We’ve put together a festive craft that will have the entire family getting creative to design original homemade Christmas light bulb ornaments. Display the ornaments around the house, hanging from the mantel or your tree, dangling on the stairway railing, or as part of the wreath on your front door. Best of all, you can find everything you need to make these at Dollar Tree for just $1 each!

Here’s What You’ll Need:

    • Light Bulbs
    • Glitter
    • Floral Wire
    • White Glue
    • Paper Plates
    • Paintbrushes
  • Paint, Sequins, Chenille Stems, Pom-Poms, and Other Embellishments

Easy Step-by-Step Directions:

    1. Cut two 6” – 8” pieces of floral wire and bend each one in half. Twist each piece tightly around the grooved base of a light bulb and twist them together to create a loop for hanging the ornaments.
    1. Use a paintbrush to cover the entire surface of the light bulb with a thin layer of white glue.
    1. Place a paper plate on the table. Hold the glue-covered light bulb over the paper plate and cover all the glue with glitter. Allow the glue and glitter to dry.
  1. Once the ornament is dry, use colorful paints and embellishments to create a variety of holiday characters. These ornaments make great gifts and stocking stuffers for family, friends, teachers, and colleagues.
