DIY Light Bulb Vase

What you need: 

  • A light bulb (any shape or size will work!) 
  • Pliers
  • Gardening wire.


  1. First you need to remove the little silver layer on the bottom of the light bulb.  Work the pliers under the layer to create a little lip, and then you should be able to peel it right off with the pliers.
  2. Now you have to remove the black cap from the bottom of the light bulb. This was the most difficult part for me – you DEFINITELY want to wear safety goggles and be extremely careful, as it is glass.  
  3. Once the black glass was removed it was really easy to get the little glass tube and wiring on the inside of the bulb out – I simply tapped it with the pliers and it broke right off.
  4. Add flowers and water, and hang with the gardening wire!

Fitness Tip

Don't skip breakfast. It is important to start up your metabolism. Hunger sets in long before it's time for lunch, so those who haven't had breakfast often reach for snacks that are high in fat or sugar.

Pregnancy Tip

Exercise! Starting now will help you stay in shape during pregnancy, can lower your risk of miscarriage, and has been proven to help reduce labor complications and length.
