One of the best things about Christmas is spending time with your family, but another part of that is the baking and decorating and crafts that the Christmas season brings with it. Each year, Emma and I gather our craft supplies and make DIY Christmas ornaments, cookies and more. There’s just something about making homemade gifts and things that really brings Christmas home each year. These DIY Christmas Tree Light bulb ornaments are super easy to make and they look great hanging on the tree!
This craft is extremely kid friendly, but you are working with glass light bulbs so be sure to keep an eye on them. Otherwise, the kids will love putting these together and decorating them! My Emma loves creating different ornament patterns for her tree!
DIY Christmas Tree Light Bulb Ornament
This craft uses empty light bulbs meant for crafts. If you can’t find them, you can easily get them at Michael’s or Hobby Lobby. You can also get them on Amazon HERE in bulk. I like to buy them in bulk because it gives me enough to make a lot of different designs. Other than that cost, the rest of the items you will need are all really budget friendly! You can work these up for a little over$2.50 each ornament total! That makes a FANTASTIC gift because they’re so cheap!
You Will Need:
- Empty glass light bulb ornaments
- Green Pom-Pom balls
- Yellow sparkly Pom-poms
- Red Puffy Paint
- White Puffy Paint
- White yarn
- Small juice glass or small paper cup
Using a pair of tweezers, stuff a few green cotton balls into your light bulb. Once your bulb is full, top it off with one of the yellow pom-poms so that it resembles the star on top of your tree.
Tie a 4″ piece of yarn onto the metal loop on top of the ornament and screw the cap back on. Once it’s on, set the ornament in the juice glass to hold it upright.
Using the red puffy paint, paint garland on your light bulb using the half circle pattern you see on mine.
Now, use the white puffy paint to add dots for ornaments. Let your ornament dry and hang by the yarn!
