Bright Ideas for Upcycling Lightbulbs

I love it when someone finds an artistic and creative new use for something that most folks would consider trash, such as a used, burned out incandescent light bulb.  Believe it or not, once you remove the metal part, the glass bulb actually becomes stronger because you have removed the vacuum pressure.

Check out these bright ideas and maybe you too will have 
a light bulb moment!
