The trend of making lightbulbs into vases is quickly catching on. How great is it to recylce an old lighbulb and turn it into something fresh, simple and beautiful? This idea can be used in array of event areas – weddings, showers, parties – or as a fun way to spruce up a space in your home.
Want to try it yourself? Here’s a tutorial we found on the Pizzazzerie blog:
STEP 1: Carefully peel off the contact at the base of the light bulb using needle-nose pliers. Lightly tap the black glass at the base of the light bulb with a hammer (be careful + wear safety goggles). It might take a bit of practice to carefully crack this black glass.
STEP 2: Remove the inner wires of the light bulb (use the needle-nose pliers or Allen wrench).
STEP 3: Fill with water + your flowers!
STEP 4 (optional): If hanging, tie light bulb with twine or ribbon and securely attach to branch or hook.
