DIY Light Bulb Wreath and Tree

I tried to come up with some ideas for Christmas decorations last year that used lightbulbs because we had a ton of burnt out bulbs that I didn't want to throw away and was to lazy to recycle. The method of making the light bulb trees and wreath are the same, we just used different kinds of light bulbs.

What you will need:

  • Cardboard
  • Old light bulbs
  • Glue that can be used with glass
  • Old ribbon

Cut out a cardboard circle template.

 Lay out the light bulbs in a circle using the template as a guide for accuracy.

Drip glue where light bulbs meet. I used more glue on the bottom tiers to make sure the tree and wreath were stable. Keep building new layers, using less light bulbs each time.
