Kraken Rum is excellent but I really love the bottles.
So yesterday at the Tiki Chop I made this "old school" style beachcomber lamp
out of the Kraken Rum bottle we all finished off.

Had to wait for the sun to go down. Here you go.

Good luck with your lamp.

How did you get the shells in? Cut the bottom off? If so, how did you seal up the bottom?

The lamp is really awesome.....I've got a couple of cork floats and some driftwood. Shells and Sand. Light fixture. Rope. Bottle cutter from 70's. Just need a bottle! And answers to the above questions!!

You put them in when they're little babies....

1. I cut the bottom of the bottle off
2. Carved out the bottom float to fit the base of the bottle tightly.
3. Working upside down I filled the bottle with the sand and shells.
4. With my glue gun I sealed the bottom of the bottle with a round piece of cardstock cut to the diameter of the bottom of the bottle.
5. Used the glue gun again to seal the float to the bottom of the bottle.

I used one of the thick net floats from Oceanic Arts and cut it in half.
