What a difference a little garland makes! It was cheap and simple to make but I will warn you, you’re going to need an afternoon to do this project. Cutting the strips took about 1 hour and tying them on to the lights took about 3 hours. Granted, I was interrupted (a lot) but you get the picture. In the end, I love the way it turned out and will definitely do this again for other holidays.
14 ft. string of orange lights ($3.50 at Big Lots)
54 x 108 in vinyl tablecloths ($.98 each at Walmart)
Total investment: $6.50
1. Cut each tablecloth into strips, about the size of a ruler.
2. Now for the fun part. Tie each strip to the string of lights.
3. Hang outside and enjoy!
