Light Bulb Toys

There are always some non-working bulbs in the house. And if you purposefully collect them throughout the year, then enough of them will accumulate in order to create a whole set of Christmas tree decorations. All non-working light bulbs of any size can easily be given a “second life”.

There are several options for how exactly to process the lamps so that they turn into New Year’s toys. You can use these ideas:

  • Apply decoupage technique. This is one of the easiest ways to decorate, all you need is to take a prepared napkin and stick it on the lamp. It must first be painted over well, you can use ordinary paints. You can buy options for blanks for performing the decoupage technique at stationery stores or in those where handicraft kits are sold..

  • With the help of any paints – gouache, watercolors, and others, you can draw pictures. To fix them, it is necessary to varnish the finished drawing on top, if there is no special one, then even hairspray is suitable. When choosing a decor, you need to include imagination. Small drawings look original, for example, you can draw snowflakes, Christmas trees, etc. And you can make any figurine out of the light bulb itself, for example, depict a snowman or a penguin out of it.

  • If there are ribbons, beads, multi-colored threads, then you can use them as materials for decoration. To do this, paint over the lamp with glue and carefully lay out the pattern on top. It is advisable to fix the beads or beads on top with varnish.

Updated decoration of old balls

Many families keep old glass balls that were used by grandparents. Moreover, they are all about the same, because before it was not possible to choose among the number of options, they were all produced in batches at factories, and no one thought about manual work..

You don’t have to throw them away, you can use them as a basis for creative design. Each housewife has a box with buttons. As a rule, they are all in the singular, so it is unlikely that it will be possible to use them purposefully. But such a variety will look great on Christmas tree decorations..

It is better to place buttons in a chaotic manner, for this it is better to glue the larger ones first, and then place the small ones in free places. It will look beautiful if beads or sequins are glued in the middle of each of them, or at least a few.

Sequin options look great

You can also refine old Christmas tree decorations by simply adding sparkles. As a rule, most of them are monochromatic, there may be patterns in the form of streaks, snowflakes, Christmas tree branches. Any of them can be made attractive by simply making them shiny. To do this, they need to be greased with glue in those places where glitter will be poured and sprinkled abundantly, and then opened with varnish..

Edible toys

From the available products, you can make original Christmas tree decorations. At the same time, you can be sure that not a single guest will be indifferent to such a decor, many will come up, not believing their eyes, to examine them closer.

Edible toys, as a rule, do not hang on the tree for long.

Here are just a few ideas for how food can turn into masterpieces:

  • Citrus. Orange, lemon, grapefruit will do. All you need to do is cut out a circle, preferably using the middle of the fruit, where it will be the largest, string it on a string and hang it up. Of course, such a “toy” will soon wither, so this should be done before the guests arrive..

  • Dried fruits. You can use any available to you, it can be dates, dried apricots, prunes, dried figs, etc. It is best to string them on a wire, one by one, and then fasten it to form a bead shape. Such a Christmas tree “toy” will retain its appearance longer than citrus fruits.

Delicious food for the New Year

  • Candies. This is the easiest way to decorate your holiday tree with food. It is best to use chocolates, which have a bright, colorful wrapper. They are strung on a thread by the “tail” and hung on the branches. Bars like snickers, tweaks and others also look original..

  • Cinnamon sticks. In addition to originality, such decor will be a source of fragrance that will last for a long time. You need to take several sticks (pieces 5-7), tie them with a tourniquet or thick thread of a bright color, and then hang them on a branch.

  • Pasta. With the help of curly pasta, you can make various figures. For example, bow-shaped varieties can be strung on a wire and made such beads. And pasta in the form of wheels can be glued together by repeating the shape of a snowflake. In supermarkets, you can find colorful products that will also look original..

Filling for transparent balls

In stores, you can find transparent Christmas balls – a kind of pacifiers that are designed to be filled with different materials. As a rule, they are silicone, so this is easy to do. You can use these ideas:

  • Sand with shells. Of course, at first glance, New Year’s holidays have nothing to do with memories of rest in the warm season. But for those who know how to fantasize and “combine the incompatible” this is not a problem. The only caveat is that it is not so easy to buy shells, and such souvenirs will not be cheap, so you need to take care of the preparation of materials in advance, already from the summer

  • Assorted candy. The neck in transparent silicone balls is usually not big enough to fit regular candy. But various dragees, nuts in chocolate and other small sweets will fit there just right. The combination of such candies of different colors looks especially beautiful..

  • Sequins. It is best to use sequins, sequins, pebbles and other little things, diluting them with something, for example, beads or buttons. Otherwise, it will take a lot of sparkles to fill the ball. You can also fill it with regular beads of different sizes..

  • Christmas needles. As a rule, finding a small twig on New Year’s Eve is not difficult, so you can remove the needles from it and place it in a ball. You can complement such a composition with other small accessories, for example, sparkles..

Live plants

To some, the idea of ​​decorating a living tree with other plants may seem absurd, but in fact such compositions look very original. And if you prefer an artificial Christmas tree, then its decor with live plants will generally be very appropriate..

Flowers as an addition

Flowers as an addition

For example, you can paste over a transparent or any solid-colored ball with small fresh flowers. You need to use only those plants that will not wither after five minutes, you can take chrysanthemum buds. Such work is very painstaking, it requires perseverance, and even time, because you cannot make such a decor in advance so that it does not wither before the guests arrive. However, the originality of the idea justifies all the efforts expended..

Cones and acorns in the New Year are not superfluous

Also, cones and acorns can serve as an alternative to Christmas tree decorations. They need to be beautifully decorated: acorns can be strung on a wire to make beads, and cones can be decorated with bows or sprinkled with sparkles, and sprinkled with hairspray on top.

Bows and Keys

These New Year’s “toys” are, perhaps, the easiest to manufacture. You can make bows from any ribbons. It is not necessary to buy them on purpose, you can cut any unnecessary things, making strips of the same size. Bows are formed from them, which cling to the branches either with the help of threads or with the help of double-sided tape.

As for the keys, if you search, you will find unnecessary keys in the house. To give them a festive look, you can simply tie them with ribbons and hang them on the branches. Such decoration has a symbolic meaning, which the owner of the house can pay attention to when making toasts. For example, such keys can mean that the doors of this house are always open for guests, or that shaped doors are open for good luck and success in the coming year..

There will not be many such small ornaments as bows and keys. Since these decors are small, they can be used a lot. By the way, some, especially daring dreamers, make a big bow from a ribbon and place it instead of the usual star, but this can only be done by those who are not afraid to break traditions.

Disc toys

You can come up with a lot of Christmas tree decorations from CDs. One of the options is sticking a family photo on the disc. You can make a frame around the edges, for this you can cut the sock, take its upper part and fasten it around the photo with a thread. Such decor will be not just a Christmas tree decoration, but also an excellent symbol of family values, because they are often associated with the New Year..

You can make a work of art from discs, but this option is mainly suitable for those who can draw. With the help of the palette of paints, you can paint directly on the disk. From above, such creativity is varnished, and it is very simple to attach it to a branch – you just need to thread a thread through the hole that is in the middle.

You can also cut the discs into small pieces. To do this, it is best to use sturdy scissors to create shards of different sizes. Then, using glue, they are attached to a transparent silicone ball, which is empty on the inside. You can try glueing them onto solid colored toys, such as red ones. The result is an original mosaic that will shimmer beautifully in festive lighting..

Options for needlewomen

If you are doing needlework, then it is a sin not to use your skills while decorating a Christmas tree. Those who know how to embroider with a cross can embroider designs with a festive theme, and it is not necessary to spend a lot of time working with the whole canvas. You can embroider miniature figures: angels, a herringbone, a star, a snowman.

Patterns for their embroidery can be found on the Internet, and experienced needlewomen can easily find them on their own. It is best to do this on a snow-white canvas, and then just cut out the resulting drawing and attach it to a branch, making a small hook from thread or fishing line.

There are also many beaded patterns for New Year’s decorations. Snowflakes from this material, which are performed in white and blue colors, look beautiful. Despite the fact that such decorations are usually smaller than other Christmas tree decorations, they still look beautiful and stand out from the general background..
