Halloween Bottle Night Light

My sister Dina loves Halloween. I mean, LOOOOOVES Halloween. We refer to her as "Cryptkeeper" so what more do I need to say? One day I hope to show you her amazing house decorated for "All Hallows Eve" and you will be amazed at the talent. She is always so loving and supportive towards everything I do that I wanted to make her something very special to let her know how much she means to me.

I've had one of these bottle lights in my kitchen for a couple of years and she has always admired it. Mine was given to me by a dear friend who was kind enough to teach me how to make them. Mine is grape themed to match my Tuscan kitchen as you can see. The one I made for my sister is Halloween themed (of course).






It's not a hard project, fairly simple. The hardest part is drilling a hole in the back of the bottle to insert the lights through. That's where the hubby comes in.



I bought a mini light set of 20 lights





Now for the label; for the grape themed bottle light the original wine label was left on. For this application I used Martha Stewart's ready made bottle labels for Halloween. They come in a pack of 6 and you can find these in Michael's or even the Dollar Tree sometimes carries some that are similar. I had some left over from last year. I chose the shiny orange one. I thought it looked the best. Just peel and stick to the bottle and that's it.



Once that's done the rest is easy and the possibilities are endless.I tied a bow around the neck of the bottle. I hot glued all the embellishments and added a little dab of hot glue at the very top to hold the tip of the light in place. The glow of this bottle at night is so nice. Wish you could see it in person.I really hope my sister thinks her light is SPOOKTACULAR!! HaHa!!!! Thanks so much for stopping by.

Love, Patty
