Christmas light garland

Are you looking for an inexpensive and easy Christmas decoration or gift?  Look no further because help has arrived!  You can make this super easy Christmas light garland project for your home, office, or to give as a gift.

You will need a box of 140 mini Christmas lights and your choice of 4 different Christmasy fabrics with each color cut into 1" x 6" strips.  Keep in mind that even though I chose 4 colors, you can choose more if you like. 

Step 1:  Take one of the twist ties that held the lights together and use that to tie both ends of the light strand together.  Match up the first and last light - one end of your strand will be longer than the other.

Step 2:  Take one strip of fabric and tie it around both strands of lights.  I put one piece of fabric between each light, but you can put more between each if you want.  Alternate colors as you go.  My colors were red, red/white stripe, white, green with white polka dots. 

 Keep tying :) 
 This is a good project to work on when you're watching tv.

Step 3:  You're done!  These lights would be great on a small tree, a mantel, or on a window sill.  


This project would be good to use at Easter with pastel fabrics, or in the fall with beautiful reds, greens, and yellows.  Anyway you make it, it's an inexpensive cute decoration.
