Hooray – it’s officially the season of outdoor parties! I love relaxing with friends in the backyard after the sun goes down and I love how a backyard looks decorated with strands of globe lights. The glass bulbs give just the right amount of illumination to set the ambiance. I’m super excited to show you how to dress up a basic strand of globe lights with some fake flowers for a beautiful floral-inspired touch. This is one of the easiest, fastest DIY projects I’ve done to date – it was so easy, it astonished me. I’m not going to lie – I’m head over heels in love with the finished result.
On a recent trip to Target, I saw 20 foot strands of globe lights in white – normally, you see dark green wiring. I grabbed a few strands to have on hand. (They stay up on our screened in porch pretty much all summer.) Then I spotted some sweet little bunches of decent looking fake flowers on a trip through my local craft store, and as a bonus, they were on sale! An idea started percolating and I made a break for my studio to start playing around.
