Rinse out your wine bottle and remove the labels (if desired). Place a piece of masking tape on the bottle where you want to drill the hole for the cord. The tape keeps the drill bit from slipping. Put on your gloves and goggles and start drilling. Don’t apply too much pressure or you could break the glass.

The drilling takes a long time. I spent about 30 minutes drilling the hole. Once your hole is drilled rinse the glass shavings out of your bottle, and let the bottle dry. Carefully feed the strand of Christmas lights into the hole you drilled.Now you can enjoy its beautiful glow and the wonderful atmosphere that it will create inside your home.
