The idea of turning burned-out incandescent light bulbs into vases and terrariums has made the blogosphere and Pinterest rounds. If you haven’t come across it and/or haven’t read a useful tutorial explaining how to open up bulbs and clean them out, check out this Freepeople post or this one from Instructables.

You can also use old light bulbs to make candle holders. Simply use some Epoxy 500 glue, or any other strong resin-based glue for glass, glue the rounded edge to a piece of glass or an old CD and voila!
