You can use them as vases to keep plants or flowers or use them for creating a funky modern lamp.
How to Make the Most of Your Old Light Bulbs?
In the age of conserving resources and protecting the environment from the damaging effects of the harmful gasses, the best way to use your discarded, unbroken light bulbs is by transforming them into decorative pieces. Craft a freaky chandelier with a cluster of the light bulbs. Let a small plant thrive in it. You can also make use of the light bulbs as miniature flower vases to bedeck the nooks and corners of your house. You can use it as a fish bowl as well. Another innovative way of using your light bulb would be as a salt and pepper shaker. Use it as a container for keeping spices in your kitchen.
How to Convert a Light Bulb into a Vase?
You need pliers, screwdriver and a drill for creating a tiny plant holder from a light bulb. First, clean the bulb with toilet paper and water. Next, remove the kaolin from the white bulb with tremors and salt. Then fill it up with water and insert the plant through the hole drilled into it.
DIY with light bulbs crafts thus can serve a host of purposes other than lighting up your house. Here’s an amazing gallery of ideas to apply your creativity.
