Patio Party Lights
These patio party
lights look festive hanging in your yard
for summer evening barbecues, and they are SO EASY to make! If you have
a collection of small booze bottles, you can put this summer craft
together in no time. All you need is an assortment of booze bottles, a
string of white lights, and some floral tape. Where
do you get these little bottles? Ask friends to start saving them from
airplane travel. Ask the flight attendant to save any empty bottles
from the flight. You can also buy them at the state liquor store. Read
on to learn how to make these party lights, step by step.
- A string of
white holiday lights
- A collection of small booze
- Floral tape
1. Begin by removing the top from each bottle and throwing it
Next, begin wrapping floral tape around the mouth of the bottle several
times. Floral tape sticks upon itself so wrap it tightly.
2. After a few times around, place a light into
the mouth of the
bottle. Have the floral tape go up and over the wire to the other side,
creating a little loop. Go around this a few times to make it more
strong, and end by wrapping the floral tape around the mouth of the
bottle a few more times to secure. Use the photos below for reference.
adding on a booze bottle on to each light. Enjoy those
readers, Leona, came up with a wonderful and unique variation of this
craft that I would like to share with you. She cut off the
top parts of water and pop bottles, and drilled a hole through the top
of each cap for the light to be pushed through. Thank you
Leona for the photo and the idea!
