DIY Project: Repurpose a Light Bulb!

Ever wonder what you can do with a burned out lightbulb? Here is a creative and eco-friendly idea found on instructables.com that will help you repurpose your old lightbulbs into mini terrariums or planters! One IMPORTANT note: make sure NOT to use fluorescent light bulbs as they contain phosphor which is toxic.

First, follow these steps on how to hollow out a lightbulb. Please make sure an adult is nearby to supervise these steps. Then go ahead and fill your mini terrarium with moss, soil, and rocks from your backyard! To stand up your lightbulb, some ideas include using an aluminum ring from an old hard drive, or constructing a stand from a piece of wire.

Get creative and have fun with this project!

Good Happens.

Pay it Forward!
