First Lightbulb Snowman

I've been wanting to make a light bulb snowman ever since I saw them on Pinterest. 

Of course I wanted to make mine "Shabby Chic"...but aren't these darling?

So I pulled out my sewing machine, made a toboggan and then started painting a burned out light bulb instead of throwing it away.  I think it's a little goofy to go buy new ones.

I wrapped a trash bag tie around it and hung to dry on my kitchen cabinet knob.

I am by no means an expert at painting faces...but I think it turned out kinda cute!

I found the perfect little spot too!

So grab those burnt out light bulbs, some paint and fabric and go to town!


  1. The expression that you captured on this sweet little thing is absolutely wonderful! I'll be sure to save all of my burned-out bulbs for you and maybe I'll get a blue one in return. ;)

  2. I haven't seen these on Pinterest, but then again, I don't go on often. I could easily kill 2 hours on there, piece of cake! I have to say, yours are so pretty! I know, I know, you were probably going for cute, but I'm sorry, I know pretty when I see pretty, lol!

  3. HELLO? Cuteness overload. Darling. Just like all you do!!!

  4. Melanie,
    This little shabby snowman is adorable. OMG!!!! You paint like a dream. The face is just beautiful. Love this whole idea. Very cute. Great job.

  5. Your lightbulb snowman is just adorable--and the face couldn't be more perfect. Your painting skills are getting really good!

  6. Oh I found in love of your little snowman with a pink hat ! No words (english words of course) in French there are so many : trop mignon, adorable, craquant, si joli...
