Happy New Year everyone! As we enter January, you will probably begin taking down those Christmas decorations real soon. While we wish we could keep Christmas decorations up all year long, we understand the majority of them need to be put away. However, there’s one Christmas decoration that you can use year-round that can bring elegance into any room and that’s Christmas lights. So before you put away those lights, take a quick peek at what you can do to make the magic of Christmas last year-round.
Shine Light On Your Pictures
There’s no question that you probably have some very memorable pictures in your home. Sure, you can go the traditional route and showcase them in frames on your mantel. But, why not be a little different and shine some light on these photos with mini lights? String a strand of lights from your ceiling, and use clothespins to hang your pictures. This decorative display can serve as a conversation starter.
Capture The Light With Mason Jars
Who doesn’t love a little DIY project? The combination of battery operated lights and mason jars provide the opportunity to create an easy and pretty nightlight. Get a clear mason jar and add some white lights for an elegant touch. Looking to get a little more creative? Why not decorate that mason jar and add some colorful lights? It’s an inexpensive way to add a romantic touch to your decor.
Decorative Bedroom Lighting With Icicle Lights
We know how beautiful icicle lights look on gutters during the holiday season, but did you know that they can look just as beautiful in your bedroom all year long? If you (or your kids) are looking for a decorative way to add a little more light to the bedroom, icicle lights could be the perfect option for you. Take a strand of lights and place it on the wall in your room however you want to. If you want a little tip; we think that the closer together you put them the better they look. When you plug them in, you will see how beautiful they look, and light up your room!
Compelling Window Lighting With Mini Lights
It’s no surprise that your windows are probably one of the most important features of your home. Now, what if we told you that there was a way to bring a little light into your home at night using your windows? Try outlining windows with mini lights for extra light. It’s much more fun than a lamp or overhead lights. It looks great in an apartment or a teenager’s room. We recommend using clear lights for this as it will bring an elegant touch. If you’re looking for a decorative way to bring some light into your home, this is the perfect option for you!
