How to make recycled light bulb vases

Over at the blog Sunshine Journal there is a darling idea for making recycled light bulb vases with tiny candle holders as bases. Hey Craft Gossip Recycled readers have any of you made anything with the curly newfangled light bulbs? Shoot me an email in the “suggest a post” I would love to see!

    The curly lightbulbs have mercury in them, so I wouldn’t think it is a wise idea to try to use them for crafting!

    The new energy efficient bulbs have higher levels of mercury in them (which is why they have to be recycled in a special way instead of just thrown in the garbage). Please tell people to make sure that their new bulbs are safe before cutting into them!
