Make Your Own Patio Lights

I spent a lot of the weekend looking for patio lights Home Depot and Wal-Mart nothing so I got the idea to make my own I am so happy with results!

So I thought I would share

all you need is Christmas lights and Dixie Cups (I use 3oz)
 cut a hole in the bottom of the cup

poke the lights through 
voila you have cute lights

then wait till husband gets home to hang them :)

 what do you think?

I think those are so cute!! I got some very Liberty of London-ish paper cups from Ikea a few months ago that would be adorable made into lights!!

I love it! I've been in a similar predicament. I wish I'd picked up some extra lights at Christmas to try this. Must go to Amazon.

Who says Christmas lights are only hung during Christmas? With this idea, your Christmas lights can now be hung all-year round. I have an idea; I think cupcake liners are also a good alternative for Dixie cups. What do you think? I want to try using the cupcake liners one of these days. :)->Allison Shallenberger
