A "Bright" Idea!

Yes it was a light bulb,...and now it's an ornament. I love a crafty re-purpose, especially when it uses something that would otherwise be discarded. I just decoupaged tissue paper onto this little light bulb and finished it off with some ribbon. Imagine the possibilities!

Holly, this is what I truly call "creative"! It is not possible to see that it used to be a bulb, what a wonderful idea! You should definitely open a little shop, you would have such a success, I tell you.
I love it.;)

As soon as I saw this ornament on your sis's blog I knew how you made it - I have been looking for another application of the paper mache maracas and penguins I made in elementary school! When we did that it was heavier than decoupage beause it was paper mache and we tapped the finished product to make the glass break inside. You weren't going for that but Christmas ornaments are made of glass all the time so this makes sense!

I LOVE to decoupage with tissue paper because it forms so well to the object. This idea is genius, like your sister said. : ) She was right. I honestly thought this was a paper mache pear.

That is the COOOLEST idea...I love it when something is recycled and repurposed...and if if comes out looking like a pear (love them) even better. cherry
