It is sort of like brass baby booties; when our walls are all embedded with LEDs and lighting is part of the fabric of our house, we will be able to answer the question "grandpa, what's a lightbulb?" If we have made these lovely concrete lightbulb wall hooks.

It looks relatively easy, although whamodyne's instructions suggest a 3-1/2 inch long lag bolt set two inches into the bulb; that is barely out of the neck of the bulb. I wouldn't put too much weight on the ball part of it. ::Instructables via ::Apartment Therapy
