Don't Throw Away Old Light Bulbs{Turn Them Into Christmas Ornaments} !

by Ana illausky
Use spray paint to cover bulbs, dry .Add embellishments like trim,lace,and sparkle items for a holiday look.Hot glue a loop piece at the neck of bulb from right to left forming a loop.
These are the two theme colors that I choose.I spray painted one, the other natural bulb color.
This one I made to look like a Santa suit.All done with spray paint,electrical tape,trim and ribbon all for just pennies.
This one, very simple look of Hello Kitty.I used acrylic paint for the face{ just the outline, then trim to finish off.
You can make as gifts or party favors at a Holiday party for your family.
display them through out your home for the holidays, also keeping green from throwing away!

    I've got lots of bulbs saved up to do this. Thanks for ideas.If I don't get around to doing it myself (highly likely as Ive had them a while now lol) ..I'll ask the local Brownies or School if they want them. I'm sure the kids would enjoy making ornaments for Xmas time.
