Guest Post: Kimia

Hey guys!
It's Kimia.
I've been looking online for some cute DIY crafts that I can use as decorations in my room, and this particular idea looked really cool to me.
FLOWER LIGHTS! made from the simplest materials that are available in any craft/department store.

The materials needed are:
-different colors and different sizes of cupcake/muffin liners.
-a string of fairy (or Christmas) lights.
-one pair of scissors.
-one Stanley knife.

Here are the steps to making the flower lights:
Step 1: Fold the cupcake/muffin liners into triangles (as shown in the picture) and use the scissors to cut the corners off. A few of the liners should be cut to a point to be used as the flower base, and a few of the other colored liners should be cut so that they have rounded edges to be used as the flower body. Keep the other colored liners in their original, round shape, and these will be used as the center of the flower.

Step 2: Cut/poke holes (approximately the size of each of the fairy/Christmas lights) in each of the liners.

Step 3: Stick one of the lights through one of the liners that represent the flower base. Then stick one of the liners that represent the flower body on top. Finally, stick one of the round liners that represent the center of the flower on top of the second layer.

Step 4: Repeat the steps for the rest of the lights and hang them wherever you like.

I hope you all enjoy this fun DIY as much as I did!
Lots of love!
