Anyway, I think that as the world switched to CFL's its is a shame to throw away all those wonderful light bulbs. After all, the CFL might give light, but it is not a cultural icon like the light bulb. I mean, when was the last time someone got an idea and a CFL appeared above their head? Exactly.
With that said here is another little project I've been playing around with in my head for a while. Its quick and fun. As an added bonus you get to reuse a burned out light bulb and make a novel night light that uses no electricity.
Hope you enjoy.
Step 1: Supplies
Burned Out Light Bulb
Glow in the Dark Paint*
5 Minuet Epoxy (optional, for gluing bulb to base)
Ceramic Light Bulb Fixture
Flat Head Screwdriver
Needle Nose Pliers
Cup of Some Sort
