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
Burnt out light bulb
small piece of sandpaper
white, flesh or beige, and red acrylic paints
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.
