Light Bulb Santa Ornaments
By Monica Resinger 

Here's a great way to recycle light bulbs! Make a bunch of them to hang on 
the tree or give as gifts. This also is a great craft to sit down and do with 
the kids. 


Burnt out light bulb 
small piece of sandpaper 
white, flesh or beige, and red acrylic paints 
small paintbrush 
snow textured paint 

1~Start with any size or shape burned out light bulb. Sand it lightly with 
sandpaper so the paint will adhere better. Paint the glass with a base coat of 
white acrylic paint. 

2~Holding the light bulb with the skinnier side up, paint a 1 - 1 1/2" circle 
in beige or flesh on the wider part of the bulb for Santa's face. 

3~Paint snow textured paint over the white paint. 

4~Paint facial features and rosy cheeks on the beige. Tip: The rosy cheeks 
can be done with lipstick. 

5~Paint the metal portion of the bulb red for Santa's hat. 

6~Finish off by glueing a cotton ball on the very top of the hat. Also glue 
some stretched cotton around the base of the hat. Hot glue a piece of red 
ribbon to hang by.
