Mini string lights are a massive trend among party-throwers and decorating gurus alike. Their versatility, soft ambiance, warm glow, and chic appearance make the addition of mini lights a must have in your living space, and they are affordable to boot! Mini string lights are most used to illuminate your Christmas tree every winter. Don’t invest money for just one month of luminance. We’ve come up with five ways to use mini lights year-round.
5 Great Ideas for Hanging Mini String Lights
Frame a Window
Mini lights come in all different colors, styles, and lengths. For a smaller strand of clear lights, hang them around a window in your office or bedroom. The natural light from the window is already a great feature, so framing the window’s natural light with a warm and cozy glow adds eye-catching decor and the illusion of comfort to any living space. Use clear incandescent or warm white LED mini lights to create a warm, timeless look.
Wrap a Chandelier
We’ve all seen them. Whether they’re out in the neighbor’s trash can or sitting at a garage sale, old chandeliers with missing light bulbs are easy to come by. It may be difficult to find an appropriate bulb or the wiring might be broken, so people trash these treasures all the time. Recycle an old chandelier and wrap it with mini lights to give it the same luminous effect, without the trouble of restoring its original use. Mini string light wrapped chandeliers are a stylish and functional addition to any indoor or outdoor living space, and they’re sure to attract the attention of every party guest.
Create a Curtain
Whether you use this mini light light idea indoors or out, you’re sure to add decorative innovation and a warm glow to your living space. Hang mini lights in a dangling pattern against a wall or a window to create a mini light curtain. Great for backdrops on the porch, or evening glow in the bedroom, using mini lights to decorate a wall or window is a great way to add warmth and creativity to all your entertaining spaces.
Wrap the Tree Trunks
A typical way to hang Christmas lights for the holidays is by wrapping the clear or white mini lights around the tree trunks in your yard. The fun part is that this same technique can be used all year round with ease. Add an adirondack chair or a picnic table to the area where your tree trunks are wrapped, and create a luminous glow to bask in year-round. The soft ambiance of the wrapped trees is sure to be enjoyed!
Line the Fence
Backyard get togethers are a common entertainment option throughout the warm season. Decorating with mini lights creates a warm and comfortable atmosphere that can be inviting for any occasion. Start by stringing mini lights along the fence. You can drape them in a scalloped fashion, or stretch them along the top. To illuminate your entire yard for a get-together, we recommend also draping them across the patio for soft, intimate lighting.
Mini string lights are not just for the holidays. Put your money to good use, and let your creativity shine with these innovative solutions for decorating with mini lights year-round.
