Mickey’s Shorts Holiday Ornament by Guest Blogger Sherry DeHart

unnamedMy plain, solid red Christmas bulbs were starting to look worn, after using the same ones for at least 10 years. I didn’t want to throw them out, and I like to “re-purpose” things.  So I pulled out the bulbs, my tub of buttons, a black sharpie marker and the hot glue.

1. I used a piece of paper to draw a straight black line around the bulb, just above the center.

2. I colored in the top half with the black sharpie, (it worked better than regular markers).

3. Then I just hot glued 2 white buttons on the red part like Mickey’s pants.

Ta-da….brand new, re-purposed, Mickey inspired bulbs for my tree.

This year, I am going to attempt something similar but I will add a pink bow to the top of a white bulb. I will use a pink sharpie to draw polka dots for a Minnie inspired bulb.
