burnt bulb = pear

How often do you change your light bulbs?
Since moving into our bungalow we have probably changed a dozen bulbs and with each discarded light I wondered if I should hang onto it for some kind of "project". I stumbled upon a new use for an old light bulb! It only requires some twine, a twig, the light bulb and glue. I think a grouping of these pears would look pretty cool in a bowl or a glass vessel of some sort. What do you think?









Such a neat idea!

  1. Hey, love this! What a good idea. One question, though... what happens if you drop it or your kids use it as a spaceship?

    Pinned...

    1. good question, lets hope i never find out! Actually I plan on making a few of these and putting them in a clear vase i have on my bookshelf. Mind you if one broke I would assume the string would keep most of hte broken glass together

  4. This is so cute! I wish I would have seen this before we changed out all our bulbs to the fluorescent ones. I'll keep my eyes peeled for someone discarding them. Thanks for sharing.
