This is a fun way to use a burnt out incandescent bulb that would otherwise be thrown out.

Approximate Time: 30 minutes

Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. Start with an incandescent light bulb that has been previously hollowed out. There are some excellent tutorials online showing how to do this.
  2. Take the screw and start twisting it into the threads on one side of the bulb's aluminum cap to make a small hole. Twist it back out and make another hole across from the first on the opposite side.
  3. Fill the bulb carefully with your pebbles, then your dirt, and finally your moss and treasures.
  4. Use the pencil to move and push things so they are arranged to your liking.

  6. Using the holes you made in the cap of the bulb, thread your string through and tie it into a knot.
