A DIY Light Bright That Rivals a Starry Night

What You’ll Need

  • stretched canvas
  • paint
  • brushes
  • groundcloth or newspapers to protect your floor
  • pencil
  • awl
  • white twinkly tree lights
  • craft glue

You can find the complete Blueprint directions here or read on for the directions below.

Start by painting a stretched canvas from an art-supply store (Blueprint used a pale-pink latex paint, I picked a light-gold color because the walls of my house are all beige.)
Plot out your design by penciling dots on the back, keeping them a half inch apart.
Gently press an awl through each dot to make a hole slightly smaller than the diameter of the bulb (the Blueprint creators and I both used white Christmas lights).
Press a bulb into each hole; secure each with craft glue. (I skipped the glue step just in case any of the lights blow out.)
