To make the glass bottle translucent, add white glue to it. Combine 1 part water and 1 part white glue. The glue and water mixture must be applied at least three times in order to get the best results. After you have applied some glue and water mixture, wait for it to completely dry before applying the next coat.

When the glue is completely dry the bottle looks like this

It is very important to use a pattern or stencil for this bottle lampshade, for example, I chose some shieluloet butterfly patterns but you could use other patterns too like a fairy or a star or even a flower, use your imagination and make an inexpensive and charming DIY glass bottle lampshade.
