During the summer, I love hosting get togethers on the rooftop of my apartment. One of things I enjoy most about hanging out on the rooftop is being able to stargaze while socializing with friends. To create the perfect mood lighting that doesn't distract from the stars, I DIYed these super cool string lights inspired by my summer nights spent by the campfire. Let me show you how easy it is to make this rustic lighting to illuminate your outdoor space.
Aleene's Spray Acrylic Sealer (optional)
Variegated yarn ( I used warm tones)
Small sticks cut to 6" length
Plastic tray or box to squeeze glue in
String of low votive lights with bulbs
Start building your cage and glueing parts together like shown. I used clips to hold my cage together while it dried.
In your plastic tray, lay down your about 4 yards of yarn and squeeze a large portion of Aleene's glue over top.
Pull the yarn through your fingers to evenly coat your yarn with Tacky Glue. This will make the yarn super stiff once dried!
Tie your yarn onto one of the sticks and start wrapping the yarn around the cage until you run out of yarn. Pull tight as you go! You can add more or less yarn to create your look based on your personal preference. Tie off the end around a corner section of the cage to secure. Let dry thoroughly. Repeat this process to create more cages. If desired for added protection from the elements, spray with a coat of Aleene's Spray Acrylic Sealer and let dry.
