Shine a light on it.....

Have you ever seen CandyLights? I love them. I just got two strands to dress up A's dorm room.
They are very pretty all by themselves but it's easy to dress them up, too.

They are small white lights that are dipped in silicone. They come in several colors.

I just got inexpensive crepe paper rolls and cut strips, in two layers, at about 12" long.

I then scrunched it......

wrapped the scrunched pieces around the lights...

and wrapped white stem tape around the paper and lights.

I love the two tones.

This is not their final resting place. They are headed to Amherst. I'll have A send me a picture when she puts them up.


  1. Well, these are a first for me...too cute. As for my sil, I am a woman with two daughters and love, love, love having a son...I told my daughter if they should ever divorce, I would wish her all the best, but I was keeping Jim!

  2. Thanks for visiting today, alway enjoy a note from you...

  3. How wonderfully creative. I must do this at Xmas this year in gold and white.

  5. What a wonderful post Diann! I love what you've done with our Candylights! I hope to hold contests in the future to see how creative people can get using Candylights.
    Thanks again!

  6. Why haven't I thought of this? Actually I know why, I don't have a creative bone in my body, but that's besides the point:) A local shop in my town sells something *very* similiar to these for like $65! I'm making these for presents...thanks!
