Christmas & Light

Light is such an important part of Christmas. There is something very welcoming about tiny lights sparkling in the night. No home is ready for Christmas without lights strung up on a tree, as well as windows and railings. 

Here are some interesting ways in which you can use strings lights to usher in more holiday cheer.

Lights in a vase!

Fill a glass bowl, tall cylindrical vase or hurricane vase with a string of lights. This would be great as a table centerpiece or on a bar or buffet cabinet.

Cupcake fairy lights!

(I'm not sure about this one. Think its from BHG)

Use colorful cupcake liners to make little lampshades for string lights. Gold or silver colored cupcake liners would give a more sophisticated look. This is a great party decoration idea as well and can be used for different themes like Halloween, Valentine's day, New Years Eve.

Lights in a Bottle!

This was an amazing idea I came across that I can’t wait to try out.  They would look great on a mantel or a windowsill. For complete instructions on how to create the wine bottle lamp take a look at
Wit & Whistle.
