2nd day of Christmas crafts: Candy lights

It’s our second day of the Christmas crafts challenge! I’m feeling so inspired by Christmas lights hung up around houses in the neighborhood, I decided to create a fun DIY with these candy lights.

Scroll down to view the full tutorial and check out some more Christmas craft inspiration!

You’ll Need:

  • Corsage boxes
  • String of lights
  • Scissors
  • Wire or pipe cleaners
  • Wire cutters
  • Cellophane rolls in different colors
  • Tape

For the first day of Christmas crafts, we brought you a tutorial for these DIY glitter trees. For this month’s DIY project for Oh Happy Day, I tapped into my mom’s endless artistic reservoir again and remembered how one year for Christmas she made these candy lights and put them on our whole house. It was pretty fantastic looking, and I think it turned out well again this time. I love the photos that Emily took. This image above is one of my absolute favorites of all time roots and all (sick!). Should have asked her to photoshop those suckers out, ha!

Holiday candy & decor ideas

What I love about these candy lights is that they’re not only perfect for Christmas, but they’re also perfect for Halloween! Here at Lars, we’ve done a lot of different candy crafts including this candy garland, Halloween candy poppers & Christmas poppers, and candy cane wrapping. You can never have too much candy, right? Ok, maybe you can, but when it comes to holiday decorations, I say the more candy the better!

For Christmas decor, take a look at these dyed bottlebrush trees to add even MORE color to your holiday decor! This DIY Christmas bulb advent calendar is a favorite here at Lars, and it doubles as both decoration and a fun Christmas activity! And finally, we couldn’t get through the holidays without a paper flower tutorial! Make your own Christmas flower decorations with this paper Poinsettia flower tutorial.
