Light Bulb Vases – what a simple, easy, and beautiful diy idea for flower vases. You can either choose to mount the bulb to some sort of base to use them as standing vases, or use wire to use them as hanging lightbulb vases. I also like the idea of using burlap & lace, ribbon or twine to disguise the metal section. Gorgeous!
What You Will Need:
Clear lightbulbs in any shape
Needle Nose Pliers
Wire for hanging
A base & glue if using them as standing vases
Remove the very bottom metal piece with a pair of pliers. Once it’s been removed use your pliers or a screwdriver to break the glass that’s located below the metal. Most light bulbs have a couple of layers of glass inside, so you might have to do a little bit of digging. Wear protective glasses in case of flying glass.
For a standing light bulb vase, you can glue the bulb to a base, such as large washers, pieces of wood for a rustic look, or anything that is flat and supportive. For hanging light bulb vases, use wire to tie a handle and then use twine to hang. Voila, Easy and super cute flower vases!
