In 2005 I used small glass bulbs to make the ornament that year. I have always regretted that decision...I wonder how many were broken. I know I broke one...but I had an extra...I always have a couple extras of every ornament we make. ( The bulbs came in packages of four or five they were small lights used in candelabras)
This is a clear decorative glass bulb painted red...many coats of red. A wire is attached to the base of the bulb and then a face painted and then lots and lots of snow. It is cute...but breakable.
I bought this glass creation about the same time...it isn't exactly a tree ornament but it could have been. This one has a copper wire soldered to the underside bulb so it can be added to an arrangement or put in a house plant. A smaller copper wire with tiny beads is attached with a bit of glue to the base of the bulb to be wings and antennae. I bought it at a small antique/craft shop in Walker Minnesota.
This pretty bulb is in the tin Chickadee container in the window.
Not sure where I got the container...probably from the local dime store....and the fru fru sparkly stuff probably the same place.
