21 Light Bulb Recycling Ideas

The typical lifespan of a regular incandescent light bulb is 1,200 hours, which is equivalent to 50 days. Given that the light bulbs in your home aren't being used 24/7, this means that you will have to replace them every couple of months, depending on the usage. Unless they have been damaged, light bulbs can not only provide you with light throughout their lifespan, but they can also be the basis of some amazing DIY home ideas once they're used up. Here are some functional, decorative and fun uses for your used light bulbs, which can also be turned into some entertaining craft activities!
