Over a year ago I ran across a tutorial for turning a light bulb into bud vase. I loved the look, so sleek and modern, and had planned on making one as a Christmas gift but ran out of time. Since then I have started seeing more examples of this idea. This is such a great way to upcycle your light bulbs when they stop working for their intended purpose. First up is the tutorial for cleaning out the innards of the bulb and then a few pretty pictures for inspiration. Just click on the pictures to take you to the source for more information.
