Step 1: Get Lit
Find Lights anywhere they have them. I found them in our garage, but you can also locate them on sale pretty much everywhere after the holidays at Taget, VONS, Long's Drugs, and most likely Wall*Mart.
Step 2: Design and Poke
On a seperite piece of paper, draw out your design before you start poking it out free hand. It woun't look very good...
For the poking out holes part I used a screw driver,but a few alternatives are using a pencil, simple pen, drill, large nail, airsoft gun (with pellets), knuckle duster, exacto knife, or and a drill press.
Step 3: Insert There
This is the hard part, but don't think of it that way.
Take each light and using *Common Sense insert each light into the designed pattern of individual holes.
**Unique Sense and Less Common Sense may also be used.
Step 4: Plug-it-in
Step 5: The OFF Position
Douse the lights-
& show people what you have thrown together!
