Picture of Miniature Warehouse 13 Tesla Gun
Here is a tiny Tesla Gun from the TV show Warehouse 13.  It uses a burnt out christmas light bulb as the "vacuum tube".  If you want, you can attach a small ring or cord, like I did, so you can use it as a keychain.

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials
-old Christmas light bulb
-scrap pieces of sheet metal; I used aluminum
-paint: black and silver (bronze or gold would be better, but I didn't have any)
-JB Weld
-paperclip (optional, only if you want to add a cord or keyring)
-cord or keyring (optional)
-Mod Podge (optional)

-metal cutters
-wire cutters (optional)
-detail paintbrush (I used a toothpick, which worked fairly well)

Cute. that'd be just about the right size for a LEGO "minifig", wouldn't it?
Good luck for the Pocket-Sized contest!
I also entered my miniature gun.

Thanks, good luck to you too! I read your instrucable and thought it was cool. It's fun to make things out of little household items, isn't it?
Sure is. Sometimes I just see a small object and think,"that looks out of place" or "that looks just like..." and I then try to make it into that.
