You are now finished! take a deep breath, pat your self on the back and enjoy the outcome of your hard labor :) I hope you liked this fun little proje...
In this fun how-to I will show you how to make a candle lightbulb! It is a great conversation piece and its fun to make! Now this project is a bit out of my zone, I am an electronics guy and have no past expierence in candle making so if I did something you think I can improve on please let me know :) This instructable does require a few steps that are a little risky, such as boiling and breaking glass, so please do this at your own risk, I am not responsible for any damage done to anything or anyone.
The two major things needed is a lightbulb and around 15 tealight candles (white). The amount of tealight candles depends on a few things,One how big the light bulb is and two how long you let the wax boil. Other things needed are; Metal bowl/ pot, screw driver, sharp razor knife, light socket (I found a broken one in my garage) and a few other random things I will introduce later.
Step 2: Preparing the lightbulb
The pictures of this step got corrupted while transfering :/ but I will do my best to describe what to do. This is an easy step but it is risky , Take the sharp razor knife and cut the bottom of the lightbulb off, once there is an opening into the bulb take a flat head screwdriver and break the glass mount part, after that is broken work on getting the glass shards out and the filament. You are basically gutting the lightbulb. You can look this step up on youtube. I washed the inside of the bulb out after I gutted it.
