  • Hollowing The Bulbs:
For this lamp to look nice the small black piece of glass on the base of the bulb must remain intact, which means the entire base must be removed. (as opposed to breaking the glass off)

  • Make sure that the wick does not have a wire center and is made for an oil lamp. Depending on the width of the wick you may have to double it like I did. (If the wick is too thin it will not soak up the oil fast enough for a continuous burn.

  • The base must be removable to allow refueling, and though it would probably stay on because of its weight, I attached it with magnets.
On the glass part of the bulb where base attaches to the inside of the base. Attached a magnet to each side of the base using epoxy. On both sides of the bulb

  • Place the spherical magnet in the bulb. Fill it with oil.  To do so easily place a straw in the bulb, put the magnet in it, and push with a skewer.
Use a funnel to fill your bulbs, place the lid on. Do not pick up when lite bulbs move easy
