Recycled Light Bulb Carrot Ornaments

Maybe it’s because my Bacon Asian Orange Chicken Pizza is a semifinalist recipe in the Pillsbury 1 Million dollar Bake-Off contest, or maybe it’s because carrots always remind me of Spring, either way I have orange crafts on the brain. This “orange” craft is also green, recycling old burned out light bulbs into ornaments. 
Materials Used:
Old Bent Tip Light Bulbs
Orange Yarn
Green Yarn
Green Floral Wire
Hot Glue
Green Permanent Marker
Orange Permanent Marker
Using scissors or wire cutters, cut floral wire in half. Wrap it around the base of your light bulb, forming a loop for hanging. With hot glue, attach orange yarn, wrapping tightly around bulb as you go. At the base of bulb, wrap green yarn tightly around base and floral wire. Hot glue ends of yarn down. Tie a bow around top of bulb with more green yarn. If any hot glue shows up white, color it in with your permanent markers.
Well that’s what I have been making. What have you been up to?

Anything Goes Linky #91 And A Creative Princess Review

I am posting the party a bit early this week because I am so ready for the weekend.  I want to give a special shout out to a sweet peep by the name of Terri. You probably already know how wonderful Terri is, and how crafty she is with  her blog A Creative Princess. I personally have been having a hard few weeks. Work has been, lets say challenging. My little Lucas has been dealing with bronchitis for months now, and is on yet another prescription. Then on top of it, he came down with a case of the stink eye, a.k.a. Pink Eye. Lucky for me, Lucas and I shared a pillow last night! As I type, I am telling myself my eye doesn’t itch or feel like it’s growing cheese. Did I mention I have a sinus infection? My husband actually slept on the couch last night since he said I sound like a harmonica when I sleep. By the way, it’s so much fun putting eye drops in a toddlers eyes, 4 times a day! Thank goodness I have no other responsibilities on my plate for the next week…cough…sarcasm.  OK so I am whining, and deep down I know I am fortunate and blessed.  Speaking of blessings, let’s get back to Terri. Terri has been a real friend, and always willing to lend an ear when I have been feeling like I am losing my mind. She recently sent me the cutest washer bunny necklace.  She even has them available for purchase here at A Creative Princess Etsy Shop.  The necklace was packaged so nicely. This lady sure knows how to make someone feel special and loved. Which is why I highly recommend her blog and shop. Thank you Terri for the sweet early Easter gift, and most importantly for being such a great friend.

Right after I had finished typing this post, I received some heart breaking news.  Today I am accepting prayers for my family.  My Grandpa Fred Eyre passed away Tuesday night.  May God be with my Grandma, Dad, cousins, and the rest of the Eyre clan.

It's been a long week, filled with emotions, to make matters worse, my little Lucas and I are both sick.  Your lovely links from last week did help to cheer me up.  I had a harder time then normal narrowing down  my favorites for features.  I hope these all inspire you too!  Thanks for linking up.  Hope to see you again on Friday for another fabulous linky party.
