OMG! This is gorgeous. This vase looks so simple and delicate yet chic and stylish and perfect for a minimalist. I love how the base of the stand is folded differently so you can get as creative as you can. This is something you wouldn't let a kid do on their own.

That's quite a creative project. I would never have thought of making a flower vase out of an old lightbulb, but they are really pretty when they are done. It does make me tense thinking about how easily that thin glass shatters, though. Still, I think it would be fun to try.

I could kick myself for tossing out all of my used light bulbs. I even had some crystal clear ones that would have been great to use for this idea. Oh well, better late than never. This is a simple yet genius idea. Now I just need to be careful making them as I am a tad on the clumsy side.

This is so cute! Not only would it look great in any home, but it's also such a great recycled craft to take advantage of all those old light bulbs!
