Christmas Lights for DIY Cloches
Make a unique and lovely table centerpiece Christmas cloche and add some thin and elegant LED twinkle lights. To make your holiday vignettes with wrapped Christmas lights inside is pretty simple and economical.

Christmas Wreath made of Christmas Lights
I love traditional Christmas wreaths, I think they are elegant, colorful and can be personalized as much as you want. This year, however, I want to take Christmas lights to the next level by creating a Christmas wreath with string lights.

Alternative Christmas Trees to Die for
Christmas trees are a must-have in every house, and my home is no exception. Unfortunately, I never had the chance to get a real Christmas tree, so when I was younger, I always had fake ones at home. They can be very pretty too if you use the right ornaments, but let's be honest, there's no tree that can compare to a real Christmas tree. Or so I thought. For this year I found a great alternative for a Christmas tree. It is not a miniature tree, not a Christmas tree made of Mason Jars. It is a Christmas tree purely made of Christmas lights.

It is not uncommon to see Christmas trees in the street made of Christmas lights, like the one from the picture above. While we could do that at home on a smaller scale, it is quite complicated and time-consuming. Instead, I found an easier alternative to the beautiful Christmas lights trees so that you can bring inside your home a piece of Christmas joy.
