Christmas Lights Garland

Winter is the darkest time of the year but there are so many ways to bring light into the season and into your homes. These lights look festive and decorative and are so easy to create! By simply buying an inexpensive light strand and cutting out your own lampshades, you can create beautiful lights to hang in the windows or decorate the shelves of your home. The hardest part about making these decorations is deciding which vellum paper to choose from. This particular design is silver ornaments on white.
