These are vintage lightbulbs. I bought them in 3-packs mostly for the packaging so I could use them for dioramas. But now I have these bulbs. I’m not sure what to do with them. I’m trying to think of ornaments or something but I got nothin.
Any ideas? I have twelve not including 3 I’m keeping in-box since I feel like I should keep one in original condition.
They look like flaming hair.
Make a cool sun
Those are really cool.
they look like they fit the old fashioned tree light strings. Either use them to light the tree, or make a tree topper or wall hanging that looks like a sun, or an orange furry animal that lights up.
I suppose you could combine them with paper towel cores or pool noodles to make “candles”.
I have used these in electric candles.
@magpie and @steiconi I like the idea of a sun!!
Fairy or bug bodies?
Wind chime or chandelier dangles?
Hang in the kitchen to look like chili peppers?
Abstract sculpture components?
Pillar-like elements across the back edge of a decorative box?
They remind me of little flame head characters!
Calicifer from Howls Moving Castle?!
They also remind me of this guy from Inside Out:
Oohh I might use them for assemblage pieces.
A flame bulb would make a cool centerpiece in a shrine. Maybe add some sort of flame halo around it. Here are some inspiration photos from Pinterest.
replace the body with the bulbs…
