glittery Christmas bulbs

Last year I bought a few plastic glittery Christmas bulbs in an after Christmas sale (the white ones in the picture above).  This year I wanted a few more in red and green.

So I bought these replacement bulbs at Walmart (my go-to craft store), painted them with mod podge and sprinkled them with ultra-fine glitter. 

When they were dry, I put them into a glass apothecary jar.

I love how sparkly they are!!

They look so pretty with our glass jars of ornaments!
