I’ve been holding on to a few expired light bulbs with the thought that I would work with them somehow – here are a few ideas for reusing dead bulbs…
Make a glass sculpture by hot gluing the bulbs together at their bases.
An interesting piece to set on the coffee table – my kids really like this one.
Start by gluing together four bulbs of equal size and add bulbs on to build your design.
For this design, I hot glued the bulbs into a three dimensional star shape and then wrapped the center with jute. You could line your mantel with a few of these or set a great centerpiece for a dinner party.
A bauble for my desk – to keep the ideas coming.
They may be burned out, but they can still hold light – try using them with candles.
Place a small glass cylinder inside of a larger one, fill the space with bulbs and you've got an interesting display of glass and light.
I’m listening to Room For Squares tonight.
