DIY: Lace Light Bulbs


Spray paint a doily onto a light bulb or use a silver pen and draw your own designs. When the light shines through, it will cast a beautiful pattern on your walls.

  2. Nope...not when dry. But I would suggest using a high temperature spray-paint such as:

  3. i'm confused if you layed a doily over a light bulb and then spray painted it, wouldn't it look opposite of the above picture

  4. Yes you are correct -- this DIY is merely a suggestion for painting light blubs. You can draw your own design with high temperature paints or use stencils and spray to achieve a similar pattern. Check the link to the picture above if you want the exact patterned light bulb.

    Thanks for the comment!

  10. I guess I can use some MacTac, or any adhesive paper, to create the stencil, spray paint and the remove the adhesive paper!

  12. Hi,
    How do you make the lightbulbs work though if they are hanging? would this is in place of an overhead light in a room?

  13. I like this idea! I’d love to try this on our deck. I want to change our old lighting there. Does it also work on any types of light bulbs, like LED? Anyway, thank you for this idea. ->Allison Shallenberger
