Here’s a simple craft that has a terrific end result. You can transform a 2-Liter Coke bottle into a lamp! You can decorate it according to your own tastes, so don’t feel obliged to use the star decoration pictured above.

Here’s what you will need:

an empty 2-liter soda bottle
a string of white Christmas lights
parchment or wax paper
construction paper
X-Acto knife
scissors
clear tape

Just follow these instructions:

Cut the top section off the bottle, but leave the bottom intact.
Cut a small slit into the bottle near the bottom in the back.
From the inside, push the plug from the Christmas lights through the slit and pull so a bit of wire hangs out the back.
Stuff the rest of the lights inside the bottle.
Cut a piece of wax or parchment paper to fit snugly around the bottle.
Using construction paper, cut out shapes of your choosing and tape over the parchment paper.
Just plug it in and enjoy!
