Make a fringed light string

Christmas lights aren’t just for Christmas.  There are a ton of ways you can dress them up for other occasions as well!  While these particular colors make the project read Halloween-y, the fringed lights that Kelly at Studio DIY made are an easy way to add a little color and personality to the decoration for nearly any event.  If you are concerned about the potential fire hazard of gluing paper to your string of lights, look for LED lights which stay cooler to the touch.  And if you use glue that is repositionable or easy to remove, you can disassemble the fringe quickly when you are done and the lights will be as good as new, ready for your next crafty escapade.  [how to make a fringed light string]
