A Warm Glow for the Entire Winter

Hate to say goodbye to your Christmas decorations? This is one you can leave up all winter for a cozy warm glow that looks beautiful with the lights turned on or off.
I gathered ribbons, jute, burlap, painter's cloth, and assorted neutral fabric scraps.
Each ribbon and length of fabric was tied to a set of white Holiday lights. I was sure to use the lights that do not get warm.
I used red check and plaid but you can make yours completely with neutral colors.
I wrapped the string around my sliding door for a beautiful warm glow that looks great even when the lights are not on.
This is one holiday decoration that can stay up all winter for a cozy ambiance that doesn't look like holiday lights.

      @Diane Baldwin I have a set of Xmas bulbs I twined around my window in my bedroom that have been burning continuously (they act as a night light and I leave them on in the day) for 3 years without problems.
