    i use a porcelain socket attached to a cord inside an old coffee can. i put a hole in the side of the coffee can pushed the light fixture part through the outside and screwed a 100w CF bulb into the fixture from the inside. i cut a small hole (slightly bigger than a quarter) in the lid to the coffee can lid. and put the lid on the can. It works great!!! and very cheap to make.
