… and make something beautiful. Or should I say grow something beautiful :) Since it’s not really a flower season I couldn’t just go out and pick pretty flowers to put them in my new little light bulb vase. But luckily I had some leftovers from my cat grass seeds. So I just planted them in a light bulb and in a few days this happened:
I really would prefer a flower. Since I didn’t want it to be too boring (it still is a bit boring :/ ) I painted the screw cap with nail polish to add some sparkle. I really can’t wait for spring, so I can make something like this:
Those are some pretty cool ideas :)
Below are some basic tips on how to hollow out a light bulb. For more detailed (and fun) instructions you can visit this page.
STEP 1: Carefully peel off the contact at the base of the light bulb using needle-nose pliers. Lightly tap the black glass at the base of the light bulb with a hammer (be careful + wear safety goggles). It might take a bit of practice to carefully crack this black glass.
STEP 2: Remove the inner wires of the light bulb.
STEP 3: Fill with water + your flowers!
STEP 4 (optional): If hanging, tie light bulb with twine or ribbon and securely attach to branch or hook.
Oh, I almost forgot… seems to me that terrariums are also very popular lately, but they’re
just not as pretty as flowers :)
