Recycled Light Bulb Carrot Ornaments

 
Maybe it's because my Bacon Asian Orange Chicken Pizza is a semifinalist recipe in the Pillsbury 1 Million dollar Bake-Off contest, or maybe it's because carrots always remind me of Spring, either way I have orange crafts on the brain. This "orange" craft is also green, recycling old burned out light bulbs into ornaments. 
 
Materials Used:
 
Old Bent Tip Light Bulbs
Orange Yarn
Green Yarn
Green Floral Wire
Hot Glue
Green Permanent Marker
Orange Permanent Marker
 
Directions:
 
Using scissors or wire cutters, cut floral wire in half. Wrap it around the base of your light bulb, forming a loop for hanging. With hot glue, attach orange yarn, wrapping tightly around bulb as you go. At the base of bulb, wrap green yarn tightly around base and floral wire. Hot glue ends of yarn down. Tie a bow around top of bulb with more green yarn. If any hot glue shows up white, color it in with your permanent markers.
 
Well that's what I have been making. What have you been up to? Please come share at our Anything Goes weekly linky party.  If you have not cast your vote yet in the Pillsbury Bake-Off please do so now. My Bacon Asian Orange Chicken Pizza would love your vote. Voting ends for the Doable Dinners category on 3/28/13.
