Using 100 pretty white Christmas lights already chained along on an electric cord, it was then a simple, yet time-consuming task for Anna Zadecka to give each one a miniature lamp shade made out of part of an egg carton.

Edges of the cartons flair out like petals, creating a floral wreath out of the string of lights with different types of cartons too add accents of color throughout. The brightness of the white lights is toned down by the cardboard, creating a soft and more romantic glow that would be perfect for a Valentine's Day dinner date. Dangle these around a room to instantly create an ethereal ambiance.
