or you can use
Ever wonder what to do with a burnt out light bulb? Why not transform them into Holiday treats. In Orna-deMentia 2014: Rise of the Burn-Outs, I will show you how to transform your discarded incandescents into bizarre little goodies for the seasonal tree. This will be done using the processes of collage, painting, and assemblage. Videos available starting Oct. 17th 2014…just in time for the Holidays!
