DIY – Oil lamps out of old bottles.

Are you like me and sometimes buy various drinks only because of that the bottles are pretty?

And then suddenly you have lots of empty bottles at home that are a little too good looking to throw away? Now I’ve got the solution of what to do with them! Turn your old bottles into oil lamps. Perfect to brighten up dark winter days like these. It’s very simple and they turn out soo nice! So! I felt I had to share the tip here.

What you need is:

  • One or several bottles that you think are pretty.
  • Lamp oil
  • Oil lamp wick
  • Oil lamp nozzle (I’m not sure about that translation here. But you get the picture)

I bought it all at You can buy it directly in their web shop or in any of their stores.

The bottles we used at home. (And Yes! We like gin in our family ;)

Then just fill the bottle with lamp oil. The more lamp oil you have in the bottle, the better flame you’ll get. Pull the wick into the nozzle and put it in the bottle. Allow the wick to absorb the oil for about 15 minutes before turning it on. And voila! :)


Easy peasy! :)
