No instructions, but doesn't look to be too difficult.

Oh my, I love those. My only fear would be the wind blowing them over and the glass breaking from the ones with the glass bottoms. The brass bottomed lamps would be best. We made our two birdbaths from heavy plastic planters and the round dish (planter drain tray) put on top. We glued them all together with a silicone glue and they have lasted now for several years.

I took an old brass tall table lamp and attached a planter filled with sand to the top, then painted "Put Your Butts Here" on it. It is still at the end of our sidewalk.

I think you're right, Linda! I'd be afraid the glass ones would break in the wild winds we have here. Wonder if filling the glass bottoms with sand or rocks would give it enough weight to stabilize it? Guess it would still depend on how strong the winds are. I just thought it was clever use of lamp bottoms. I always see the lamp bottoms at Goodwill, but rarely do they have shades. Guess they get too brittle with the light bulb heat.
Clever "ashtray" you made!!! Like the saying, too!
