Twine Pears {DIY Craft}

Making Twine Pears is a DIY craft made from light bulbs that is easy, cheap and perfect for Fall.  It’s the perfect way to upcycle burnt out old light bulbs, but you can always go out and buy bulbs, too.  I bought a pack of 4 bulbs for $1 and used about $2.00 worth of twine, so my four Twine Pears cost less than $1.00 each, and look less than an hour to make.  HUGE Score.

Supplies Needed to Make Twine Pears:

Twine Pears

  • Light Bulbs

  • Hot Glue Gun/Hot Glue Sticks

Directions for Making Twine Pears:

Twine Pear

Step 1:  Hot glue a piece of cinnamon stick to the to end of the light bulb.  It’s important to do this so that you can wrap the twine around the stick.

Step 2-5:  Start wrapping your twine around the light bulb by hot glueing a dot of glue at the top of the bulb near the cinnamon stick, and then start wrapping the twine around the stick.  You’ll continue to wrap the twine around the bulb stopping at intervals to add glue all the way to the bottom.  It’s really easy going most of the way.  The last little bit gets tricky though because the twine wants to pull to the center of the bulb and you have to work harder to get it to stay next to the line of twine without gaps.  Once you reach the end, snip the twine and that’s it!

Step 6:  Display in your home.  Aren’t they lovely?
