World's Simplest Funnel Lights

I would have preferred old crusty funnels if I could have found them, but these are the size I needed. They are 8-quart size and have a 1.25-inch spout opening — large enough for the plug to go through but small enough to stay on the socket. I removed the little strainers in the bottom and slipped the plug end of the cord through. I used reflector bulbs (the ones I got have CFLs inside). I tied a knot to get the drop I wanted. That's it! If I don't paint them I may try to age the galvanized finish. Does anyone know a quick way to do that?
