7 Bright Ideas for Old Light Bulbs

If you can't stand the idea of tying a birthday present with a wrinkled piece of ribbon, all you need is a slightly warm light bulb that hasn't been lit for more than five minutes. Simply run the length of the wrinkled ribbon across the top of the warm light bulb until the wrinkles go away, saving you the time of finding your iron and ironing board.

Once the light bulb is out of energy, you can then use it for various uses. Like an upside-down vase or a very small terrarium. Or, if you're more savvy with crafts and tools, a small snow globe or a DIY oil lamp.

You can also use larger bulbs to make a very small planter to add a little greenness to your home.
