How to Use Mini String Lights for Cozy Indoor Accent Lighting


Twinkle lights, commonly used only at Christmas time, can be useful when decorating your home any month of the year. The small, clear lights can provide mood lighting in your home and create a cozy lighting effect in any room of your house. The lights are inexpensive and can be used in a variety of ways. Stock up on twinkle lights during the after-Christmas sales and get creative with them year round.

  • Wrap your indoor plants with twinkle lights. Use the lights to accent the pot as well as the greenery.

  • Hang strings of lights behind sheer curtains to illuminate an entire wall with light.

  • Fill an empty, clean wine bottle or clear bowl with lights and place it on a table for a pretty centerpiece.

  • Cluster some lights along a mantel, bookshelf or bar.

  • Suspend lights from a counter or hang from a table.

  • Wrap a standing lamp with lights and turn the lamp off. Use the lights to add warmth to the room instead of the brighter lamp.

  • Weave lights in and out of chair rungs.

  • Suspend lights from the ceiling in an arch formation, or cluster groups of lights in corners.

  • Line the room with lights along the walls or floors.
