Want to use those empties to make a beautiful lamp rather than just throw them away? There are some really decorative bottles around these days particularly Gin bottles that are ideal. So no matter what your tipple, you can be creative, just take a look at what you can do with your empties…

Our expandable bungs can fit various size bottles, with a choice of 8 sizes and three finishes. Our lamp bungs have a screw slot so, as you turn the screw, it expands a couple of millimetres to get a nice snug fit for your bottle neck. Choose your lamp holder, some earthed lamp flex, and an inline switch and you are well on your way to creating your own unique lamp. You can also visit our Bottle Lamp Kit making page where you will be led through the products you may need if you are not so sure what’s needed or indeed possible!

Small bottle bungs

Our three smaller sized bungs have a small decorative cap; perfect for making a lamp from a classic wine or champagne bottle, just add one of our side-entry lampholders for your flex access if you don’t want to drill a hole in the bottle.

Or try one of our larger bungs if you are making a table lamp from a Vase, Demijohn, Milk churn, Trumpet – we’ve seen them all!

Large bottle bungs
