How to Make a White Light Bulb Colorful

I like changing our front light outside to match the season, so with Valentine's Day coming up I really wanted a pink light bulb. Well, Menards didn't have a pink one. I know, how awful.

So I grabbed a plain white one and colored it with a sharpie. Using one color seemed to boring so I ended up using two colors and made stripes of some sort (which are kinda hard to do on a twisty light bulb).

It looks great when it is turned on - perfectly pink! However the pictures don't show it well for some reason. For some reason you can't really see the color on the bulb but you can see the pink light it gives off. If you're curious what the light looks in real life just stop by and see it in person and you'll love it I promise!!
(Or make your own - you probably have the supplies already, right? Love these kind of simple projects.)
Pink light LOVE!


  1. That's such a good idea! I never would have thought about changing up light colors for the seasons/holidays.

  2. Great idea! I wonder what would happen if that was done with two opposite colors, like blue and orange. I totally want to try that.

    1. I wonder what would happen with blue and yellow.... would you get green as the emitting light? :-)

  3. Thanks for the simple but creative idea. Gotta try this!
