Step 1: 

  • Using a dry erase marker, draw desired pattern. Don't be afraid to erase and re-draw in this step! Erase any lines you don't want or need so you don't get confused moving forward.
  • Carefully go over your lines with the gold metallic paint marker.

Step 2:

  • Where your gold lines cross in the top row, hot glue a smaller white button. Add larger buttons to the bottom row.
  • Paint tacky glue over the buttons with a small paint brush.
  • Top with gold glitter.
  • Hot glue adhesive pearl in the center of each.

Step 3:

  • Thread clear stretch cord through a larger white button and hot glue to top of bulb.
  • Wrap the edge of the button in jute and hot glue the end in place.

Step 4:

  • Wrap the bottom of the light bulb in jute and secure with hot glue.

Step 5:

  • Hot glue larger clear gems to accent the pearls and glitter. Add more color and details with the smaller colored gems. Take a permanent marker to any clear gems to get your perfect color!
