The rest of the hosts were his elves today as he began to show them how to turn an everyday lightbulb into a great Christmas tree ornament.
What You’ll Need
- Light Bulbs
- Spray Adhesive
- Paint or Nail Polish
- Glue Gun
- First, take a lightbulb. Clinton said the more opaque the lightbulb, the better. You can even use a lightbulb that’s burned out. Take the adhesive and apply it to the entire surface of the lightbulb. Make sure to use light busts.
- Add glitter. Clinton said a fine glitter works best. Cover the entire thing.
- Let dry.
- Once dry, paint the socket black. You can use nail polish or paint.
- Add a piece of black string to hang the ornament.
- About an inch below the socket, paint an orange triangle for the nose.
- Make black dots to make eyes over the carrot nose.
- Make black dots to make charcoal buttons.
- Use the hot glue guns to put a dot of glue on the branch and hold it onto the snowman’s side to make an arm. Repeat on the other side.

What You’ll Need
- Ball Ornament
- Red Beads
- Cupcake Wrapper
- Start with a ball ornament. Make sure it’s opaque.
- Add glue around the middle of the ornament and the top half of the ornament.
- Take some glitter. Clinton said you can use chunky glitter. Add generously to the top of the ornament.
- Take the cupcake wrapper and hot glue a dollop on the bottom of the inside of the wrapper.
- Put the ornament in the wrapper on a jaunty angle.
- Put a dollop of hot glue on the bead
- Glue bead to the top of the ornament. This bead serves as the “cherry” on top of the cupcake ornament.
