You can use light bulbs in so many ways. Read some tips and then enjoy your “new” Christmas ornament!
Just by rubbing the light bulb with rubbing alcohol the paint will adhere much better once you start to paint the snowman. After you painted the bulb with white paint let it dry completely. You can apply up to 2 coats. You don’t have to paint the light bulb socket. Meanwhile the light bulb is drying you can cut the ribbing from the sock. From the sock you will make the hat of the snowman. Take one toothpick and insert it in the muff. Using an glue gun attache the muff on the belly of the little snowman. Make the hands and the nose of the snowman using the toothpicks. Using pieces of felt make a small scarf for our little friend. Take the ribbon and tie it into a loop to craft the snowman hanger. Glue the buttons to make the snowman buttons. Make the last finishing touch: use black marker to make the eyes.
