“Bringing the past into the present to cherish in the future.”
At one point glass insulators served as target practice for the poor hunter who missed his prey. Today we find the glass insulators in antiques and vintage stores. They are still many uses for them other than target practice. Here are some ideas that I have borrowed (stolen) on the internet.
From the Eclectic Barn:
Tea Lite Holders
The second tea lite holder is made with a old spring from a mattress
Glass Insulators Pendant Lights
Can’t remember where I took this one. It could be a little harder to drill a hole in the glass. Found it! http://sfgreenlabs.blogspot.ca/2009/01/vintage-glass-insulator-pendants.html
