    Found some cool projects, but was looking for a way to make it like those inside a light bulb.

    Good luck with it. You will need to make some pretty good seals and getting the vacuum very low will take some ingenuity. The smaller that your vacuum vessel is, the lower vacuum you will achieve so don't use a large jar.
