DIY Light Bulb Ornaments

From now on, don’t throw away your burnt light bulbs. You can recycle them into beautiful Christmas tree ornaments!

I was so delighted when I saw these at “Craft By Amanda” where Amanda posted the first Angel ornament made out of a burnt light bulb. She made them in Dec 2000 and they still look brand new although they have been put on, taken off and put on a total of 9 times.

P/s: You can use a good light bulb if you don’t have a burnt one…. shhhh…. don’t tell my husband that I am going to get them from the lamps and told him that they are burnt!!!!
