7 Ways To Decorate With Twinkle Lights Year-Round

Need a little sparkle to brighten up your day? Why not try decorating with twinkle lights in the house, all-year round. Even if Christmastime isn’t for a few more months or it’s long past, twinkle lights can be use to add a touch of shine, a bit of femininity and of course light to any nook or cranny you decide to hang them. Take a look at all these ideas and see if you’ve got the guts to decorate the house with some twinkling, dangling, adorable little lights!!

1. Create a canopy over the bed.

Canopies over your bed add romance, whimsy and a lot of surprise. Create something magical by using twinkle lights alone or with some drape-like fabrics. It’ll be relaxing, great to read yourself to sleep by and  a unique touch to your personal space. And remember, it doesn’t have to even be December to have them hanging around!

2. Use them as extra lighting.

In the movie room, basement or attic, try using pretty twinkle lights as extra lightning. Yes, they’re cute but they’re also quite functional. Dress up those drab spaces with a touch of style that’s versatile enough to make a difference in these rooms.

3. Adorn your bare banisters.

Decorate a space that’s usually left unnoticed by just adding a set of lights. Especially if your home is a bit more contemporary and clean, this idea will add a pop of inspiration and light to an unsuspecting place.

4. Accessorize pretty decor.

Enhance some of your bigger, extra special home accessories by adding a draping of twinkle lights. Over big mirrors, along a table …. whatever you’d like to add an extra bit of oomph to!

5. DIY your own sign.

This is perfect for the kitchen or the craft room. DIY yourself your very own glowing sign using twinkle lights! Draw out your name, a phrase or something clever to add some personality to your home.

6. Spruce up the patio.

You can always add some extra, pretty lighting to the patio or garden area. Have guests over for dinner in the evenings and turn these babies on. The space will be lit and quite dreamy too.

7. Romanticize the bathrooms.

This is perfect if you happen to have a tub. Drape some dainty twinkle lights along the ceiling for a nice, relaxing feelings. Bubble bath anyone?!
