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.
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.
