Making homemade Christmas ornaments is fun and can help you to decorate the tree for less. If you love to be creative and you wonder what in the world you are going to do with all of those old burned out light bulbs, there is a great tutorial on making Christmas ornaments.
You just have to paint whatever you want on the bulbs and then hang them on the tree. Paint a penguin, Santa or anything at all. If you use watercolors, you can wash the bulbs off when Christmas is over and redo them next year or if you want to keep your design forever, use acrylic paints. This is a great project for kids and it lets you be as creative as you want, while recycling those old bulbs. Just remember to keep them when they burn out and really decorate your tree the DIY way this holiday season.
