Needcraft Bottle Lamp Adaptor Conversion Kit

Made specifically for converting glass bottle with 17-19mm opening, which means most standard wine and sprit bottles, our Needcraft Bottle Lamp Adaptor Conversion Kit is extremely user friendly. Available in both black and white, it has also has an ample, two metre cable extending from the lamp holder to the plug.


With the same features of any normal lamps base, to turn your lamp on and off simply use the push switch at the base of the lamp holder. The tight fit of the lamp holder, due the durability and rotation of the plastic ‘wings’ which condense to fit into the bottle opening, ensure that the lamp holder is extremely secure, giving your new upcycled bottle lamp the stability to hold a handmade lampshade. We recommend a 60-watt bulb as the maximum wattage.
