Twine Pears

Inspired by a photo on pinterest {I couldn't find any actual directions} I saved a couple of burned out light bulbs and had fun making these twine pears the other day! Looking back at the original photo now, I'd say I didn't wrap these enough to even out their shape. But, I don't mind - they are fine to me like this too!

If you want to make some, I think they are pretty self explanatory! Use twine and wrap attaching with hot glue! I used a little twig from the yard for the stems.

I made little leaf tags: extend grace and they are happily perched on the shelf in my living room. Total cost: free!

This made me laugh happy. I seriously have a light bulb! One my hubby cleaned out then gave me like eight months ago, that I had no ideas what to do with. These are soooo cute. Now I need another light bulb. I actually ran across the random light bulb yesterday and thought, I still do not know what to do with this. I just love it. Grace extended to you as well Monica. Eternal grace, Angelia in Tx

I will never look at a burned out light bulb in the same way again! These are adorable. I have not had much opportunity to explore Pinterest; I kinda get lost amongst the screens. But it seems to be a treasure chest of ideas. Maybe you could do a future post of how you utilize Pinterest...

So creative..and I do have some burned out lightbulbs, too. I did see one article that shows you how to turn them into tiny flower vases or terrariums. Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)
