Glittered Bulbs

I stumbled across this picture on Pinterest from 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.
