Go ahead, take a moment to drink it in.
So, you want to make some concrete lightbulbs?
First, make a mental note.
Never throw away an old lightbulb ever again.
Got it? Ok, gather your old lightbulbs.
You need to hollow and clean out the bulbs. You can find simple detailed instructions on exactly how to do that here. Don’t let this step intimidate you. It’s easier than it sounds.
Use a funnel to fill each lightbulb. In order to make this step easier, I added a little extra water to the concrete to make it a bit thinner. Shake the lightbulb and gently pound it on your leg to help the concrete settle and get out the air bubbles.
Allow your lightbulbs to dry for 3 days. Then it’s time to get the glass off. Tapping the lightbulb with a screwdriver will be enough to crack the glass. Once the glass is removed go over your lightbulbs with a brush to ensure all glass dust is taken care of.
I’ll say it again; concrete lightbulbs.
Hmm, I wonder where Meg got that awesome wood bowl?
Homegoods is the answer you’re looking for.
Until next time….
