I have 5 or 6 old light bulbs that are just sitting in my DIY drawer, waiting to be used. You all know how I got hooked up on Christmas decorations and stuff, so I felt like the right way to use them have got to be as something Christmas-y. This one was naturally white and pretty much “destined” to go from a light bulb to a snowman. I made some more of the woolen hats (in case you’ve missed the post with What-s & How-To-s, you can find it here), which accidentally worked with the snowman. The hat was a total fit! “Like a glove”, but like a hat, you know!? Since it’s a grey hat, I figured Snowman the Grey is a nice name for this little guy here.
– an old light bulb;
– acrylic paint + palette;
– cotton swabs;
– woolen hat;
– glue gun.
Use the cotton swabs to “draw” the face of the Snowman. When the paint is all dried, tie a string around the bulb, so that once your snowman’s all done, you can hang it on the tree. Glue the woolen hat on the gray part of the bulb that would normally go in the lamp. I don’t think that this last part needed to be explained… Press the hat and hold it like that for a few minutes to make sure it’s glued firmly. And, hang.
I think that it’s completely safe to say that this is yet another fairly simple DIY project. You can make this for your tree and/or you can surprise your loved ones with a nice, personalized, yet budget-friendly Christmas gift.
