Y’all, I feel a little late to the Dollar Tree cookie sheet party!! Now that I’m here though, I’m ALL IN!!! No-one will ever guess that these Christmas lights started off as a Dollar Tree item!! I’m so excited because the are just SO many possibilities with these sheets!
Here’s the star of the show!! Not much that catches the eye now, but just wait!! Oh, and there’s two in a pack so even better!!

Once I decide on a shape to use I’ll need a template. This Christmas light cookie cutter will work perfectly!! If you’re like me you probably have tons of cookie cutter so don’t forget about them!! They are perfect to trace around!!
This next part is easy peasy!! Just trace around the cookie cutter onto the foil sheet and cut out. Just be careful of any sharp edges. If you need a cookie cutter you can find them here!
I’m using a hole punch to make the hole in the top.
Now I’m ready to paint! I’m using some non-traditional Christmas colors, but they are so bright and cheery!! Think “The Grinch That Stole Christmas” style!!
Add black stripes to the base of the bulb with black paint.
Let’s rust it up!!
Once the bulbs are painted I’ll be giving them a rusted effect using cinnamon. This step could be skipped if you prefer.
Brush the area you would like to appear rusted with Mod Podge and then press into cinnamon. I like to sprinkle cinnamon on a plate. Allow the Mod Podge/Cinnamon mixture to dry completely and then seal with a top coat of Mod Podge.
String the bulbs on a piece of wire to make a garland. I added a drop of hot glue to hold each bulb in place.
Just look at all that “rusty” goodness!!
How stinkin’ cute is this?!? Would you ever guess they came from a Dollar Tree cookie sheet??? I can’t wait to see what else I can make!! Let me know what you think friends!!
