FrankenShine Ornaments-From RePurposed Light Bulbs

FrankenShine Ornaments from green C7 or C9 light bulbs... oh yea, I do crack myself up folks:@) But seriously... Just expanding on my Jack-O-Lantern Ornaments idea and think this one's a cutie! All that's really required is a black Sharpie to draw on facial features but, I think a little extra embellishment is always fun!
Frankie is adorable but all that "shine" made pictures difficult...
Pin It

Draw some jagged hair with a Sharpie up to the metal.  
See that little hole in the metal? I'm going to stick an ornament hook in there for hanging.

Add googly eyes and a pom-pom nose with glue. I used a hot glue gun and think different sized eyes help make him look silly. 

Draw on a crooked mouth and don't forget the stitches on his forehead... 
My bolts were made by bending a pipe cleaner then hot gluing it to the sides of his head. 
This is a cute, quick craft folks! 
And if you have easy access to your string of last year's Christmas lights... 
Those old bulbs should probably be replaced anyway:@)
