"Cover a light bulb with a doily and spray paint it. The light will shine the pattern onto the walls." I don't know how I feel about flammable spray paint on a hot lightbulb. Maybe spray paint them silver and use them as non-light decoration?
DIY: Lace Light Bulbs - Spray paint a doily onto a light bulb or use a silver pen and draw your own designs. When the light shines through, it will cast a beautiful pattern on your walls. You could use any color spray paint
Lighting made from repurposed glassware: use this link for inspiration. CAUTION if you DIY this project, please make sure your lamp is sturdy and in a spot where if it falls, it won't shatter and harm children or animals.
Better than wine bottle lights, Rach? The lady at Costco said that stores are going to stop selling those kinds of light bulbs.and just go to onl selling the coil light bulbs.grrrrr I guess the old light bulbs use more energy.
