I did this upcycled light bulb project a couple years ago and never shared the tutorial on how I made them! I'm really bad about that....I have 1000's of photos of projects and never blog them. I'm going through all my stuff while I'm pregnant and needing to rest a little more.
It's a pretty easy project. I love the big round shape of these light bulbs. They are from our bathroom light fixtures. When they burn out I pull them apart to make vases.
You will need a burnt out light bulb, wire, needle nose plyers, and for safety a heavy duty glove.
I did everything over a plastic bag. The first thing you will need to do is remove the center "pin."
Once the center pin/plate is removed there is glass backing that you will chip & break away at with the plyers.
You can kind of see the black glass piece I'm pulling out.
Now you will be able to get inside the light bulb & pull the guts out.
Shake all the leftover glass pieces out of the bulb and it's ready for the wire.
I picked up wire from the Dollar Tree and wrapped a piece around itself on one side and then bringing one of the strands around to the other side and looping it through to create a hanging wire.
Hang & fill fresh flowers or use dried flowers!
I hung mine from my chandelier for a while but they are now hanging on my ladder.
I'll be doing a post on my ladder wall décor soon!
