A cheerful lil' bud vase

I have been trying to come up with a a cute way to display flowers around the house since we are surrounded by lovely flowers everywhere! However, I have been trying not to spend too much casharoonie lately, as I am saving for the little man's first birthday bash! Recently I shared with you guys how I used my old glass recyclables and some left over spray paint to create these fun vases....
so last night I found myself with a broken light bulb...hence this was created....


...I thought it was so cheerful...but it was missing a little pazazz....so I added a little bling to it...& then I felt like it was perfect...


The best part was the cost was FREE & I was super excited about it. So I thought you guys might want to make some of your own light bulb bud vases....they're easy & cheerful, don't you think? If anything what a great way to recycle. So this is how I did it with a few simple steps & the help of my handy assistant the Hubs....
 step 1: Remove the bottom of the bulb carefully, the Hubs used an angle grinder.
 step 2: He then made the hole a little bigger with a drill bit & threw away the insides of the broken bulb.
 Step 3: I dug out my crafty wire for the rest of the project....
 Step 4: (the hubs helped me to photograph this shot...these are NOT my man hands hahah.) Then we made a loop as a handle and got ready to wrap the wire around it....over and over again.
Step 5: We wrapped the wire around the loop what seemed to be 1000 times & then it was ready to fill with water & flowers....to add a little sparkle I added a vintage shoe clip...but you could use any brooch, earring, or jewel from your craft store.

Overall, pretty simple. I hope you make some and enjoy them as much as I think I am going to. ;.)

  1. I love your idea, especially for "rooting" cuttings from the garden, to replant in the Spring!
