I stumbled across this picture on Pinterest from themoodyfashionista.blogspot.com and loved the idea. Glittered bulbs!
A while back I was looking through one of my regular thrift stores and there were bags of bulbs for two bucks. I didn't buy them originally, so I headed there so see what was available. Unfortunately, the bags were gone, but I did purchase these bulbs. And can I just mention how hard it is to find these kinds of bulbs? Everything, everywhere is LED. I think my entire purchase was $3.50. Score!!
I also have a collection of glitter.
I simply used a paintbrush to paint on some Modge Podge glue and sprinkled the glitter on the bulb. For better coverage, I tried to match the color of the bulb to the color of the glitter. In the end, this is what I was left with.
