Well, moving on... I came by this idea through pinner @Emily Kent and I fell in love with it. I just wish I have known it before my wedding, so I could use it to decorate the outdoors. I guess as it rained cats & dogs it wouldn't have made much difference anyway.
The tutorial is very self-explanatory, but let me know if you need any help with it!

NOTE: So I tried today (3rd Oct) to open a glass bulb and I realised I was wrong when I said this tutorial looked really straight forward. It's not. The first lesson is that this is a really messy process and you will need lots of newspaper covering your work surface, as there will be lots of tiny glass dust everywhere.
I followed this other tutorial just to get to the point of removing the inside of the bulb. What they don't mention however, is that a lot of pressure will be required to break your way through. You will also need to be extra careful: first not to hurt yourself and second not to damage your bulb. Good luck!
