if you have an electric fridge then here is a simple modification, substitute the usual 15W bulb with a string of bulbs, salvaged from a set of christmas tree lights. in ireland and europe the mains supply is 240VAC so i used 20 bulbs of 12V each wired in series, in japan with 100VAC 8 bulbs would be good, and in the us of a 10 bulbs would do.

.... be wary and respectful of mains electricty..... it can give you a horrible shock, burn you, or permanently damage parts of you resulting in death. a safety measure to take is encase your project in plastic with no exposed metal parts.
very pretty! wonder though will anything else will fit in the but lights?:)<br>that' a diet. <br>more seriously, found it really cool, i would like to ask how the substitution happens, do you wire the christmas light strings into the usual bulb?
ha ha... you could also wire a radio cassette player into the bulb, or anything else that will be happy with 15 watts of mains voltage.<br>since your question i've added some image notes to explain better, in this project i soldered the wires on to the old bulb, in another project, &quot;happy extractor fan&quot; i used the screw part of an energy saving bulb which had sufficient wires to attach by twisting the string of lights.
