Make a unique light feature with recycled bulbs

Comments (1)

bulb%20feature.jpgGiving up old-style bulbs but not sure what to do with the collection you've stockpiled over the years? Why not use them to create a really stylish light feature.

The 'bright idea' comes from Bulbs Unlimited, a website dedicated to recycling bulbs. There's a six-step tutorial here on how to make the funky light object pictured above, which essentially uses old bulbs as the shades for new, eco-friendly ones. And if this one isn't to your taste, there's a whole gallery of alternative styles here. [Via Crafty Crafty]
