Step 1: Open Up the Lightbulb
This is the most tricky step. If you do this without care, you can break the lightbulb. Use your Dremel/ grinder to cut away the black part of the lightbulb. When this is cut away you opened the bulb
Step 2: Clear the Inside
Use something pointy to break the glass inside the lightbulb. After you done this use the file to grind away all the sharp glass.
Step 3: Drill Some Holes
Now drill the holes for the steel wire. Make sure that you drill the holes straight, because if you don’t your lightbulb will not be able to hang straight. For this I used a wood drill because it had a pointy end. The material is really soft so this is no problem.
Step 4: Assemble
Attach the wire like on the picture. Use a tongs to twist the wire around it self
Step 5: Go Get Some Flowers
Once you bought or picked some flowers and filled your bulb with water, you can give this wonderful gift to your mother.
