Last year, I shared two projects for making decorations with light bulbs. I had penguins and Grinches for Christmas and bunnies for Easter. I’d love to make ducks, but I’m still trying to figure out the logistics of that.
If I do, y’all will be the first to know.
Side note: I’m from Pittsburgh, I fully understand that my kind is supposed to say “yinz.” I just can’t, so you get “y’all.”
Light bulb bunnies are a ridiculously easy craft and (I have no way to verify this as I don’t have children of my own) fun for kids! Just keep an eye on them and make sure they don’t drop a poor light bulb bunny.
What I love about this project is that the materials are so easy to find.
- Old light bulbs (I don’t even bother to take the guts out, so no sharp pieces)
- Red, white, and black paint
- A Sharpie
- Card stock or heavy paper
- Cotton balls
- Brushes, toilet paper rolls (to prop up drying bulbs), and a plate for paint mixing
- Hot glue gun or other adhesive stuff
I’m guessing you have about 100% of these items in your house right now.

I’m off to boil some eggs for dying. Pro tip: save the water! Plants love the calcium that comes out of the shells!
