Light of my life

As I have told you before, Pinterest has become my second addiction after blogging. It is such a great way to see all kinds of creative ideas, from so many talented people out there on the net. When I came upon this cute idea, I just had to make one. My sweet husband, who IS the light of my life, is ever indulgent in helping me make my craft projects and ideas come true. He helped me, carefully, remove the guts to a lightbulb so that I could make this. There are tons of tutorials out there on how to do it, we used this youtube video. My hubby also drilled a one inch hole in my block so that my lightbulb could sit down in it, as if it was screwed in, rather than setting on top as they did in the Pinterest one. I think it makes it more stable also. If you've seen the one on Pinterest it is on a plain wooden block, but I thought covering the block in some cute Valentine's paper added so much!!!
Supplies used: wood block - Michaels; patterned paper from With Love by Pebbles; light bulb - Home Depot; red wire - JoAnn's; font - BoaScript.
