From the Blogger: "Did you know that you can cheaply buy copper string lights with the battery hidden in a cork? These lights are perfect for making gorgeous Christmas luminaries from old bottles. No need to drill into the glass when making bottle lights. For these lovely illuminated Christmas decorations, I gathered some old glass bottles. I then cut some Christmas shapes and stuck them to the front of the bottles before spray painting the bottles. Lights were placed in the bottles create a lovely Christmas decoration."

I had made one for Easter but left the vinyl on and sprayed it with frosted paint. THe ones above give me another idea.

What a precious idea. I love your bottles and how pretty they look with the lights in them. At first, I thought that you put the foam decorations on the inside somehow, but then I realized that you painted them from the outside and peeled the decorations off after the paint dried. Can you do this craft without the cork toppers, or do you need something to hang the lights from when illuminating the bottles?
