- First things first – download and print out the TWO free printables listed above. You will want the candy printable printed on white, while the ornament shape should be printed on colored paper.
- Go ahead and decorate the candy designs however you like with crayons, markers or coloring pencils.
- When done, trim them out and set them aside.
- Next cut out the Christmas bulb shape.
- Cut off a sliver, from the bottom of the ornament, so it lays flatly like a house.
- Now grab your pipe cleaner and the stapler.
- Twist and staple the pipe cleaner to the top of the bulb paper piece, just like a hanger on a real ornament.
- Now for the fun part! Decorate the Christmas bulb shape however you like.
- Use the peppermint candy pieces for the roof, while you cut out small circular windows, a rectangle chimney and a door for our ornament light bulb shaped house.
- Using the marker, give each piece some dimension, by drawing on lines for the windows, bricks on the chimney and a knob for the door.
- Glue down all your newly made small paper pieces to the craft foam ornament shape, in their designated spots.
- Finally, to finish off the Christmas Light Bulb Fairy House project, take some small holiday stickers and stick them in random places to set the scene.
- Then allow it to dry completely before you display it proudly!
