    Upcycle Your Old Light Bulbs By Turning Them Into Vases

    A bright idea.

    by ,

    What you need:

    -Light bulb

    -Safety gloves

    -Small screw driver

    -Small plier

    -Wire hanger

    -Wire cutters


    For the bulb: (*Wear safety gloves)

    -Use small pliers to remove the thin circular covering on the base of the light bulb.

    -Use a small screw driver to break the black glass underneath. Pour out the broken fragments.

    -Use the small screw driver to break off and remove the filament.

    -Pour out any excess glass fragments.

    For the hanger stand:

    -Use wire cutter to snip off the hook of the hanger.

    -Bend the wire to create a "V" shaped stand (use the preexisting corner as the point of the triangle). You should have a long portion of the remaining wire extending upward.

    -Bend the end of the extended wire into a circle that will fit the base of the light bulb.

    -Hang your bulb on the stand, fill with your favorite flowers, and enjoy!
