Falling down the rabbit hole that is Pinterest, I finally came across something I really liked: Pill Bottle Christmas Lights. Unfortunately, I couldn't find step-by-step instructions so, in true DIY fashion, I figured it out my own damn self.
- First, get some string lights. I found these battery-operated LEDs at IKEA on the cheap. A string of 12 cost about $2. LEDs will be safer than non-LED lights. You don't want your bottles catching fire!
- Second, remove the labels from your pill bottles; unless you don't mind everyone knowing what meds you take. Now THAT could be a conversation starter!
- I thought I'd be able to drill through the plastic top, but the drill bit I had didn't work. Undeterred, I took a nail to it and hammered until it broke through. Clearly, it wasn't the nice, clean hole I was expecting.
- Nonetheless, once I threaded the light through the hole, I taped the top to keep it in place. Easy peasy! The project took about 10-15 minutes.
