I painted the second light bulb with Antique Gold Acrylic paint that I found in one of my craft buckets.  I just used a paint brush and swabbed it on.  Once that was dry, I hot glue gunned on some ribbon and then topped the whole thing with a flowery candle ring that my mother-in-law gave me a long time ago.  It looks like a bulb wearing a very feminine chapeau.

I tried hanging it in a couple of different spots to see if I could get a good shot of it.  I think that it would look prettier strung up with some gold or red ribbon instead of with a piece of copper wire.  Still, not a bad project considering I used only what I had on hand.
