Twelve Ornaments for Christmas Day 1...

Light Bulb Rudolph

I am really jazzed to bring you my 12 ornaments for Christmas series you will be amazed at the ease and simplicity of the projects I have planned. Many of them have been great sellers for me at previous craft fairs and always a hit when given as gifts. Some are also great projects to work on with your children and grandchildren and give instant results, that is a great goal to have when crafting with children they like to handle the end result and see what they have created.

List of supplies
Outdoor Replacement Bulbs (any color)
Google Eyes
4mm red pom poms
Chenille stems
adhesive of choice (e6000, Crystal Effects, hot glue)

First thing you do is to take your stems and wind them around a pencil, one stem per ornament.
Wrap the stem once around the connection end of the bulb and twist in the back a few times to secure.
Take your ribbon and adhere it to the back of the chenille stem to create a hanger.
Make a bow out of the same ribbon and adhere it to the front of the replacement bulb.
Place on the google eyes and the pom pom with a small amount of adhesive.
Your ornament is finished now all you need to do is hang it on your tree or package as I have done to give as a small gift.
