions or would like to comment on the book, leave us a note in the comment section below.

P.S. – We think our bottle lamp making book would make a great gift idea for anyone looking for a new hobby.
