Soda Bottle ChandelierMake a Soda Bottle Chandelier Plastic Bottle Craft and discover a great way to reuse all those water bottles that you have in your recycle bin. With some easy-to-find supplies, you can make plastic bottle crafts that can be displayed in your craft room. Crafts with plastic bottles are an eco-friendly alternative to more expensive home decor crafts. This is a great project to make after a party or celebration because you need 24 plastic soda bottles. It's also a great excuse to get everyone in your life to save their bottles rather than throwing them away. If you've never made crafts with plastic soda bottles, this is a great excuse to get started.



  • 24 soda bottles
  • Twist ties
  • 1/16" hole punch
  • Permanent marker
  • Holiday lights



  1. Using a permanent marker, mark five points around the neck of the soda bottle.
  2. Punch those marks and insert twist ties into holes.
  3. Connect that soda bottle to another soda bottle by threading twist ties through other bottle's matching holes.
  4. Once finished connecting bottles, feed long end (not the plug end) of Christmas lights into the soda bottles.
  5. Once last light is in, insert one more twist tie through a hole and twist around end of the string of lights.

sike my jokes were just jokes i love this )

i love this so much NOT HA GOTEE


i like this for a terrace BBQ party, with twinkle mini-lights...fancy! lfs

I did this a long time ago but the directions I used said to poke holes in the plastic bottles for ventilation. The heat from that many tiny bulbs does build up. I used the tiny, twinkle lights in mine.

I thought this was a great idea Thank You

This would be great for an outdoor party

I can't wait to try this!

I think those spiral bulbs would be fine and not heat up, any other LED lights too.

I like it, a good Idea

@leeancarol99-if you use Christmas lights the heat shouldn't be a problem. Larger lights, however, probably wouldn't be a good idea for this project.

How do you make them safe from the heat given from the lightbulbs?

I suggest poking holes in the bottles to allow for ventilation. You can also use smaller Christmas lights rather than light bulbs. Hope that helps!
