The Terrarium inside a Lightbulb

A Great Idea for a terrarium! Put it inside a lightbulb. This is a wonderful little conversation piece and a great little project. You can do it any number of ways and you can use a wide variety of bulb sizes and shapes. You can mount the terrarium in a socket or put it on some kind of stand. This terrarium was made by a web visitor (Badia A.) Thanks Badia for the great project!

If you have a unique terrarium project make sure you send me pics. I would love to put them on my website.


A lightbulb TerrariumOn this page I have some instructions and a video that will show you how to safely clean out the inside of a lightbulb so you can do this project yourself.

In the video I show you how to wipe clean the frost from the inside of a lightbulb but I got a great tip from a web visitor "Ben" who gives us a very effective way to clean out the bulb. Here is how he does it:

"I always have a little trouble getting the inside of my bulbs as clean
as I want. I have learned that if I fill them 1/3 full with water and
then a tablespoon of salt, put my thumb over the hole, and shake the
heck out of it for 30 seconds, rinse with tap water and dry, it will be
as shiny as you ever dreamed. "




Can you do a project like this? You sure can! Here is a lightbulb terrarium made by Gary. And to find a plant all he did was go in the backyard and dig up an african violet! This shows good improvisation and my thanks go to Gary for sending in the pic!

I also have a nice project where I use the hollowed out lightbulb to make a castle diorama. It's a fun project and you can see how I use a cardboard ring to make a stand for it. You can use a cardboard ring like this to support your lightbulb terrarium.


The Necklace Terrarium!

Here is a fun little project submitted by a web visitor. It uses tiny little bottles for charms or apothecary. Fun little project and you can wear it as a necklace. Amazon sells all kinds of these little bottles. They are a lot of fun. This particular bottle comes with the cork and eye screw. Make a Necklace Terrarium
