I was inspired to create these light covers when looking for decorative lights for my room. Many of the lights I found were $30 for a strand of ten lights that aren’t easily replaced, so I thought I might as well make some homemade ones using recycled materials and put them on the Christmas lights I already had.
Although this project is doable on your own, it is faster and more fun to do with friends. I recommend doing some of the more tedious steps of this project while watching a movie or listening to music. These light covers are great for decorating any space from a dorm room to an outdoor patio!
This project is 10 steps and takes about 6 hours to make 20 covers.
