Large "Flame" lightbulbs?

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!!

Flower petals?
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?

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.
