DIY: Pearl Ornament

Pearl Bulb Ornament

Check out my new jeweled ornament HERE...


You need:
Inexpensive bulbs from the dollar store
Many many pearls and other crystal beads if you desire
(I used pearls from a couple of broken necklaces that I had. Use about 70 pearls to cover one bulb.)
Hot glue gun
Tulle to string through the top



Step 1: Start from the top of the bulb and glue pearls of various sizes onto the bulb. Work your way down.


Step 2: String a bit of tulle through the top of the ornament and tie it in a bow. Hang on the tree.

  4. @ Laura - I actually used pearls from some old broken necklaces and bracelets that I had. I also got a lot of the beige colored pearls from Micheal's Craft. Hope this helps! :)
