If you're looking for a fun way to add a bit of feminine decor to your backyard, these DIY homemade cupcake wrapper lanterns are a simple project you can do in under an hour. These frilly string lights would be perfect for any summertime party.

To make this delicate paper lights begin by taking a string of unused white Christmas lights. Grab a set of unused white cupcake wrappers and pierce the bottom of the wrapper with one of the lights. Make sure that the light bulb comes through the center of the wrapper so that when you turn the light on it lights up the entire wrapper. The curvature of the frilly paper creates the perfect shade for these tiny Christmas lights.
