Want to channel your inner Martha Stewart and have an excuse for inviting friends over to help you drink some wine? We've got you covered. All you need is a little DIY magic from Chris "The DIY Guy" Tice, and voila - you've got a wine bottle chandelier.

Chris is an army veteran and DIY expert. This Florida native has worked with electrical applications in both commercial and residential facilities for over a decade. He claims that doing a lot of kitchen and bath remodeling during high school helped mold him into a DIY addict.

Chris says that people love the look and functionality of the recycled bottle lighting fixture, particularly when it's made with dark green bottles, but the intimidation factor of cutting glass is pretty high. He's got a simple solution: just add hot water.

Check out Chris' step-by-step instructions (with photos!) on his blog to learn how to make this wine bottle chandelier yourself, and visit him in person at the Jacksonville Home + Patio Show, October 2-5, 2014. Chris will present four DIY demonstrations daily - like how to install LED lighting under cabinets. He'll be joined at the show by other DIY and home improvement experts including The Fabulous Beekman Boys, Brent Ridge and Josh Kilmer-Purcell.
