We recycled our Christmas lights for this post Christmas window display.
They would look lovely strung across a room for any celebration.
Take old sheets and shred by cutting 9" by 3" strips.
Tie them onto your lights and decorate that outdoor patio soirée.
Add different colors to make them as festive as you like.
I saw some inexpensive candy apple red sheets at Freddy's that would fit the bill.
