After you’ve made the switch to CFLs, you’re often faced with a disposal dilemma. What to do with all those old standard light bulbs? Just ask flight attendant turned stay-at-home mom and Girl in Air blogger Michell, who came up with this creatively cute solution that’s sure to put a smile on anyone’s face.
Whether you want to show someone you care with a homemade gift or just brighten up a room on your home, this quick and easy craft project is the perfect reuse idea for your old light bulbs.
In her detailed tutorial, Michell transforms a standard light bulb into an adorable picture display and uses a salvaged wood block as a mount and mini message board. Cover a scrap of wood from home remodeling or a piece from a child’s forgotten block set with chalkboard paint, and jot down notes of love for an added “aww” factor.
