The Lightbulb Goes Off! A Perfect DIY Party Decoration?

As long-lasting CFLs become the norm, we’re all starting to find ourselves with incandescent light bulbs we don’t need. There’s not much you can do with those burnt out light bulbs other than toss them (or recycle them in some locales), but what about all the unopened packages lingering in your basement or under your sink? If you’re not inclined to simply use them up since you’ve made the switch to CFLs or perhaps LEDs, why not get crafty?

The Lauren Daversa Events blog has a great tutorial for DIY light bulb vases that seems to have been cobbled together from various instructionals that were less thorough. The list of supplies one would need seems fairly straightforward, and as long as you don’t have a fear of working with glass, the instructions look pretty straightforward as well. These light bulb vases would be wonderful for a party with a pretty floral theme, but might also look great on a covered porch that wasn’t subjected to a lot of rain or variations in temperature.

If you give this tutorial a try, let us know your light bulb vases turn out!

    Incandescent light bulbs will soon be phased out because they waste a lot of energy.,“

    incandescent light generates high amounts of heat and it not energy efficient, so let’s use them all for vases! cfls ftw!

    incandescent lights use too much electricity compared to compact fluorescent lamps, but imagine how ugly this would be with cfls.
