Light Bulb Vases... {Upcycled Delicate Decor}

Good morning friends stopping in today.. Hope you are having a lovely start to your 
1st weekend of 2012! I am thrilled to share some fun decor I created for our kitchen window
with you today.. I have been admiring glass vases lately made using old light 
bulbs and LOVE the idea of Upcycling instead of simply recycling! :))
My Take On It..? I Created my own yesterday and would LOVE for you to
be the judge.. I personally ADORE THEM!! Here's the fun tutorial for YOU!!
Upcycled Light Bulb Vases
...............J'Adore!!

These where a bit tricky to put together but after breaking one and walking on egg shells
with the other's I finally completed them with SMILES..I have to be honest, they were NOT 
fun in the beginning, but the hope of getting to decorate them after the fact was WORTH
me not giving up.. Want to give them a shot..? Here are the fun artsy items needed!
Lots Of Patience Needed...Payoff = Pretty Priceless..!!

* Artsy Items Needed *
Used Bulbs
Floral Pieces Of Choice
Wire Color Of Choice
* Lets Get Crafty *
(Use this AWESOME CUTE tutorial HERE to open up the bulbs)
(SCAREDY ME -- I couldn't get into the tutorial so to open up my bulbs, I removed 
the little metal top piece using pliers and used a knife to carefully remove the top black 
cover. I then broke the inner piece with my screw driver and used the knife to carefully 
weave out everything! PLEASE make sure to wear gloves and protective glasses)
After removing the glass and opening the bulb, I took some wire and wrapped
it around the top of the bulb to create a loop for hanging. Be careful during this
process as the bulb is so fragile and can crack very easily.. Create a secure loop.
Once your loop is in place, it's time to have some FUN decorating your bulbs!

I wanted something a bit coastal to match the theme on the kitchen pane. I placed
some sea shell's into the vase and added some bamboo and pretty flower's --TADAAA!
REALLY ......THAT'S IT!! VERY SIMPLE AND PRETTY!!!
What do you think..? Hope you enjoyed this pretty and fun tutorial here 
today and get to add these fun upcycled decor to your lovely homes...
THANKS SO MUCH FOR STOPPING IN...
Wishing you an excellent and fun filled weekend!

  1. Awesome, did you melt the bottoms so they would be flat?

  2. Thanks SO much Rachel.. No, I didn't, I made them for hanging so in the photo by the window, they are leaning.. I ended up hanging them to a drift wood branch as part of my window treatment in my kitchen.. :))
