DIY Projects Using String Lights: Wall Art
Let’s up your wall art game even though you don’t know how to paint or a photography afficionado.
You are just going to need a blank canvas, glue, brush, some glitters, and string lights.
First thing you need to do after getting the supplies is to apply watered-down glue on the canvas with the brush. You may use paint brush or foam brush.
Cover the whole canvas or just half of it. Pour glitters on the glued part of the canvas. Make sure that the glitters are spread evenly and that no white space remains on the glued part.
Poke holes that are barely bif enough for the string lights’ bulbs. Insert the bulbs one by one on the holes.
You now have a wall art for your living room or bedroom.

Glass luminaries are some of the DIY projects with string lights that have different versions.
Most of the time, the effect people want to achieve here is the illusion of captured fireflies in glass containers.
You can make cute luminaries by placing string lights in multiple beer or wine bottles that are made from colored glass. Even though your string lights have the usual color, the colored glass will give off a different glow.
You can also make glass luminaries by putting string lights in clear glass containers. For a fancier look, you can layer the lights with tulle or other sheer fabric and some seashells or beads.
Instead of fabric, you can also put burlap and/or soft twigs.
You can replace the other contents of the jar every time you are celebrating an occasion. For example:
- During Halloween, you can place plastic creepers and faux cobwebs.
- For Christmas, put glittered twigs and other ornaments inside.
- During Thanksgiving, you can put some straws of hay and baby pumpkins.
