Not sure what to do with your burned out Mood-Light bulb? (They’re too pretty to throw away right? :)) Here’s a step by step tutorial (using only three items you likely already have at home) to create a Mood-Light Ornament. Perfect for adorning your Christmas tree, landscape, outdoor deck, favorite houseplant. We’ve even seen folks hang them from their sail boats (big fans).
Ink pen (or something round and equivalent)
Household goop (or any glue equivalent)
Your burned out Mood-Light bulb
STEP 1: REPURPOSE ETHERNET CABLE
Using a box knife expose your Ethernet cable, inside you’ll find a rainbow of smaller wires (pretty!) and who doesn't have a bunch of those in a drawer somewhere!
STEP 2: CREATE BULB HANGER USING REPURPOSED RAINBOW WIRES
Using your favorite colored wires you removed from your repurposed Ethernet cable, cut them to approximately 12-18 inches using a wire cutter. Then simply wrap wires around your ink pen (or round equivalent) until you have a nice tight spiral like we did here:
STEP 3: MOUNT YOUR BULB HANGER
Next take your lovely colored spiral you made in step 2, and add a dab of glue to the top of your Mood-Light bulb, carefully slip the spiral over the end of the lightbulb, leaving a few inches exposed, as we’ve done here:
STEP 4: DISPLAY YOUR BEAUTIFUL REPURPOSED ART WORK
After you’ve allowed the glue to dry, happily hang your repurposed DIY Mood-light bulb ornament putting your artwork on display for others to enjoy.
Please share your new repurposed piece of art with us!
