The lights can be strung together as you would for a christmas tree. They do not generate much heat, but do get a little warm. I never leave them on ...
To get into the halloween spirt, ooooooohhhhhhh, I decided to make some decorative lamps for the holiday. These were easy to make, and virtually free, except for the lights. I bought those after christmas last year, and they were on sale at walmart for $1.00 for a string of 20! I bought 5 or 6, but wish I had got lots more at that price. The key to the project is that the lights are low voltage, low amperage, do not get hot and are easy to handle. Let's get started.
Step 1: Gather The Materials and Tools
Most of the tools and supplies are shown in this step. Orange paper, black cardstock, acrylic paints, cutting tools, straight edge, etc. And of course the lights. These are regular christmas tree lights, found in any dept. or craft store.
