Did this video help you?

Nick Jager: Bathila Kankanamge, I started out with a 1/8" for the pilot hole, 1/4", 5/16", and finally a 1/2". You really don't have to go all the way through with that one. Good question!

Dick Sommerfeld: Where do you buy the glass drill bits and the crystal fill?

Kay Pope: where do you find the larger drill bits ... and the crystal fill please ?

Shelly Jones: Have you had a chance to try it with tinsel yet?

MyHotRodTV Ron: You should keep the bottle wet with a sponge when drilling. You get a cleaner hole and it cools the bit.

Kaitlyn Wheatley: HOW LONG DID THE DRILLING TAKE?!?!?

Ryan Hicks: Thanks for the help. And on a side note, love the Proclaimers playing in the background! 

John Kuhnke: You should wear gloves!!

Barbara Merkel: I've made a few and can't find a way to get the lights to stay up at the top, they always fall down so the bottle isn't illuminated all the way from top to bottom! Any suggestions?

Fabrizio Tofanelli: Hello Nick.... I just don't get it what crystal is.... mind to tell me?? and, an idea for your next bottle... actually i was searching for a video I saw a few months ago, where a girl did a lamp but with shattered glass.... a nice one indeed =)

Bathila Kankanamge: What are the sizes of the drill bits?

The2012waiting: I hate when the hole isn't big enough ;)

Clown Whisper: I like how you were careful not to say you needed to see if you have a big enough hole! You said "so we're going to see, right now, if I have a big enough....... area! Well played Nick Jagger, Well played. 

Jan Milissen: In order to prevent cracking the bottle, use water or oil to cool down the drillbit and glass. I would not attempt anything like this dry drilling with a precious bottle.

Leticia Beam: these look great! This video is very informative on cutting holes in glass!

Nick Jager: Have you seen all of the great comments on this video? Take a look. #diycrafts #bottlelamp 

msradwoman: What kind of crystals are you using and where can I get them? Thanks

jdphd: Excellent presentation and directions. At first I thought it was too difficult and better watch later.

John Kuhnke: Thank you for replying, Good video, and take good care of your hands. the last two you will get.

Lonestar Vt: Thanks for the video. I think it would be wise to wear leather gloves too. I just cut my hand badly on a glass oven door so I'm a little on guard...

Angie Sheidler: Thank you for the video. :) My daughter needs to do a recycled project for school. We're going to try this and see how it goes. 

Margartvl K: Love this idea! Easy idea - Would be great for Christmas or Halloween! 

Petie Wheatstraw: Wheres your gloves?

Nick Jager: Mary, If you use regular Christmas lights you will experience some heat accumulation. For someone who's planning on running the bottle lights longer I would recommend LED light strings. This lights give off no heat and use less energy. The only downside is the cost. LED lights will be a little more expensive.

Gary Lee: I thought you said Mick Jagger!

TheRanhughes: My wife loves these!! They look easy to make. Thanks for posting this video...it was very informative!!!

Shawna McMillon: Hi Nick, this video is so helpful. Thank you so much for posting this. i am for sure going to try this when I move into my new place. Where can I get the crystal film? Joann Fabrics, or michaels maybe? 

Laura van Leeuwen: Won't sugar do the exact same thing as the crystal?

Geri Kelly: than you!

Drew Hupke: ur a fag

Kirsti Randall: What a great idea for 'christmas lights' in a bar!! Thanks for the tutorial Nick!

Diego Benitez: es muy bueno tu trabajo, te felicito y gracias por compartir your job is great, congratulations, and thank you for share

Antonio Bruno: The video is great, but I would like to point out one safety point for those trying to do this for the first time. BE SURE TO WEAR SAFETY GOGGLES AND LEATHER GLOVES!. If the bottle has any unknown flaws, there is a good chance that during the process there would be a shatter. If this occurs, severe lacerations, and/or eye damage is a real possibility.

kden z: how do i make glass look crystallized?

MesserAaron13: You're also supposed to do this under water

Jeane Williamson: I love this idea Nick...but how would it be if you used lights with the white cord when you fill it we with the white filler...then the cord wouldn't show. Just a thought. Gonna give this a try. Thanks. You know we make holes in bottlesd using a diamond hole bit which makes the hole...but you have to do it under r I nning water and it takes a while. I think what you are doing seems less time consuming and easier.

swampbilly peek: This was really helpful, thanks!

Mary H Nunez: Hi Nick! Thank you for your video. We had no issues with drilling the hole, however on our strand of christmas lights of 25 about 18 are burning out, and the bottle is very hot after a short period of time being plugged in. What is the longest these lights should stay plugged in, will the crystal fill help? Just feels like it's overheated, not sure what I'm doin wrong. 

Fitra Fadila: cooollll (y)

Chase Christensen: What about when your lights burn out? Haha. Great video, thank you.

Wendy Thompson: Awesome. I've just started making these and I love the crystal idea. I'm using diamond tip drill bits because I read they will last longer. How many bottles do you get out of your tips? I saw those too and wondered if they would work?

Jack Fitzgerald: Hi Nick, very nice video. I managed to successfully drill a hole. How large is your largest drill bit? I used a 5/16 inch and it is not large enough for the lights to go through. Thanks.,

reload26ny: Great video! I've wanted to make some for a few months, just wanted to wait until after Christmas, when the lights are discounted to about $1-$2. I had planned to search the web for a filler, now I don't have to. Thanks for saving me tons of time.

kmariebox1: Isn't is necessary to be lubricating the bit with water as you're drilling?

sHest013: Thanks so much for this video!! What number strand of lights do you use?

Mick Jäger: Nice work! Check on my Jäger Lamp on facebook and twitter. Keyword search JagerLamp , all one word.

Geri Kelly: hi nick, was wondering where you to purchase the light strands "off season" at a low cost. would be willing to purchase online to keep cost down. I cannot find any anywhere. any help would be very much appreciated. thanks, geri

Tom Blakeley: Thanks Nick your video helped a lot. i had been using only a 1/2 inch bit and it took forever. Thanks again.

Marisol Anthony: Make my bottles lol I'll try this!!! Thanks a lot!

Dax Nayyar: Hi, Nick this is an awesome video and i got grt knowledge from this but i want to know that did you grab the bottle hardly or it was loose @ 2.22 minute..Thanks and sorry for bad English?
