Binding the bottles to the outside of the bulb cage is easier if you spread them out a bit. I nearly gave up half-way through to swap it out for wires, but the sip-ties work just fine.

Before you trim off the tails, make sure you arrange them in a way that the cage can close around your light bulb (I learned that one the hard way).


  • 10 clean plastic bottles
  • 1 plastic light bulb cage ( found in the electrical supply section at the hardware store, popular at construction sites the world over).
  • 10 zip ties

Cutting the bottles is the hard part. get yourself a sturdy pair of kitchen shearsand turn on the movie, it could take a little while.
