Simple Holiday Decor | Lily Bee

Today I have a super simple holiday decor project that is so easy even a caveman can do it. I often say this or that is simple and people don't believe me. This little project is really that simple and even though I am using mine for holiday decor this could be done with any patterned paper and put up for just about any occasion.




The string of lights are battery powered and were purchased at Target. The lights can currently be found in the holiday light section but are available all year round as I got mine during the off season. There are 10 lights on a string and they are powered by 2 D batteries. My decorative light set is made from paper from the Lily Bee Christmas Cheer 6x6 Tiny Tablet. I simply punched 2 flowers from patterned paper, punched a hole in the center and then slipped the bulb through the punched hole. The large end from my Crop-a-dile punch was the perfect size hole so the bulb fit snugly without the flowers falling off. Once the flowers were in place I crunched them up just a bit. The garland is really subtle on my mantle and fits my style perfectly. This idea could easily be changed up by using a different punched shape, different paper or adding more layers.

Thanks for stopping by today and Happy Crafting!
