recycle old bulbs into cute decor

Don't throw out those burnt out Christmas bulbs! Recycle them by spraying with glue, then dipping in glitter. Put in a clear glass jar for a pretty decoration.

 That is really cute!  I wish we still had bulbs that are that shape because I really like this idea!

I've done these before.  I suggest a glossy spray sealer over the glitter.  Otherwise, the glitter tends to make a mess every time they are touched.

Never thought of that, thanks!

I think anytime glitter is involved some sort of sealant is necessary.
