Twine Pear

Don't you love it when you can check something off of your Pinterest list of things to make?  Of course you do.  Well, this twine pear was on my mine.

I love how it starts with a dead light bulb - recycle, upcycle, whatever you want to call it.  I've been staring at all the incandescent bulbs in our house, just waiting for one of them to burn out.  Now?  How 'bout now?  Finally.

I grabbed some twine and the glue gun and got to work.


I found the original photo at Here In the Waiting Place.  There weren't any instructions, but really it was just a wrap and glue sort of thing.  Or should I say wrap, glue, and burn finger sort of thing?!  I guess I haven't used the glue gun in awhile.  :)


The stem is just a piece of twig that was also glued on (minus the finger-burning that time - woohoo).  Here is where it ended up:


What is the most recent craft you were able to knock off of your Pinterest list?

HOW cleaver! No one would think that is a dead bulb...
I have some sewing projects on my list, better find time for them!

I love it! I did the toilet-paper-rolls-as-seed-starters, that's my proud upcycle. ;)

What a great idea!! I would love a bunch of these. I would never guess it was made out of a light-bulb.Up-cycling ROCKS!! My pinterest list is so long I can't even think of the last thing I did off it.

That turned out great! I wouldn't have thought to use light bulbs that way...can't even think if we use bulbs like that in our house, but if we did I'd totally try it out!

How cute is that?! I've got to tell Greg to quit buying those squirrely spiral energy efficient light bulbs he alway gets!

Cute! I did a craft from pinterest with my kids today actually- but it was a bit of a fail. I will be blogging about it on Wednesday

That is seriously fabulous. Awesome. Meanwhile, I'm still waiting to see your fingerpainting!
