DIY Beer Bottle Clock (found on Facebook) Instructions: Drink twelve beers. Make/acquire pallet. Stain wood. Purchase clock mechanism. Drill hole in middle for mechanism. Attach beer bottles. (The person who made this used a caulk gun with a product called liquid nails behind the labels of each bottle to attach them.) Voila!

Make your own shot gun shell lights. Collect some old shells and drill a small hole on the end of the shell where the load comes out. Then take a pair of scissors or a razor blade and cut a slit to the drilled hole. Push the bulb in the shell and slide the cord through the slits till the cord snaps in place where the hole is. Making these is a lot cheaper than buying them and you can make a longer strand.
