My room is a work in progress at the moment. I decided this afternoon that I needed something blue in the back left corner of my room. My walls are a mess right now so please try to imagine them a lovely shade of light blue.


Although the reflections of the other light bulbs looks cool, I wish it hadn't done that. This is more what the colors are actually like. They're filled with water with food coloring.


From the side.

It's hard to tell in the pictures, but the middle one is a lighter color than the bottom one. Also you can't actually see the fishing line at all. They look like they are just floating in mid-air. It's pretty cool, at least I think so.

that's really great! How did yu open up the bulbs without busting them? Are they heavy with water inside them?

Hollowing out light bulbs is super easy! There's a great tutorial on how to do it here. The only thing I didn't do was the putting it in flames.
They're obviously heavier than empty light bulbs, but they really aren't that heavy.

Those look so rad!

But how exactly did you hang them without them opening/falling/breaking? It boggles the mind!  Wink
