How to Make a Christmas Bulb Garland

Today we are going to learn how to make a Christmas bulb garland.

This is definitely one of those projects that requires minimum effort but produces maximum results.

This is a great last-minute project with no preparation work to do.

[Except maybe finding the bulbs on sale after last year’s Christmas. ;)]

Supplies Needed:

80 LED mini string lights on a battery pack—she bought one that has different lighting modes.

batteries for the lights; they are usually not included in these packs

Christmas bulbs with the removable loop: She said she used 3 packs of 35 (which is 105) bulbs for her project.

No tools are needed at all!

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1: Stretch out the string of LED lights.

Step 2: Attach the bulbs to the light string. Remove the loops and replace them over the string lights.

You see how easy this is?

Get a tween or teenager to help you with all those bulbs.

They will be surprised by how fantastic this turns out to be.

And they will be proud of it.

You can alternate different colored and different-textured bulbs to give it variety.

Another variation is different-colored LED lights.

There are some where you can set a certain color for all the lights.

Another is that each light is a different color.

All would be very pretty.

Depending on how many bulbs you have and the number of lights, you will determine how many you put between each light.

You can always put more lights in between bulbs if you are running out of them.

According to her, she wrapped the extra light back under the garland.

Also, all of this depends on how long you want your garland to be.

In the video, she put hers on a long table and still had to curve it in several places to get it to fit.

Anything with bright, shiny, glittery bulbs and lighting creates an awesome holiday atmosphere.

Merry Christmas!
