I used one of those old fashioned brooch settings that looks like a teeny-tiny colander for steaming veggies (teeny-tiny veggies that is). I just backed each bulb with a sequin (for added sparkle) and thread it through the holes. Once I ran out of light bulbs I filled the gaps with multi-colored glass beads.

So Glad everyone likes it!!

This turned out awesome. I've actually been dreaming up some things like this ... I  have strands and strands of Christmas lights that don't work, I feel like they should not just be thrown away. You did an amazing job.  Smiley

I'm not happy, I'm cheerful. There's a difference.
