Crafting with Kids - Nightlight Glitter Bulb Ornaments

Here is my version of the night light bulb ornament inspired by this pin from Justine at Sew Country Chick. I thought it was simply adorable how she took nightlight bulbs, covered them in glitter and turned them into Christmas tree ornaments. Inspired by her idea, and the fact that I had just burned out two Scentsy bulbs, my three year old daughter and I set out to replicate her project.

Her tutorial is pretty straight forward - bulb, mod podge mixed with glitter, and then more glitter - but here are a few logistical tips for crafting this project with small preschool age children. First off, use an empty egg carton to hold the bulb upright during both the glueing and drying stage.

Secondly, if your little artist has a heavy hand with the mod podge / glue application, be sure to wipe away any excess at the base of the bulb so your bulb doesn't become glued to your egg carton. (Hindsight is 20/20 :-)

Merry Christmas!

  1. Those came out so cute. I love the hint of the egg carton, or else i am sure you will end up with glittered kids!
