One of my favourite parts of Christmas when I was a kid was when my Grandma would put out her bubble lights. They were like magic to me.
I suppose they're meant to be put on a tree, but my Grandma always lined them up in the window behind her Christmas village so that's how I like to display them now too. But that can be challenging when they look like this....
So, I came up with a wonderful recycle project that makes life with bubble lights much easier!
-empty Christmas wrap tube
-pencil and measuring tape
1) Count out how many lights are on your string and make the same number of markings on your tube, equal distance apart.
2) Use your craft knife to cut holes at each of your markings. The holes should be big enough for your light bases to fit snugly.
3) Now just take the lights out of the sockets and set them aside and then ease the cord into the tube, pulling up the sockets into each hole.
4) Place the lights back in the sockets.
That's it! I just set mine up on my window sill and threw some fake greenery on top to cover the tube. You could paint the tube to help camouflage it even more but I found that this step wasn't necessary (plus I was throwing a party in a few hours and didn't have time for paint to dry).
Turn on your lights and watch the magic happen! Bubbles everywhere!
