Crafty Upcycler Revived A Beat Up Old Lamp Using Pill Bottles

People have come up with lots of clever ways to turn plastic bottles into something useful or artsy, but their creations typically just look like cut, painted and/or glued together trash and not something you'd proudly display.

But crafty upcycler Emily Seilhamer was able to turn a bunch of empty pill bottles into something anyone would be proud to have in their home- a surprisingly nice looking mid-century modern lamp.

Here's how she put it all together:

By removing the fabric of the original shade I was able to keep the top metal ring alone. By using fishing line I was able to suspend each bottle from the metal ring through a tiny drilled hole in the bottom of each. To keep the bottles from slipping I used tiny glass beads that held them in place, this also helped to hang them in a pattern

Yes, they do move when you touch them and make fun noises. Watch the video below
