Top 20 DIY Projects of All Time: #6 Valentine Lightbulb

by Grace Bonney

Last week we celebrated whimsical DIY projects, and this week we’re celebrating another creative project that uses everyday materials to create something fun and “just because.” This Valentine Lightbulb was the work of our former DIY editor, Kate Pruitt. Kate used red wire, a lightbulb, and a simple wooden block to create a custom gift for your valentine (or anyone special in your life) that truly feels special and unexpected. Even though Valentine’s Day has passed this year, you can definitely make these any time of the year when you want to send a special message. Happy DIY-ing! xo, Grace
