Reuse old vintage bulbs to recreate glitter bulbs

Glitter vintage Christmas bulbs

For this DIY project, use old burned out Christmas light bulbs and cover in glitter before putting them on display in a glass vase.

What You Will Need:

  • Vintage light bulbs
  • Craft glitter
  • Glue (Elmer's glue)
  • Paint brush
  • Paper plate
  • Wax paper

The first step is to paint the light bulb with a thin coat of glue. Then sprinkle the glitter all over the bulb, making sure the entire bulb is fully covered.

You'll want to hold the bulb for a couple minutes to let it dry before placing it on a sheet of wax paper to finish drying. Repeat the steps for the number of bulbs you wish make. When you have finished making all of the glitter bulbs, let them dry for a few hours before putting them in your vase or bowl for display.
