Making Paper Christmas Lightbulb Ornaments

Here is a Christmas Eve craft for my grandchildren to do while the adults are have appetizers and cocktails. Homemade Christmas ornaments for Nana's Christmas tree.


Total Time: No time at all. Fun & easy!

Yield: As many as you wish. :)

Source: My own idea for my 11 grandchildren!


  • red and green poster board
  • scissors and hole punch
  • ribbon
  • markers, crayons, glitter and/or other decorating supplies


  1. I bought double sided poster board. One side green, the other red. I drew out a shape of an old style light bulb we all used to use. I traced them out on the poster board and cut them out. The kids can decorate either one side or both. Punch a hole in the top and put a red curly ribbon through the hole. Draw a smiley face on it.
  2. Then I have the kids sit around my coffee table to decorate their ornaments, with markers, crayons, and glitter. Have them sign their names. I will date them and they will hang their ornament on my tree. It will always bring memories when I trim my tree each year.
