Lights are an integral part of holiday decorating, that much is true. But beyond the classic lights on the tree, lights on the house, lights on the.... stairway (?) what else is there to do?
For those of you who still have to sort out your last minute holiday decorations (like me, let's be honest) I thought I'd show you a super quick DIY project that will add a little whimsy to your holiday light displays (and let's face it, you're gonna want to leave this up all year).
This project was so easy, and the best part was, the only cost was the $2 strand of lights from Walmart's holiday section!
To start, arrange your stones in a circle of whatever size you'd like your base to be. If for some reason, you feel like you're going to want to move this display, or if you're not building it exactly where you're leaving it, I would suggest constructing it on a piece of plywood for easy handling.
Arrange your lights how you like them within the circle before adding the sticks, as it's way too difficult to do it afterwards (learn from my mistakes, loves).
Next, prop up your sticks in a "teepee" shape like you would a real fire pit. I chose to use a bit of hot glue at the top to secure them in this position so that they would be as stable as possible. And also because I had a hard time convincing my kitty to just stop and admire the beauty of it, instead of crashing wildly through the middle of it in a mad frenzy. Funny, that.
How are you spicing up your holiday lights?
