You can use this kit to create a lamp and harness your lamp fittings in the bottle of your choice, whether you would like your bottle standing up-right on it’s base or on it’s side housed in a stand you will create for it.

You could use my Bottle Cutter kit to cut the bottle width ways into two halves and wire up one half of the bottle with the lamp components, and you could upcycle a stand for it to sit on later. Have a look through the images for ideas.

Included in the kit are all the components needed to create a lamp, plus the fittings to house them inside any bottle safely – without damaging the electrical components.

I have given you plenty of scope for using a wide range of different shape & size bottles, dependant on what size/type of bottle you are using, you may need to cut down your hollow threaded tube. We advise doing this for the best aesthetic finish. (Cutting the thread bar down is super quick & easy with a metal hacksaw, you can always reuse the leftovers for another lamp).

Add fabric flex here by the meter, you will receive all your fabric flex in one continuous length. My lamp kits come with 2 meters of fabric flex included. My pendant kits come with 1 meter of fabric flex included – if you need more add it here.

Add a flex grip to your order – please select the colour and quantity you require. Flex grips are designed to hold lighting flex so there is no pressure put on the internal wiring components of your lampholder or ceiling rose when creating lighting which will hang rather than sit. If you ordered a pendant light kit or jam jar lamp kit you will have a flex grip included, if you ordered my ‘Turn Anything into a Lamp’ kit or ‘Bottle Lamp kit’ that come with a plug and switch and you want to hang your lamp in someway you should add a flex grip here. Flex grips are supplied with a 10mm long M10 hollow threaded rod to attach it to your lampholder.

This hollow threaded rod is made to attach to the m10 thread on our lamp holders. Because it’s hollow it means you can pass your lighting flex through it to secure to your lampholder. Sold in 120mm (12cm) lengths, if you add more than one I will supply in one continuous length – ie: order a quantity of 5 you will receive 600mm (60cm) in one length. My lamp kits usually come with a piece of hollow threaded rod, length is dependant on the kit, please check this in the listing & order more here if you require it.

Lampholder rings – to secure lampshades or similar to our lampholders. Choose the colour you require below.
