A DIY Light Bright That Rivals a Starry Night
What You’ll Need
- stretched canvas
- groundcloth or newspapers to protect your floor
- 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.)
