DIY: Christmas Light Wall Art

My daughter needed a nightlight in her new bathroom, but didn’t want a traditional plug-in (“those are for babies,” she scoffed). I needed to fill the blank wall above the toilet, but wanted something a little more interesting than a framed print.

I free-handed this design, but if you need a little help bringing your vision to fruition without a lot of trial and error, then I highly recommend “tracing” your design on the wall first by lightly taping string or yarn in the shape of the pattern you’ll be pinning.

Simple, fun & lovely with the lights on or off!
