LIGHT BULB PLANTERS
You will not see the bulbs as flower pots for the first time, but today we will be the ones making them. As you will see old bulbs, filaments, we will use it for this boat, which is already worn bulbs. Bulbs that are not already used, and now we can give it a second life and it’s beautiful.
The materials we will need:
– Hot silicone – Optional
The first thing we will do is to remove the bulb socket, we will use pliers to do this. Using pliers, remove the black centerpiece above the bushing.
When we take it out, we will touch it with the same pliers to break the small piece of glass that holds the filaments. This piece is perhaps one of the most difficult because it is a delicate piece, and if we swim in the sea with blows, we will break the whole bulb.
After breaking this central piece of glass, we will try to eliminate the entire perimeter of the circle to eliminate all possible sudden spikes after the impact.
Since we break the part inward, it will remain with the filaments in the bulb, now it’s time to remove them. The best way is to turn the bulb upside down, then with a cotton swab dipped in alcohol, we clean the glass of the bulb both inside and outside.
If we want the bulb to stop and not hang, the next step will be to take a hot silicone gun and place three small balls under the bulb, so we will prevent it from being rounded, falling. This way you will survive.
We can also refer to self-adhesive silicone tears, it is easy to find even in the China store.
The last step would be to put the flowers inside. You can put them naturally with a little water or cloth. There are many beautiful and real imitations today.
If you want to hang them, take a cotton cord and roll it around the lid. The last thing to do is hang it in a corner of the room.
As a tip, I would recommend making three bulbs with different plants, better, if you are using cables of different lengths.
