How to make a Lighted Bottle Decoration

These are super easy to make all you need is
a small string of mini LED lights (I used a small string of Battery operated LED's)LED's dont not get hot!
36" of ribbon
a Glass Drill bit
First step, drill a 3/8" hole in the bottom of the bottle, then string the LED lights through it.
then pull the lightd out the mouth of the bottle, and wrap ribbon around the string of lights
Then push the ribbon and the lights back in
There you have a unique bottle ornament. This looks good with frosted wine bottles. Also can be done with glass blocks, forget the ribbon, just put the lights in the block after drilling the hole, then hot glue the ribbon on like a christmas package.
HINT: It drills so much easier if you have a drill press. If you don't just be very careful with your power drill.
