A fun craft and garden decor idea is to take old light bulbs and paint them. Glass paint is the best option but you can use spray paint as well. Once painted in a design or color of your choice take a high gage wire, I use 20 gauge copper, and wrap around the base. You can wrap some around the bulb as well, if wanted. Then you can hot glue glass stones or little trinkets on the wire. Attach to your average garden stake with wire and a bit of hot glue and plant! I make mine with wire leaves to look like flowers and even bugs. Its really just what ever you want. Beware of children though or you may have one trying to smell your table lamps!

Here are questions related to Uses for Light Bulbs (Incandescent).
I have empty light bulbs, just normal 60W bulbs with the inside pulled out. The end is open, and I was wondering what I could do with them. Any ideas? I thought about making a candle, inside the upside-down bulb, but there's not enough oxygen that gets into it. Any ideas would be appreciated! I'm sure there's something really cool I could do with them.
About the lightbulbs, I just saw them hanging upside down with flowers in them. Maybe you could also root plants in them too, hanging from limbs in the trees. Don't know about making candles, hopefully someone does for that sounds cool.
