Glittery Christmas Light Ornaments

I love the projects I’m seeing from crafters who glitter old retro Christmas light bulbs and use them as ornaments. What I don’t love is the idea of going out in search of said retro Christmas light bulbs. But a Smoothfoam egg is just the right shape to get the look without the flea market search. My project features the mini-eggs, but you could use the larger eggs as well. Now go dig out your Easter decorations and get to work!

Supplies:

Smoothfoam eggs
Glitter
Craft glue, hot glue gun
1/4″ washers from the hardware store
String or ribbon for hangers

Instructions:

1.  Paint each egg with a thick coat of craft glue. It helps to put the egg on a toothpick during this step.

2.  Sprinkle glitter over the entire surface of the glued egg and set aside to dry.

3.  Hot glue a washer onto the wider end of the egg, in the center.

4.  Hot glue a string or ribbon in the hole of the washer for hanging.
