Recently I have been hoarding burnt out light bulbs. I use lamps in my antique booth and I seem to go through several light bulbs a month. (I love that they are making energy efficient bulbs that look like old fashioned bulbs, instead of those swirly, twisty things.) I knew there must be something I could do with them, and so of course I checked on Pinterest and found some ideas for turning them into pears. WHO KNEW!!! I also just happened to have a big roll of jute rope that I found at Goodwill for fifty cents.
All I needed now was my trusty little glue gun. I dug down into the tombs and sure enough there it was.
Ugh, my photos from today are really blurry. It is so dark and gloomy out. Once I had gathered my supplies, the rest was really easy. (except for all of the times I glued my fingers together with hot glue) I just wrapped the jute around the light bulb, gluing as I went. I added a piece of a tree limb I found outside for the stem and they were done.
I think they are pretty cute. Next time I think I will try wrapping some with twine and also covering others with strips of old book pages.
This business of crafting is pretty addictive.
I hope you have a wonderful day.
