Well, here I go again with the colored glitter. Lots of it.
This time around I used up some old style light bulbs that we had kicking around in the garage and gave them a completely new look.
Add some twine and a little charm and the result is a pretty, repurposed Christmas ornament.
As you can see, I did them in a variety of brilliant colors.
The process for these is fairly straightforward and you don’t need a ton of supplies either.
To make one of these pretties, first dig up an old style light bulb, either one that burnt out or one you don’t plan on using.
I used a sponge brush to apply a thin layer of Mod Podge over the entire surface of the bulb.
While it was still wet, I held it over a plain piece of paper and shook glitter over the whole thing. It takes a LOT of glitter to cover one of these. After a minute or so, shake off the excess onto the paper, then funnel it back into the glitter container. I allowed my bulb to completely dry on a piece of paper towel while I glittered others.
To finish, cut maybe 12″ of twine or jute, tie a loop in the middle (to hang ornament), and wrap around the top of the bulb. Hot glue a thin layer as you go. As I did this, I placed a charm so it kind of hung down the front a little.
I had bought a pack of charms that look like old keys, but you could use whatever.
Overall a semi-quick and simple little project. Very easy to make a bunch at a time as well, which you know I love!
Not sure which one is my favorite yet, but I think they turned out kind of adorable.
