Trash to Treasure: Repurposed Light Fixtures to Christmas Bells
Wanting to decorate our front porch for Christmas and continue to use “trash” to do so wasn’t difficult at all. I saw some forgotten light fixtures in the garage, and didn’t see fixtures, I saw bells! Here’s what I saw on some shelves in our garage…
My mission, “should I choose to accept it”, was to detach the cones from the base.
Now, to remove the bulbs and all the electric wires.
Next, all that was needed was to add a coat of paint (that I already had) and add some pieces of decorations I found in my Christmas box.
I attached the decorations with wire since they were going outside and I didn’t think glue would hold well enough. I still have more decorations I’m working on, but for now, the finished bells are up on one of our porch posts near my Upcycle Wire Fencing for Outdoor Christmas Lights and my Repurposed Wheelbarrow Address Sign.
Do you know my total costs for this holiday trash to treasure project?
Cost of paint – zero
Cost of decorations – zero
Cost of metal cones – zero
Price of project – priceless!
