It has been a busy few weeks with holidays, birthdays, holiday shopping, decorating, and making things. But I’m glad to be back in the swing of things. I spent the last week and a half working on brand-new outside holiday decor. I used my jig saw, some paint, and lights to create this awesome decoration for my front yard.
But now that that’s done, I want to share with you this pretty holiday decoration I made for INSIDE my house. I found this cute light bulb in Bullseye’s playground at Target. It was only $5.
For this project, I wanted an “all over” etch. Since the bulb is an odd shape, I didn’t think that the Etchall Etching cream would be my best option. So for this project, I used the Etchall Dip n Etch. This product is so easy to use, and just like the etching cream, it is reusable. Once the etch was done, I just poured it back into the bottle to use again later.
There was just enough dip n etch in my stash that I could fill half the bulb. Once the bulb with filled I set the bulb with the opening upward into a wide-mouth coffee cup. I let it sit like that for 15 minutes. When the time was up, I screwed the top on the bulb, flipped it over, and let it sit for another 15 minutes.
After the etching was complete, I poured the dip n etch back into the bottle and put it away to use on a different project. Once the bulb is empty, rinse it out with water. Once dried, fill the bulb with fairy lights (I used battery-powered ones) and screw on the top. You will have to open it to turn it off and on but I don’t mind. I also added a Merry and Bright decal that I cut on my Juliet out of adhesive vinyl.
