There’s little I love more than a great bottle of wine. I enjoy drinking wine with family and friends and pairing different flavors with different meals. After finishing the contents of the wine bottle I usually just recycle the glass and move on. However, there is a better way to use that finished bottle that’s just as classy as drinking it. Use that empty bottle to make a beautiful DIY lighted wine bottle. These lighted wine bottles make great decor during the holidays or to theme a room or yard with wine. This project is a perfect wine bottle craft.

Initially, the drill bit may want to move all around and tear the tape. Use a bit more pressure to start the hole and continue to drill until there is a hole in the glass.

While drilling, the glass will smoke, this is normal. When the hole is complete, remove the bottle from the water and empty. The hole may be a bit jagged. This is okay, just be careful not to cut your fingers.
