Our Moonshine Oil Lamp

Posted on July 5, 2013 by under Projects.    

I saw this video on YouTube and Brian saw some how-tos on Pinterest for how to turn wine bottles into oil lamps so we decided to start collecting all of our used wine bottles. We have at least a dozen of them now.

One of the cooler used bottles in our collection was our bottle of Midnight Moon moonshine. Thanks to Jay for bringing it over to one of our parties.

We couldn’t find the exact materials that we need but we improvised. We purchase two copper reducers and inserted the smaller into the larger one to create a neck for the wick. Brian used teflon tape to ensure that there is a snug fit between our bottle and the neck that holds the wick. We bought a big jug of citronella tiki torch fuel for our oil. And, voila! We have our moonshine oil lamp.


Brian is going to get some more materials today so that we can convert our empty Grand Marnier bottle into another oil lamp. I think it will look really cool.

What do you think?
