Do you have a lot of plastic canisters lying around in your house? If you do, here is something that you can do to brighten up your home this holiday season!
- clear canisters (depends on how many you want to use for your lights)
- Christmas lights (coloured or plain)
- fine-tip pen
- coloured paper
- film negatives
- cutter or X-Acto knife, scissors
Use your pen to mark an ‘x’ on the canister cover. Use that as a guide and put a slit on the ‘x’ following the marking that you made.
Cut out strips of coloured paper or film negatives that you could place inside the canister. Stretch your creativity! Place other items inside the canister, such as beads, glitters and other items that can improve the look of your Christmas lights.
Poke each light bulb through the cap of canister and snap the canister in place. Turn on your Christmas lights!
