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!
