Waste Not Want Not

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

Light Bulb Terrarium


The following video will take you step by step in building an open terrarium from a light bulb.  These tiny gardens are a delight and I intend to make a few for myself.   Dollar store light bulbs are very inexpensive if you don’t have any used, burned out bulbs around the house.  I haven’t thought about saving light bulbs for about twenty years.  It’s been that long ago since my Mom had everybody in the family saving bulbs for her Christmas wreath made from light bulbs spayed gold.  Maybe I’ll add that to this category later.

Have fun and if you have a picture, please send it and any tips or ideas!!

Thanks to “Etsy How” for the video link!

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.
