DIY Vintage Christmas Light Garland

DIY Vintage Christmas Light Garland - Kortni Jeane

This Christmas season we wanted to create some holiday decorations to put around the Kortni Jeane office. What's more festive than a Vintage Christmas Light Garland?{With a splash of pink, of course}.

This is a simple and relatively cheap craft. It doesn't take too much talent to put together BUT does add a lot to the space you are decorating! 

Items you will need:

Gold Wire Tinsel // similar here 

Clear vintage light bulbs (not on a string) // similar here

High gloss paint (4-5 colors) // similar here

Hot glue gun

Paint brushes

Ruler (or something to measure with)


The first step is to paint each light bulb your desired colors. Paint 2-3 coats of paint, making sure to let bulbs dry completely (30-45 minutes) in-between painting.

{Colors from left to right, then top to bottom: Crimson, Ocean, Bubblegum, Pool, White}

We created a place for the bulbs to dry from the box they came in, but you can also do the same thing by punching holes in an old cardboard box. 

Next, get out the gold tinsel wire and make sure your hot glue gun is hot! 

Begin gluing each bulb onto the wire, mix-matching the colors in whatever order you want. This is the best time to get out a ruler to make sure the bulbs are the same distance apart so they are spaced out evenly along the wire.

...and voilà! Your Vintage Christmas Light Garland is finished and ready to be hung!
