Running Springs, United States

Retired from USC’s school of medicine . Now doing professional photography as I see fit . Love all my models , weather they are...

Christmas fun . Instructions for a unique gift .

Buy a clear white or rose wine bottle ( the one with a cork ) . Big lots has them cheap . Empty in out , either by mouth or down the drain . Do not destroy the wrapping around the neck while pulling the cork . Rinse it out , without getting the outside wet . turn upright after rinsing . let it dry out . Put old or new small marbles into the bottle ( About 20 ) . Or use decorative glas beads .
Then take a string of 25 Christmas minilights and carefuly put them inside , leaving the plug and about 15 inches of wiring outside the bottle. Then tie a bit of decoritive crafters holly to the neck of the bottle facing the same way as the wine lable . Plug it in and see what you have created .
Enjoy !
