want to turn a "dead" lightbulb into a neighborhood dazzler? i have finally invented ... the lightbulb sand flower ball!!!
Step 1: Intro 2
i came up with this idea ... randomly! its funky, fresh, and environmentally safe! lets go!
Step 2: Toooolzz...
1 light bulb
1 pair of needle nosed plyers
1 knife (dont cut youreself!)
1/4 cup'o salt
sum tin foil...
a lot of sand, sugar, or salt
1 fake flower
food coloring, fruits, or shirt(s).
Step 3: Deplatement!
remove the little thin thingy (shown below) by gettin the knife under 1 end and usin those plyers to pull it off (make sure the bulb is in the sock at all times!!!)
Step 4: Chisel Time
use the screw driver to chisel off the coneish- shaped black stuff on the end of the bulb (be patient, it will come off...).
Step 5: Powderin Up!
carefully use the chisel to crush up the glass and wires inside it, not the shell! empty them out.
Step 6: Cleanin, Sorta
put about 2 tbsp of salt in it and swirl the bulb around untill it is clear. empty.
Step 7: Makin Some Sticky Sand!
put some sand or salt/sugar in a pot of boiling water with food coloring or fruit skin and let it soak up the color.
Step 8: "funk" Effect and Drying
after boiled, drain of all the water and peels. empty the sand, ect. onto a plate and spread out. if followed correctly, it should look as is below. after wards, allow to dry for 45 min, occationally adding salt.
Step 9: Bottling Your Funk!
layer your colors inside the bulb in a funky way! i chose yellow and white, metro...!
Step 10: Funky ,freaky, and Finished!
simply put some tin foil on the tip and put in your flower or flowers!!!
