Repurposed Old Light Bulb Photo

I'm working on a theme here -- see my recent post on recycling light bulbs.

Next time an incandescent bulb burns out (and after you've replaced it with an energy efficient CFL bulb or an LED bulb, of course), here's a fun project.

Once they're carefully cleaned out, these bulbs make a neat little vase.

Pretty cool!

  • What is that around the bulb making it stand erect?


  • Hi, Brandy - it's a metal wire stand that's been custom fitted. No telling where it came from; maybe a picture frame? Let us know if you figure it out!

  • Very Cleaver.  I really like this idea!
