Add a Wreath of Lights to Your Patio!
Need a light on your porch or patio? Try this wreath. Use string lights and add them to a wreath for a fun project that will really light up the night. All you need is a few supplies and an outdoor outlet!
SUPPLIES NEEDED to make a light up wreath:
- 50′ Patio String with 33 G50 Pearl White Lights (I used four strands)
- Wire wreath frame (I used a 14 inch frame)
If you're having trouble with the steps, check out the video version.
Just start with your wire wreath form and the light strands and start wrapping.
Make sure that each socket is facing the front when wrapping.
When you get to the end of one strand, just plug in the next strand and keep wrapping.
Then just start screwing in your light bulbs.
A gorgeous wreath that is perfect for outdoors!
I love how it looks with the lights off.
But when you light up the wreath it really shines.
And y’all….this is bright! It will certainly work as a porch or patio light if you are looking for a unique lighting alternative.
For now, I am off to look at my gorgeous wreath while I sit outside with a tall glass of sweet tea.
I know that you will love this project as well. Be sure to pick up some globe lights and get started on your own DIY light up wreath.
Add this one to your must make list. Will you use white bulbs or go with a color? Go ahead…tell us in the comments! I would love to hear what you think and if you will be making your own version.
