I'm dreaming of a GREEN Christmas!
One where we find unique and clever ways to re-purpose our Christmas trash!
That way we might have a few more WHITE ones in our future!

What happens to all those dud Christmas lights, the silly sad ones that don't work? Well they get tossed right? Wrong, they get RELOVED!



Here is my Fancy Christmas light brooch which gives those dud bulbs one more chance to sparkle!



This is a One Of A Kind Brooch... no seriously I used up all the dud lights I could find!



Made from old Christmas light bulbs, sequins, beads and lots of Love!

If I can't be my own, I'd feel better dead.

It would also make a really nice decoration for the tree or somewhere else. Very festive!

That is fantastic!  Now I know how to recycle all those pretty little bulbs I have.  Thanks for posting.
