DIY Outdoor Frozen Light Bulbs

Growing up, we never had a certain time to put up the Christmas decorations. Basically whenever my mom decided to or my dad felt like dragging it from the attic.


Mom always wanted us to help, it had to be a family thing, but then everything had to be her way and we all tapered off until only she was left. With that and the cold, we never decorated outside. As I have said before, I have no clue where to start. My lawn was great for Halloween but pretty boring for Christmas. I thought a colorful DIY might liven it up, and of course, all the snow melted. I will update this with another picture when we get some more snow. Anyway, on to the craft, here's what you need:


Balloons
Food Coloring
Water
Knife
Optional: Dark rope

This one is pretty simple, like most of my DIY's. I'm sure I could still mess it up, and if I could, someone else could as well, so always double check the instructions.



Start off with a balloon and food coloring. Put a few drops into the balloon. It doesn't matter what color you decide, or what color the balloons are.


Then put the balloon on the tap and slowly fill it up with water. Too quickly and your balloons may burst, pop off, or spring a leak. They can be as small or as big as you want them to be and multiple sizes, or the same for the lightbulb effect.


Tie the bag up well and then shake it up. You want the food coloring to spread obviously. From there, toss them into the freezer and wait.


When frozen, simply take them out, and slit the ballons and slip the insides out. From here, take them outside and either use them alone by tossing them around in the fresh snow, lining your sidewalk or porch, or frozen outdoor lights with rope as string.



Simple right? They also look pretty cool as well. What about you, do you go all out for the holidays or are you the other extreme and do nothing? I'm always fascinated by why as well, let me know below! Thank you so much for reading everyone, Happy Holidays and Thank you so much for being YOU!
