Great idea to recycle light bulbs into Christmas decorations. Will have to give that a go.

I would love to make these ornaments but i can't find Glass-tiques anywhere. Is there a product comparable to it.

You can use old lightbulbs to recycle them. White coated or clear bulbs - they both look great! Use hot glue to secure a hanger at the top.

Add sparkle by embedding a small crystal into each tear drop!
