Tired of the same old Christmas ornaments? Try out Clinton Kelly’s light bulb snowmen and cupcake ornaments.

What You’ll Need

  • Light Bulbs
  • Spray Adhesive
  • Glitter
  • Paint or Nail Polish
  • String
  • Glue Gun
  • Twigs

Directions

  1. 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.
  2. Add glitter. Clinton said a fine glitter works best. Cover the entire thing.
  3. Let dry.
  4. Once dry, paint the socket black. You can use nail polish or paint.
  5. Add a piece of black string to hang the ornament.
  6. About an inch below the socket, paint an orange triangle for the nose.
  7. Make black dots to make eyes over the carrot nose.
  8. Make black dots to make charcoal buttons.
  9. 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.
