DIY GLITTER BULBS
What you’ll need:
– Christmas Bulbs
– Mod Podge®
– Foam Applicator Brush
– Glitter (or Mica Flakes work well too.)
1. Coat bulbs with Mod Podge® using the foam applicator.
2. Sprinkle generously with glitter to coat.
– Use a paper to collect excess glitter so you can return to the container.
– Mod Podge® dries clear.
Mica flakes, found on many vintage styled ornaments, create a fun and beautiful texture on old Christmas bulbs, as pictured below.
Tie a ribbon around the bulb threads to turn these decorative bulbs into baubles for the Christmas tree!
