Old, or New Toys = New Lamp! Get a lamp, get some toys (or whatever items you want), get your hot-glue gun, and start gluing items onto the lamp! Spray paint the whole thing when finished and tada! New lamp!
Using pink, purple and other fun non-traditional colors just says, "Merry Christmas". I love these colors on a white tree background. A few strands of pink or purple mini lights would set off the bulbs nicely.
