How to Make a Snowman Lightbulb Ornament


A snowman lightbulb ornament is a unique decoration that can be hung on your Christmas tree, a wreath, or in garland around your home. These cute little crafts made from old lightbulbs are fragile, but make great ornaments.

Things You'll Need

  • Old lightbulb
  • White craft paint
  • Black craft paint
  • 3 small black buttons
  • Craft glue
  • Thin strip of red or green fabric
  • 2 small twigs
  • Orange craft foam
  • 2 wiggly craft eyes
  • Paintbrush
  • Scissors
  • Ribbon or string
  • Paint the entire surface of an old lightbulb with white craft paint. Let the paint dry.

  • Turn the lightbulb upside down and glue two wiggly craft eyes to the front of the lightbulb in the thinner part of the bulb.

  • Cut a small carrot shape out of orange craft foam, and glue it to the lightbulb under the two eyes as a nose.

  • Use black craft paint to make a smiley face mouth underneath the orange nose.

  • Glue two small twigs to the sides of the lightbulb as arms. Be careful when you press them into the glue so that you do not shatter the lightbulb.

  • Attach three small black buttons with glue in a line to the front of the lightbulb, as buttons for the snowman.

  • Wrap a thin strip of red or green material around the neck of the lightbulb snowman ornament, and tie it in a knot at the front of the lightbulb to secure it.

  • Glue a piece of ribbon or string to the very top of the snowman's head to hang it up with.

Tips & Warnings

  • Make a small red hat for the top of your snowman's head to add decoration to your snowman and to cover up the tip of the lightbulb.
  • Use caution when working with a lightbulb so that you do not shatter it and cut yourself.
