Christmas decorations with ordinary light bulb

Christmas Decorations

This year I decided to make homemade Christmas decorations. While decorating the Christmas tree make sure you make yourself some ornaments to hang and tell your friends and family you made them yourself.

Who doesn’t love a good bout of recycling? It’s good for the environment, it allows you to use and express your creativity, and it can result in some cheap yet fabulous ornaments and decorations. Don’t throw away your burnt out light bulbs, turn them into Christmas decorations to bring the Christmas spirit to your home. Although they will no longer give off light, they’ll light up your home in an entirely new way.

Here is another great DIY and craft project for you and your family to take on which turns an ordinary light bulb into a homemade Christmas decorations. Check out the DIY Christmas Ornaments Made of Light Bulbs tutorial today!

With a bit of craft paint and some fabric scraps, you can make the cutest light bulb ornaments to hang from the tree or even just sit atop your mantelpiece. We love the look of the evil Grinch before he came around, because not everything has to be super cutesy all the time.
