XMAS PROJECT VIDEO: How to Make Paper Lights Garland Decoration

how to make paper lights garland stmapin up

Here’s a fun DIY paper-crafting project for party and holiday decorating . Paper Lights Garland solves the “one light goes out, they all go out” issue lol. Not just for Christmas, these would make fun Birthday decorations as well. Do them in blue and silver for Hanukkah, black and gold for New Years, red and pink for Valentines Day…the possibilities are endless.

These fun paper light bulb strings of garland are super easy to make. It’s an especially fun craft to do with the kids. Check out my video tutorial below for instructions.

Thanks to Lisa at StubbornlyCrafty. com for this fantastic decorating idea.
