I thought these homemade light bulb Christmas ornament patterns were cute enough to warrant an article. I never thought about using light bulbs for creating any type of craft.
I find it amazing what people can create out of everyday household items. These people must have a creative side that is bar none.
These light bulb ornaments are made from the standard light bulbs not the new energy saving bulbs. But, I bet someone will come up with a craft for the energy saving bulbs. I know the light bulb companies have came out with energy saving light bulbs that look similar to the ones everyone has used in the past.
I wouldn’t use ones that are new to make these ornaments if you can keep from it since you can’t use them in light sockets. I don’t think I would use them even if I could screw the decorated Christmas light bulbs because of the chances of them starting a fire or something like that.
You could hang them on your Christmas tree as a way to decorate it. You could also hang them in a long piece of twin across a room as a way to decorate it for Christmas. There are quite a few options you have to use the homemade light bulb Christmas ornaments.
If you have a fireplace, you could use them to decorate the mantle by hanging them across the front or paint some canning jar rings and sit the decorated light bulbs on them across the top of the mantle. You could use this same method as a way to decorate your tables around the home.
One other thing you can do with the homemade light bulb Christmas ornaments is use the rings like above and create a circle around a table centerpiece for your dining room table. This would create a unique centerpiece idea for Christmas.
You can be very creative with using these free homemade light bulb Christmas ornament patterns for decorating your home. There are endless possibilities for these Christmas ornaments.
