Introduction: Easter Egg LED Lamp

I had two fluorescent lights blow out this week, so I took them apart ....of course!

So I put LED Tea Lights in Tea and Sake cups that my wife Laurie had thrown, and faster than a Bunny; Egg Lamps!
Happy Easter!

Step 1: Removing the Bulb

Wearing gloves I removed the first Bulb, it came off really easy as if the glue had melted!

Step 2: Second Bulb

The second bulb took more .... ah.... "help".
I was a little harder but gave under firm pulling.

Step 3: Bulb Removed

Not bad, though the second one had a sharp edge were it broke a small peice off.
This i filed with a diamond file.

Step 4: Led Lights Added

I have both tea lights and flickering tea lights and found a tea cup that fit the Bulb.

Step 5: $1.99 Xmas String.

I also had this nice cheap sting of AA powered blinky Xmas lights that gave a neat effect.

Step 6: It All Comes Together....

Now with the bulbs fitted to the cups and the lights installed time to test.

Step 7: Thats It!

Very pleasing and simple!
"Parts is Parts", as I like to say.
Save your old stuff and Make someting new out of it!
Happy Easter!

    yeah that is a great shape I thoughtit was a real egg at first.

    I did try some real eggs, it was messy and just too small.

    very cool havr you tried it with replacement globes from the hardware store

    Works well with all the sizes I tried, but really like the egg sized best.
    Thank you! kkb

     Thank you for liking my LED Lamp. I wanted to repurpose the old light parts.

    It is great.
    You can make it even controllable with RGB LED Lights inside the bulb.

    SJ, Thank you , My wife Laurie was one reason I made these, we used to burn real candles in the house, but went to LED's a few years back. The LED's are nice but the need to be inside something to really "Shine"!
