I inherited a liking for lights from my mom. She is especially fond of string lights, which can end up looking either really elegant (below)
or just plain tacky (below).
I bought 3 strings of battery operated, mini LED lights for a different project but because it never panned out, I was left with these guys...
I figured there was something I could do with them. I basically walked around the house putting the lights in random places (plants, vases, centerpieces, top of cabinets, etc.) to determine if it looked good or tacky. Then I placed in my silver urn ...
and it worked perfectly.
Because it isn't a clear vase, it hides the wires wonderfully, and because it is battery operated, there are no cords!
It creates a soft glow and adds warmth to my living room, all for a mere $5.00 :)
Other ways you could utilize these versatile little things...
*Decorate a mantel
*Hide in plants
*Wrap around a wreath
*Use as wall art
*Illuminate under cabinets
*Place in vases
*Hide inside garland
*Hang behind a picture
