Upcycled Lightbulb Centerpiece

Buzzfeed recently asked me to participate in their DIY craft series. I was thrilled to be invited but also a bit intimidated. I’m crafty in a glitter and glue gun sort of way, but the theme was Lightbulbs. Eek. Luckily, my husband knows his way around Radio Shack and was willing to dedicate quite a bit of time to creating battery-powered lights to make my lightbulb centerpiece idea see the light of day.  Thank you, Joe. I could never have done this one without you.

So check out 3 Things to Do with Old Lightbulbs for details on my project above, along with a few other crafty ideas for putting old lightbulbs to use.

    • Love the candle idea. I made the lights because it was the theme of the challenge, but I love the mold and was thinking of other things I could do with it. I might also try planting tiny succulents … although I’m not very good at keeping those alive.

    • Hi Sue,
      You have to disconnect the wire from the battery. The battery provides the power, so removing the connection from the light bulb to the battery turns the bulb off. Hope that helps!
