Twine Wrapped {Carrot} Light Bulbs

Twine Wrapped {Carrot} Light Bulbs

I saw a collection of home made carrots
while surfing the net at Carolyn's Homework
Here's Carolyn's carrots made with yarn - aren't they cute?

I knew I had just the right thing in my
trash stash to make some with...

candelabra light bulbs were used for this project
I have to admit I had a hard time deciding if
I wanted to paint them or not. I love my
Twine Pears in the natural color.
So I snapped a pic for those of you whose
decor is in the more neutral tones so that
should you decide to make some for yourself,
you can see them both natural and painted.

I picked up this guy little guy last year at WalMart in the gardening department. I love how he has his arms crossed over his tummy, like he's simply giddy over finding some goodies to nibble on ;-)

Here they are hanging from my peg rack.

Y'all have fun making some of these cuties,
and have a Happy Saturday!

    1. Thanks for your sweet compliment ;-) I had preferred to use yarn but since I don't knit or crochet much at all, I just don't keep that around the house... twine is another subject - I love that stuff ;-)

    1. Hi Karen, thank you for stopping by... you will like making them - just be patient while the glue dries - I used regular white glue... some folks use the hot glue gun but you have to wrap and hold the twine tightly, and hot glue and fingers don't mix with me ;-)

  26. What a cute way to re-use some dead light bulbs.
    I like them both ways. The orange ones in the bowl of green paper are sweet. :)
