DIY Light Bulb Vases
Beautifully incorporate an industrial, Steampunk or eco-friendly look into any wedding reception with these light bulb vases. Essentially, all you need to recreate these little vases is to cut the very top of the lightbulb off with pliers, pull out the guts of the light bulb, set it on a napkin ring or hang them and fill with water. You can buy new bulbs or save old one’s that have burned out which costs you nothing to recreate this project.
Here’s how it’s done…
Step 1: Using pliers you need to remove the little silver layer on the bottom of the light bulb. Work the pliers under the layer to create a little lip, and then you should be able to peel it right off with the pliers.
Step 2: Now you have to remove the black cap from the bottom of the light bulb. You should wear safety goggles and be extremely careful, as it is glass. Work the pliers into the hole left after you remove the silver cap, and snap the glass. Use the pliers to tap the rest of the black glass off the bulb.
Step 3: Now just remove all the guts and your done!sources… Indulgy Charming Recycling Hypnotic Mushroom Reuse and Upcycle Sweet Fancy Designs Sugar and Fluff
