This looks pretty easy. Use lace and spray paint.

That is very nice and different. I have been saving my old light bulbs to paint faces on them. Now I will have to try this. Thank you for sharing.

They are very pretty. I can see them also being painted red & green, or gold.

These are absolutely gorgeous! Craftyannie is right, you can totally paint them red, green and gold to use as X-mas ornaments.

I had looked at these many time and for some reason I did not think 'lace'!!
Some minds (mine) NEED help!

Think how pretty those would be with glitter! You can use a glitter paint or just sprinkle it on while the paint is wet. You could go one step further and paint them with Glo-in-the-dark paint so they'd 'light up' at night.

I have another cool idea. What about those small hanging vases or sitting I guess that I have seen made from light bulbs? I think they are cute.

maryim,

I don't have any clear bulbs either but you could still do it over the white ones. You could even paint the bulb another color before doing the lace.

I think this would work on jars and bowls also.

I have seen posts where the top of the bulb was removed and then can be washed out to make it clear. It looks easy but I haven't tried it.
