DIY~Recycle Christmas Bulbs Into Beautiful Ornaments!


Please click on the following YouTube link to see my full tutorial:


Turn your old Christmas bulbs into beautiful ornaments to hang on your tree! If you don't have any of these bulbs, you can usually find them in thrift stores or garage sales. You can also buy these bulbs at Walmart....and if you are lucky, for 50% off after Christmas! For now, I purchased a 4 pack of replacement bulbs at Walmart for .98 cents because I wanted to show you how to do this project. I will post a list of the materials needed below, however, you really do need to watch the video to see how I made the loop at the top of the bulb. Enjoy Ladies! 

Materials Needed:

*Christmas Bulbs (The Retro Kind)
*Tinsel Glitter (Or Chunky Glitter)
*Aleene's Fast Grab Tacky Glue
*2mm Wide Wire Ribbon or 1/8 Inch if you can't find the 2mm.
*Mod Podge Dimensional Magic
*Low Temp. Hot Glue Gun
*Waxed Paper To Lay Bulbs On To Dry

Crustless Apple Pie Recipe

Crustless Apple Pie
Peel, cut and core 5-6 large Granny Smith, Fuji or Gala apples. I have a great apple peeler that cuts and cores at the same time. Then mix in 2 teaspoons of Cinnamon, 2 teaspoons of lemon juice, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract and 2 rounded tablespoons of flour. Pour apples into a large 9 inch glass pie dish that has been lightly sprayed with cooking oil. 

Next, mix the following topping ingredients and pour on top of the apples. 
1/4 Cup Melted Butter 1/2 Cup Packed Brown Sugar 1/2 Cup Quick Oats 1/2 Cup Flour 1/8 Teaspoon Baking Soda 1/8 Teaspoon Baking Powder
