Create some bright and colourful paper Christmas lights to hang throughout the festive season!


You can download our Christmas light bulb template here if you don't want to draw your own. Either print and trace this template or colour straight onto the page!


You will need:

  • Micador Marathon Markers, Wallet 12
  • Micador jR. Drawing Paper, A3
  • Micador jR. Safe Scissors
  • String
  • Graphite pencil
  • Sticky tape




Step 1: Draw!

Using a graphite pencil, draw or trace some light bulbs onto your drawing paper. You can find a template for the bulbs that we used above. The more light bulbs you draw, the longer the garland will be!

Step 2: Colour!

Use your Marathon Markers to colour in the light bulbs. Use bright colours like yellow, orange, red, green and blue. Colour the base of the lightbulbs in black - this is where the string will attach at the back.

Step 3: Cut!

Follow the pencil outline and cut out each light bulb from the page.

Step 4: Hang!

Cut a length of string and begin attaching the light bulbs to it. Alternate the colours and use a piece of sticky tape on the back of each bulb to attach the string. Allow a bit of extra string on each end so you can tie or hang the garland.
