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!

Could we please see a pic? This sounds like something that would be fun and be cute too.
This is a cute idea,I'd love to see a pix too!!! I use to paint my light bulbs too......for holidays, like Halloween was orange.I'd use just craft acrylic paint, but the glass paint has to be better. fun :)
