5 Easy DIY Craft Projects Using Moon Lights.
#1. Wall Photo Display.
I’m always trying to figure out inexpensive ways to display pictures and a simple strand of decorative Moon Lights is one of my favorites! All I did was wrap a strand of Star Moon Lights around some small clothes pins, added some photos, and then hung on my wall to enjoy. The small battery pack is easily hidden on a nearby shelf and since the wire is just wrapped around the clothespin, I can use all the supplies later if I decide to take down the display.
If you’re looking for an Instant Hanging Lantern all you need is a Mercury Glass Mason Jar, a Wire Mason Jar Hanger, and a strand of Moon Lights. Just wrap the Wire Mason Jar Hanger around the top, insert the lights, and turn on. Super quick and perfect for any porch or patio!
Need the perfect finishing touch for that new yarn wreath you just made? Add a strand of Moon Lights (I used shamrocks for my St. Patrick’s Day wreath) for that extra pop of light and color! The small battery packs makes it super easy to hide in the back.
Make an inexpensive art piece with just a nighttime printout from the internet, a blank canvas, and Moon Lights. Adhere the print with Mod Podge then secure the lights to the back of the canvas. Turn on the lights and it looks like the stars are really shining!
#5: Easter Egg Garland.
Easter may be over, but make sure to pin this for next year! This Easter Egg Garland is an absolute breeze! Depending on the size of your strand of Moon Lights, assemble a variety of Colorful Plastic Easter Eggs and enclose the lights inside. The eggs close right around the extremely thin LED wire and create an instant garland!
