I had two fluorescent lights blow out this week, so I took them apart ....of course!
So I put LED Tea Lights in Tea and Sake cups that my wife Laurie had thrown, and faster than a Bunny; Egg Lamps!
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Removing the Bulb
Wearing gloves I removed the first Bulb, it came off really easy as if the glue had melted!
Step 2: Second Bulb
The second bulb took more .... ah.... "help".
I was a little harder but gave under firm pulling.
Step 3: Bulb Removed
Not bad, though the second one had a sharp edge were it broke a small peice off.
This i filed with a diamond file.
Step 4: Led Lights Added
I have both tea lights and flickering tea lights and found a tea cup that fit the Bulb.
Step 5: $1.99 Xmas String.
I also had this nice cheap sting of AA powered blinky Xmas lights that gave a neat effect.
Step 6: It All Comes Together....
Now with the bulbs fitted to the cups and the lights installed time to test.
Step 7: Thats It!
Very pleasing and simple!
"Parts is Parts", as I like to say.
Save your old stuff and Make someting new out of it!
