Do you too like creating DIY’s for december holidays?
Yesterday I noted in my Sunday Instagram publication, I haven’t done anything to decorate our home for Christmas yet. But there’s hope because I have worked on a DIY that found its place on my fireplace and I’m sure it’s the thing that’ll launch me on the rest.
It’s because with my bloggers friends of Project Inside we chose to write about lighting for this December months’ topic and guess what? This motivated me to do a DIY I’ve seen in several different versions on Pinterest. I’ve made a star fixture with wooden sticks and Christmas lights.
So find out how I made it and see the result that found a place on my fireplace for the next thirty days!
To make this star lighting object, you will need:
– wooden sticks of the size you want (I took 2 sticks of 2m50 to create 5 sticks of 80 cm)
– Christmas lights
– nce-looking corde
– a saw (any kind, even manual)
– measuring tape
– fine wire (for gardening for example)
Measure the length of the sticks you have chosen and then saw them. Next, sand the ends and arrange the sticks you’ve made in a star formation. With the corde you attach the ends as in the example. And then you just tie the Christmas lights on your star with the wire.
When you get to styling your star in your home, try not to overdo it! The shape and the lights are already very present and with some natural branches (of fir or eucalyptus for example) the effect is already guaranteed!
With real ‘natural’ branches?
For those of your that regularly take walksin the forest where you’d find pretty straight branches, there is also the option of making the nature version!
These are two examples that I found especially lovely.
I hope this post has made you want to diy a little for your Christmas decoration too. It’s such a lovely time of the year.
To inspire you some more, I invite you to revisit 9 Christmas ambiances I liked last year (with a horizontal Christmas tree!!) or the 10 alternatives to the traditional Christmas tree ornaments of last week.
And if creating a beautifully decorated Christmas table for the festive meals on the 24nd and 25th, you might want to peek at my Christmas table, also from last year!
