You only need a few tools to make a beautiful light bulb vase for a bamboo shoot or other flower. You will need a light bulb, a set of pliers, a carpet tack or small nail and heavy gauge of wire that bends easily, but maintains its shape once bent. You may want to use goggles and/or gloves for protection. You will create the stand separately from the vase itself.
*This vase works best with a bamboo shoot because bamboo is small and bamboo also grows very slowly. You can use plants besides bamboo in the light bulb vase, but you will need to make sure they are small and won't get big too quickly. This light bulb would make a nice bud vase, but only for smaller, lighter flowers like daisies. A rosebud likely would not look good in this light bulb vase.
