DIY – Old light bulb vase

Hello Buddies 🙂

I am back with yet another recycle craft 🙂 This time I am going to use old light bulb . Glass vases are always pretty and charming. Instead of buying expensive glass vases. I thought of making use of the old bulbs as vases. Actually my brother gave me the idea and helped me in the difficult part of the project.light bulb vase

Working with glass is always risky and ends up on accidents. SO BE CAREFUL with it. Ok now off to the tutorial. Here’s how I made it.

Supplies required:

  • Old light bulb.
  • Scissors
  • String
  • Empty Cellophane tape roll
  • Plierslight bulb vaselight bulb vase

My Method:

  1. The most tricky and difficult part of this project is breaking and removing the lighting stuff inside the bulb. We just need empty shell
  2. Thanks to my brother and buddy 🙂 They did this part for me
  3. Safety first remember you are working with glass.
  4. First break this black material in the bulb with sharp scissors by slowly wiggling through it.light bulb vase
  5. Dig your scissors in as deep as you can and gently break the inner part then remove all those technical stuff with pliers and let the excess fall out the opening onto a newspaperInside the bulb
  6. Got the empty bulb ? The most Difficult part is over 🙂light bulb vase

Easy-Peasy Pen Stand

Hello friends 🙂

Today’s craft is really a very easy one. This one is also a craft made from waste. I told you, I am so addicted to reusing waste materials. Inspired from me my brother started collecting empty lead boxes from his friends and compelled me to do something with those small boxes. Since i didn’t think of any ideas he himself came up with this simple and creative idea of making pen stand with them 🙂Penstand

Yeah the only thing we will need to make this pen stand is empty lead boxes. (No, Not that lead ! ). These are the small boxes in which we get pencil leads. Ok look at the picture for better understanding.

Things required :

  • Empty lead boxes (19 Nos)
  • Feviquick/Any adhesive that will stick plastic
  • OHP sheet (Optional)things

Pretty simple requirements 🙂 Ok now we will start with the work.

Instructions :

  1. First step is to collect empty lead boxes. This step may take a looong time. [ Thanks to my bro 🙂 He collected it from his friends, So that became easy for me ]
  2. Now comes the messy step. Cleaning all the stickers on the sides of the boxes. My suggestion is to soak all the boxes in water for atleast one hour. You can also use vinegar instead of water.
  3. After an hour remove all the boxes and clean stickers now we have got all clean transparent boxes.
  4. Now arrange 5 lead boxes together on floor with broader side lying on floor. I used Black non transparent ones for this. And I have placed the sticker side down (So cleaning step is reduced for 5 boxes thanks for my laziness 🙂 )back side
  5. Stick all those 5 boxes to make the base of the Pen stand. Note: Arrange the boxes so that alternative box caps face opposite sides.
  6. Now the base is ready next step is building the stand. [Forgive me ! I really couldn’t explain this step in words ]. I will try my best to explain if you couldn’t follow my words take help from the pictures.
  7. Take a pair of boxes arrange it on the edge of the base. Keep the boxes with thinner side facing the floor. Now place the next pair on top of these two in the opposite edge of the Base. Repeat it alternatively.steps
  8. Put a drop of feviquick in each joints to stick it in place until you are satisfied with it’s stability.
  9. This step is optional. Since this stand is little holey (really that’s a word) So to cover up the sides you can stick OHP sheets on four sides on the inside of the stand.Penstand

Voila ! Pen stand is ready. Put in your pens and adore your desk 🙂
