String lights are such a great way to add character and light hearted fun to almost any space – indoor or outdoor. And if you think they’re only for Christmas, you’d be surprised at the ways to enjoy them all year long. They’re an easy way to add a little spark to almost anywhere, and the magical glow makes for a dreamy addition that goes up in minutes. Just string them up, plug them in, then bask in the beauty of twinkle lights.
Brighten up an outdoor space by draping simple string lights above. These duet lights are perfect, because the varying sizes add even more interest.
Want another spin on using lights outdoors? I used the Edison style string lights on my recent porch makeover. It’s amazing just how much light those little bulbs produce! My favorite part about this particular kind is they are commercial grade, so the sockets have a seal that keeps water from getting inside the bulbs (I hate it when that happens!)
Want to kick it up a notch with a little DIY action? Use some black wire globe lights to create a unique chandelier out of branches.
Bring a little cheer to your home office space by clipping up globe string lights above a desk. It gives such a happy vibe, don’t you think?
Those same lights are the kind I use to add a little more light to my somewhat dark kitchen. No worries about putting them up or taking them down – it only takes a matter of minutes.
Want to add more glamour to a small space? Add fairy lights around a mirror for instant impact.
My teenage daughter would LOVE to use this tumblr style idea for hanging up her photos with some traditional white string lights.
And last, but most certainly not least, sometimes more is more. Want to light it up? Then pull out all the stops with all the lights everywhere.
