Repurposed inspiration - Light Bulbs

These incandescent light bulbs are quickly becoming a thing of the past. Most of us now use CFL bulbs. 
James and I love the look of the incandescent bulbs and even though they may not be the best to use around the house for lighting, we can use them in many other ways...

 These hanging vases are my next project. I want to hang them on our porch with some fun (fake) flowers and maybe even one or two that just has water to create rainbows on the floor. 
You can find instructions here.

Seriously, this is the most adorable valentine project EVER. 
I might have to do this for James to put on his desk at work.
