Making Instructions (Login to see the full instructions)

To make two pendent lights you will need 4 large glass drinks bottles, 2 light fittings, 2 eco bulbs, some wire and a junction box. You will also need 2 old pairs of thick and fishnet tights. (IMPORTANT) Nylon tights will need to be sprayed with fire-retardant coating.
Firstly, clean the labels off all the bottles.
Cut the bottle by turning the bottle down onto the bottle cutter.
Pour boiling water on the score line (rotate the bottle). Once rotated 360 degrees run the bottle through cold water once. Repeat this process until the score line cracks.
Wire the light into the bottle as shown.
Tie the tights into the other bottle section and then pull the tights over both bottles and cable tie in place.

The pendent light example shown here uses a combination of black fishnet and heavier red tights.
