Great way to light up the path to your door, back yard, party, or special occasion. These bulb lights are quick and easy to make and can be hung up or set on a table, walkway, road, etc. We used a couple different color LEDs to see the affect of them. Ally Cat liked the green and Kitty Cat loved the blue. So easy to make that we had Cool Cat make his own (he's eight).
Step 1: Materials
3/4" PVC Pipe - Cut in 1" ring OR Film Canister
Step 2: Drill
Make sure you have plenty of extra room. The hot glue, a few steps later, will be
rubbed all the way off if the opening is not big enough.
Step 3: Make the "Candle"
See our other instructable for more examples.
Step 4: Set the "Bulb"
Step 5: Add Battery and Enjoy the Glow
Step 6: Place Your Lights
We used these to light the path to a recent sweet 16 birthday party and to shine a light on a flyer we made. These look great around the pool, walking up to the house, on the porch, in the windows. Use your imagination and let us know what else we could do.
Step 7: Other Ideas
We used a left over piece of PVC pipe to place the "bulb" on. It may not look like it that much in the picture but it really looks like an old regular (incandescent) light bulb. Make sure the magnet and battery fit into the PVC and glue it place, if desired.
In the second picture we used a translucent (almost but not quite clear) film canister. Making it look grand and giving it a more all around glow.
We had the light bulb hanging upside down from the curtain rod and it also made a great overhead light.
Please share ideas. We already have a few of our own but that maybe for another time / instructable ;-)
