Emergency Lamp

I found this beautiful blue bottle and it took me a while to decide how to re-purpose it and came up with an attractive emergency light.

Step 1:

The materials I used were (left to right) a small lamp shade that grasps the light bulb, LED tap light, beautiful blue discarded bottle and empty plastic jar with a diameter to match the top diameter of the lampshade.

Step 2:

Take the lampshade and form the wire that grasps the light bulb to grasp the LED tap light.  It wasn't tricky or hard, just spread and roll inward and mount the tap light up tight to the top of the shade.

Step 3:

The next thing is to get a clear base that fits the inside small diameter of the lampshade and tap light to support it on top of the bottle. I cut the base at about an inch and a half height. then it was a little tricky to drill the center. I achieved a tight fit and chose to not glue it to the bottle.

Step 4:

Note: To use it you just lift up the shade, tap the light on and set it on the clear plastic ring, Off is just in the reverse order.

Now you can find a convenient place for your little attractive emergency light.
