Waste Not Want Not

Discovering ways to re-purpose discards, making items from scratch and being self-sufficient.

Light Bulb Oil Lamp

Light Bulb Oil Lamp

Now this is really a neat project.  Because it is an open flame, I suggest that you use these outside or purchase a glass chimney that will fit over the finished lamp.  These little delights (no pun intended) could be used on your picnic table or as ambient lighting.

Below is a video that is very informative for making your little lamps and I found that the instructor left out at least two important items you should use when making your lamp.  Gloves and safety glasses are a must when working with glass, especially with the thin glass of which light bulbs are made.

Enjoy and send your comments about this great little project!


Author: Waste Not Want Not

I'm on a mission to connect with others interested in self-sufficiency, re-purposing items, gardening, cooking and making things from scratch. Having reached my "golden years" I'm concerned that many people today don't have skills that have been forgotten over the years. It is my desire to bring together stories, ideas, projects, recipes and remedies so everyone interested will have the opportunity to learn and pass these ideas and projects on to the next generations.
