Vintage marbles, discarded Patron bottles and light from darkness!

  Repurposed some Patron bottles into oil lamps!
... had done the one on the right a few years back
and decided to make use of some vintage marbles

washed my vintage marbles ...
and voilà !

with fiberglass wicks
and brass and ceramic wick holders

 just add WOLFORD Lamp Oil! 
... waiting for my order to arrive

 still need to embellish the necks
 of these beautiful bottles
 and WHO drank all that Patron?
... save YOUR bottles for me!

 happy marbles have a new purpose!

I'll list them in my ETSY shop when they are all done!

"... let light shine out of darkness..."
2 Corinthians 4:6


  1. nice job....these patron bottles are in the book "upcycling" by danny seo but yours are nicer with the marbles....what diameter wick and where did you find wicking & was your wick already attached to stopper? Annie

    1. Thx Annie! Glad you like them. 1/8" fiberglass wick ... bought them on line (2 different places, and Southern Lamp Supply) and I had to insert the wick into the wick holder myself ... that was tricky! Have a great week!

  2. Where did you purchase the wick holders? Are they a certain size?

  3. ... bought them on line (2 different places, and Southern Lamp Supply). Not sure of exact size ... check them out on line!


thx for the note! i do appreciate your time!
