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!
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. <br> Thank you! kkb <br>
As summer comes, I think that you may do not want to wear <a href="http://www.ugglinks.com/" rel="nofollow"><b>UGG Boots</b></a>. It is said that if you want to put your ugg boots up, you had better place a support plate into the <b><a href="http://www.ugglinks.com/ugg-bailey-button-c-66.html" rel="nofollow">UGG Classic Boots</a></b>, if not, you may also use newspaper. The general newspaper is the best choice. When you use it, you can feel that it can help you avoid moisture and odor. You don&rsquo;t need to fill up, you just need to hold up slightly and to leave gaps. From <a href="http://www.ugglinks.com/" rel="nofollow"><b>UGG Boots Outlet</b></a>.
&nbsp;I love this project! Great job!
&nbsp;Thank you for liking my LED Lamp. I wanted to repurpose the old light parts.<br /> Kkb
It is great.<br /> You can make it even controllable with RGB LED Lights inside the bulb.<br /> <br /> <br />
&nbsp;Yeah,<br /> &nbsp;I have some RGB type LED Tea Lights for the Holidaze, Will tear one apart soon too.<br /> Swell thank you for the Comment .<br /> <br /> Kent
<strong>Wife loved it!.</strong><br/>
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"!
Wow. This is very eggy. :P
Yeah, It turned out that way. I had held on to the glass after the bulb burned out thinking there may be a use.
Even though I was expecting eggs, like real eggs, this is much more excellent. Amazing result, the Instructable was well written out, the pictures are great. Keep up the great work, I'll see if I can do this or not. And I like that Makers: thing that you have. +5/5 stars. Go eggs!
Thank you for your comment. Something is not trash until there is no other use for it.... This was a fun one to Make too!
very professional looking! +1
