Turn Lightbulbs and Twine Into These Rustic Pears

Turn Lightbulbs and Twine Into These Rustic Pears | DIY Joy Projects and Crafts Ideas

This is a really clever DIY project for recycling! I was excited that you could do something so simple to give your home a great looking rustic touch. I’m always asking myself “who thinks these great things up?”


We’ve had to replace a bunch of burnt out lightbulbs recently, and I hated the thought of throwing them away, so I decided to reuse them instead.

It’s amazing what you can do with lightbulbs when they burn out. I recycled these lightbulbs by adding some twine and made cute little twine wrapped pears; perfect home decor!

I think it’s pretty cool that by simply wrapping a light bulb in twine could look so much like pears. I made some of these and put them in a weathered wooden bowl on my coffee table and love the way they look in my home with farmhouse decor.

Now that we’ve switched to those energy saving/flourescent bulbs, I had been saving up some old burned out bulbs for some clever DIY project that I knew would come along.  Call me a “pack rat”, but it paid off! I may have to go buy more old bulbs so I can make a few more of these.

Watch how this gal makes these in her easy step by step tutorial so you can get started making some home decor accents for your home!
