- Come up with a design or pattern for the light bulb. It can be as simple as a series of lines, or as elaborate a pattern as you want.
- Draw the pattern freehand on the light bulbs using permanent marker.
- Let dry. Attach the light bulbs to their respective sockets. You now have creative-looking light bulbs!
Real Tip: To make your light bulb cast shadows on the wall and ceiling, draw your design using acrylic paint, which is more opaque than a marker.
