Quick garland made with mercury glass bulbs


My daughter gave me these mercury glass bulbs and I thought they were too pretty to get lost in the tree so I strung them on a piece of silver ribbon and made a garland out of them. This only takes a few minutes and you could do the same thing with almost any tree ornaments.


  • ribbon or cord
  • ornaments


Slide a bulb on and tie a knot to hold it in place. Slide on the next bulb and tie another knot. Repeat this process until all the bulbs are tied on.  Tie a loop at each end for hanging.

About Elaine Kazinec

I have never met anyone who can't make wonderful things for their homes, friends, and family, only those who think they can't. The purpose of this blog is to show everyone how really simple most projects for the home are to make. When my husband and I bought our first home we were short on cash so I learned to be long on creativity. I have been told that I can make something wonderful out of nothing and that is true. You can too! Some of my favorite things are items that I found in someone's junk pile. I am going to show you how easy it really is. I hope you find the courage to jump in and attempt some of these projects. You will be amazed at how talented you really are.
