The use of string lights has become popular in recent years. In the Netflix series Stranger Things, viewers are left bewildered by the combination of letters of the English alphabet strung altogether with string lights. It was the way to communicate by persons trapped in another parallel universe, the Upside Down, to their loved one on Earth. Since then, more people have explored ways to integrate these twinkly lights indoors.
These string lights are easy to use than you think. There are numerous interesting ideas on how to perfectly carry out battery-operated fairy lights in your own home. With creativity and resourcefulness, you may even execute do-it-yourself alternatives in making your home a brighter place, especially in lighting up your child’s room.
Brighten a Mason Jar
This is one of the simplest ways to use micro LED lights, and there are many varieties of mason jars that you can purchase online. Add a LED candle or string LED lights, and then hang it on a piece of wood for a rustic feel.
This decor project can be done at home. You can also use an ordinary night-light, which has an accessible on-and-off switch.
Integrate Celestial Bodies
By painting your ceilings with bold and dark colors, you may install heavenly forms and constellations with the use of LED fairy lights. These give the child’s room a unique look by giving a creative touch to the source of light.
Another option to bring a starry night in your child’s room is to make a constellation jar. By using a small mason or jelly jar, a disposable cake pan, and other craft supplies, you can create a constellation out of string lights.
You may also create cloud night-lights that will eventually resemble a real storm cloud. This alternative is not expensive. You just need to have string lights and some paper lanterns.
Bring characters to life
If your children are fond of animated or cartoon characters, like Ariel in The Little Mermaid or Simba in The Lion King, you may use LED fairy lights to brighten up these characters in your child’s room. A do-it-yourself Olaf from Frozen is also a great jump start. To execute this DIY, you will need polystyrene cups, tape, pipe cleaners, googly eyes, and craft supplies.
Make Fireflies Your Child’s Bright Companions
In this homemade alternative, you are not required to bring an actual group of fireflies to light up your child’s room. In fact, you only need plastic Easter eggs, firefly string lights, and craft supplies. While that decoration is a mere illusion of having fireflies inside the room, your child will surely enjoy the light it brings in his or her room.
Do It like the Egyptians Did
You are not required to take your child to the pyramids of Giza just to have a taste of Egypt. There are several tips on how to carry out an illuminating pyramid in your child’s room.
Fill the whole room with pyramid-shaped crafts with the string lights that will brighten the edges. You may also simply print off the pyramids and attach them together with the lights to the wall.
A Few Reminders
There are many fun and creative ways you can use string lights to decorate a room. Most suggested ideas can be carried out at home, and simple materials may be used in executing these do-it-yourself string light concepts.
Remember, though, that it is best to use only soft lights to protect your child from the dangers brought by light emission. Eco-friendly and low-wattage lights may also save you from high electricity costs. You may also need to put into consideration different factors, such as the room size and color in using the string lights.
