Christmas lights are only for Christmas – says who? Actually, there is no one saying that people reserve such festive lights for the holidays. In fact, you can use it all year round. You just have to run set your imagination free, experiment with other items, and use these lights the way you want it.
If you do not want to have your Christmas lights just kept in the box, you need to start planning for a home decoration project. Don’t know where to start? Luckily, this article has some ideas that will give you a good head start.
Here are some of them.
Use them outside
If you don’t have string lights that will make your outdoors charming, you can instead use Christmas lights. You can even wrap these lights around tree trunks and branches. Many public offices, such as city halls, repurpose their municipal holiday decorations as outdoor decor that easily appeals to bystanders and visitors.
Use them as a wall decoration
If your bedroom wall is quite plain, you can lighten and brighten it up (literally) with your Christmas lights! You can create a pattern on the wall, tape the lights onto the pattern, and voila – a light installation! But if you want to make it more utilitarian, you can hang some of your pictures with your family and friends on the lights.
Put them in containers
If you have mason jars and jam jars lying around, you can re-purpose them as lamps. How? Put your Christmas lights inside them! This will give your room some dreamy appeal as you go to sleep. You can even use these items as gifts for your loved ones.
Christmas lights are not supposed to be only for Christmas. You just have to be imaginative so that you can create more beautiful design possibilities.
