Creating your own pendant lamp from bottles is an extremely impressive and original interior design solution. We can create it at a really low cost.

The holes should take the shape of an equilateral triangle. In the middle we screw in a hook, on which the chandelier will hang. Prepare three separate pieces of two-core cable with a length of 50 cm and mount to each of them bulb holders. Of course, the electrical installation should be carried out by a professional. Finally, all you need to do is put the wires through the bottle inlets and the holes in the base. After adjusting the height, use an upholstery stapler to block the wires at the bottle outlet.
