I cut tissue paper in the shape of lights of all colors. Plexi glass is what I used.
Black puff paint for the string to add lights to.
Modge Podge to place the lights on the string.
Black puffy paint to make the lights look attached to the string.
Black puffy paint to write “Merry Christmas” and silver puffy paint for the snow flakes. I also used color matching puffy paint around the edges of the lights to make them show up better.
