  1. I love decorating with string lights, thanks for all the inspiration!!! xoxox Christine from Little Brags

  2. What an awesome, inspiring post! I love white string lights, but never do anything with them! Maybe this year I will get crafty!

    1. The lights in the mason jar were battery operated. You can get them on Amazon or even Michaels!

  3. I had to pin – I love all of these ideas. I think I will just light the whole house with little lights.

  4. I have 3 small bushes lining my front walk. I have always kept white lights as a base and every holiday I add the designated color. For example..Halloween would have orange added to the base white. Valentine’s Day would have red added to the base white. St.Party’s would have green added to the base white. Of course Christmas would have multicolored lites added to the base white. During the summer months I usually go back to basic white.

  5. Hey Carrie! This is Aishwarya from India. These ideas are so beautiful and creative. I loved them! I’m surely going to use these for my room, Thanks a lot!

  6. Loved the tiniest lights in the jars or all over the house. So pretty,delicate, inviting and making a creative artist of me the more I look at them. Thanks.

  7. I love these small lights it’s perfect for my pictures of my parents RIP Where I light up their pictures and gives me peace. I even put the lights around my dads flag in the triangle box to show it off. It so relaxing and I feel like I’m honering them still

  8. These are the most gorgeous things ever! Reading your post makes me to look forward to Christmas coming as soon as possible! The Dixie cup garland is very lovely! I pick that up for my Christmas night!

  9. The ideas you have come up with to bring elegant lighting into the home are wonderful. Thank you for sharing! Your contributions in the home complement what we do to make the outside of the home beautiful as well. I am wondering what arrangements you have for making fences glow with beautiful light? Thank you!

  10. This is really helpful. I plan on trying to use some of these ideas for my home but it has also given me a motivation to find other creative ways to use the lights. Thank you!

  11. Amazing ideas! I am a Christmas enthusiast, and this is what I am doing during lockdown. I am collecting decorating ideas for Christmas. I hope we will beat corona soon.
