I put 3 layers of paper mache on my light bulb first. Although this is optional, I highly recommend it because this helps make the light bulb less fragile. (You can find out
how to paper mache here.)
Paint the light bulb with the snowpaint. You don't need to paint the neck (the part that goes into the light socket). Let the paint dry completely. I set the neck of the lightbulb into an empty film container. This worked great while the paint dried!
Tie a piece of thin ribbon, about 10 - 12 inches long, securely around the neck of the light bulb. Add a few drops of glue to secure the ribbon. This will be the hanger for your ornament.
Now you will make a stocking cap for your light bulb snowman. Cut off the top of the sock, you will want about 6 inches to work with. Slide it over the neck of the light bulb; and make sure the ribbon comes out through the top. Roll the edge of the sock that is over the light bulb until you have only about 1 inch hanging over the top.
Tie a piece of ribbon around the top edge of the sock just above the end of the light bulb. Tie it into a bow and trim off any long ends. Secure the rolled edge of the sock onto the light bulb with a few drops of glue.
Now you can make the snowman's face! Glue on small buttons for the eyes (you can also use large wiggle eyes). Cut half of a bump off the orange chenille stem and glue it on to be the snowman's nose. For the mouth, cut out small circles (to look like coal) out of black felt or paper and glue them on.
