I had just built my bedroom shop and wanted to make something.  So I found a lightbulb (blown) and started my first project.  I drew what I wanted it to look like so I would know what materials I would need. 

Step 1: Materials

1 globe style clear light bulb
 for cutting off base of bulb
Yea, I was a little skeptical when I saw that you were using a light bulb. They tend to be quite fragile. I'd recommend using something like a perfume bottle or something made of thicker, less disposable, higher quality glass.
I really like this idea! I think I will make one soon. Only thing I would say is that it would be nicer to have some clearer pictures. These are a little fuzzy! Good job besides that! :D
This project is really cool, is there anyway that you could change your intro image to be a bit clearer? Thanks! <br />Audrey
Sure! Be happy to. Thanks for viewing my instructable.
Oh the tragedy, as I was re taking the pics my sphere broke when it got bumped. My mom is going shopping this Friday and will buy me another bulb to try again. I will post a new pic when done.
