A long while back on Pinterest I saw what I thought was a most clever idea to recycle old light bulbs. They took some twine and made them into pears. That idea has been floating in my head ever since, and since it is finally fall, I decided now would be a good time to give this easy craft a shot. Not sure if this is the original source, but it seemed to be the oldest I could find.
1. Take an old light bulb and glue a piece of a stick to the top.
2. Beginning at the bottom I fastened the yarn to the light bulb with a dab of hot glue. Then wind the yarn around the light bulb, adding glue dabs every couple of turns. Be careful not to burn yourself! Once I got to the top, I wound my way back down to the bottom again, because the yarn I used was zigzagged and it left some empty white spaces. Glue the yarn down at the end.
3. Stand back and giggle at your cute little pear! I love the way it looks like a fuzzy sweater. I am planning on making a few apples, and maybe some more pears in different shades.
Thanks for stopping by!
