With Christmas fast upon us I thought I would start to get jiggy with it! You see last year I was basically the Grinch and didn’t want to know about it let alone even send out a Christmas card.
I am now back in to the swing of things and really getting in to the Christmas spirit.
While reading Better Homes and Gardens Magazine I saw a gorgeous idea of using battery operated lights wrapped around an orb.
It was so easy to make. All you need is:
2 x hanging wire planter baskets (I purchased mine from Bunnings)
1 x can of silver spray paint
1 x bag of clear plastic cable ties
Battery operated Christmas lights (I purchased mine from Bunnings and there are 56 lights in total)
Spray paint the wire baskets silver and allow to dry. Cable tie them together to form an orb. Wrap the lights around the orb and cable tie in place. Sit battery operator inside the bottom part of the orb.
I have mine hanging in our alfresco area so we can see it lit up at night. It would also be a cute idea for a children’s bedroom too.
