I love the shape of the Hendrick’s Gin bottle, it’s one of those Bottles that you hang onto and don’t want throw it into the recycling because it’s got too much potential.
DIY Hendricks Bottle Lamp
I drew out this cucumber shape (Hendricks Gin is made with Cucumber and Rose Botanicals) I cut the shape out with the Cricut Machine with an etching vinyl.
Etching onto the Bulb
Carefully apply the etching paste, thickly with a brush and leave to dry for 15-20 mins. Make sure you are wearing gloves.
With a damp cloth remove the etching paste, be careful not to get any water near the bulb electrics.
Dry with a cloth and peel back the vinyl to reveal your etched bulb.
Attaching the light fixture:
The great thing about this lamp kit is that it is really safe, no drilling holes in a glass bottle at the wire comes out the side and not down the middle of the fitting. Also no need to re-wire either making it really safe, easy and quick to use.
I removed the little bottle plug as it didn’t fit into the bottle top, I found a double ended bolt, that I could screw up into the base.
Then I just painted the outer lamp in just a black poster paint.
Drilled a hole into the lid of the Hendrick’s lid, using the same size drill piece as the bolt. Then screw the lid into the lamp fixture. Lamp fixture HERE
Pop it onto the bottle, screw in bulb and its as easy as that!
