LIGHT BULB SANTA
Submitted by: , WebMom at FamilyCorner.com Magazine.
This ornament is a classic and can be designed in your own special
style. In our creation, you'll find that you only need a small handful
of supplies to create this whimsical Santa!
What You Need:
- burnt out light bulb
- acrylic paint in white, red, flesh, black, and pink
- gold cord or ribbon
- hot glue
- black marker
What You Do:
Paint an oval for Santa's face with flesh acrylic paint in the center of
the round part of the light bulb. Paint entire remaining round portion
of light bulb with white acrylic paint. Paint neck of bulb red, and top
(socket) of "hat" white. Allow to dry completely.
Using black acrylic paint, dot on two eyes. Using black marker, draw on
smile. Dip clean paint brush into pink acrylic paint, dab off excess
paint onto newspaper or paper towel. Gently blotch on pink cheeks.
Touch up Santa's beard and hat brim with more white paint. Hot glue a
loop of gold cord or ribbon to the back of the bulb. Craft glue is not
recommended as it does not adhere as well as hot glue does. Hang!
