Twinkle Lights Room Divider Makeover

I had an old room divider that was nothing special to look at so I decided to add some "magic" to it with twinkle lights. It was easy and inexpensive. My motto is you can never have to many twinkle lights! Even if you don't have a room divider, hopefully this idea will inspire you in more ways to use them!

Twinkle Lights (LEDs are best as they last forever)
Safety pins
This is my original old room divider. I'd had it in storage for quite a while.
All you need are some twinkle lights and safety pins.
Decide how you will arrange your lights ahead of time. Then carefully pin them on the back of your divider being careful to NOT go through the wire itself.
The finished result is beautiful. I have more photos and a video of the lights flashing on my post below.

      @Ellen Yes, LED lights are low/very low heat and cost practically nothing to use.

    What does the plaque say? I went to your blog (and I'm one of your followers!) but I still can't tell what it says other than "dragons".

    I just bought a room divider and what a great idea. I am going to use battery operated lights on a timer for mine. Thank you for the idea.

    I would love to do this as elegant privacy for my deck. Any suggestions on how to make it waterproof?
