Love is in the air! Opps.. my bad it should be love is in the bulb! Yes, that’s correct. We are going to do this Valentine Lightbulb for our next project.

I can hear you say “Jessie ..I’m not electrician forget it.” I’m sorry folks but you will definitely be amazed as to how cool and easy this DIY project would be! Also -it does not use electricity so no need to be scared of being electrocuted. Put your crafting skills to the test! See that wire “thingy” inside the incandescent bulb? You can actually think of other symbols or maybe short names of your loved ones to serve as the light emitter. Again you have to be crafty get those wire cutters, long nose pliers and pin to get this done. You may want to start in the mid area so that there will be enough spaces on the ends of the pin for connecting it to the bulb base.

Giving this to your loved one while you are having a romantic dinner sounds awesome -its like saying, “You [your special someone here] light up my life, and my whole world. Lovely craft, and did I say it you can just derive it from used materials? No need for you to shop any expensive gift whatsoever -this project and the thoughts that came with it? I say its worth a thousand times than those gifts you just bought from some place else. Enjoy!
