Angel lights, also known as fairy lights, string lights or seed lights, are often kept stored in the attic or closet until Christmas time rolls around. But these unique and pretty lights can be used for everyday décor, year round lighting, and even the most unconventional applications. Transform a seemingly simple object into something beautiful or create the perfect atmosphere in your home, patio, garden or office. No matter what time of year it is, angel lights are perfect for stylish and clever decoration.
First, it important to know your options since Angel lights come in several styles. Be sure to purchase outdoor angel lights if you’re using them for your patio or garden. These are weatherproof, waterproof, and suitable for using outside. Different light options include LED, 12V, and 24V. It is also a good idea to choose the size and shape of the bulb. Small bulbs create a Christmas-light look and are good for year-round use. Larger bulbs are more common on party lights and summer string lights. Finally, you can choose between white, amber, blue, green, pink, purple, red and many other colors.
Using Angel Lights in the Home
If you’re looking for a simple DIY project using angel lights, why not start in the bedroom? Drape and secure tulle to the ceiling above your bed or to your bed posts and add angel lights for a romantic and inviting canopy. For an added touch to wall decor, embellish hanging canvas or window frames with these delicate lights. You can also turn a boring, dim area into an alluring well lit living space or hang Angel lights above your favorite lounge chair or work desk for cozy lighting.
In the Patio or Garden
Is there anything more soothing than a hammock gently swinging under the trees? Add a strand of Angel lights for a more calming effect. An Angel light chandelier above a patio table can turn your backyard into an enchanting sanctuary. Create a cozy corner tucked away in your garden with Angel lights, a small bench, a pillow and warm blanket. Get creative and light up your entire backyard with Angel lights wrapped around bushes and deciduous trees making it a wonderful escape from reality.
Angel lights are a wonderful way of creating a magical atmosphere and making the most of a special feature, room or environment. Use them all year round in your home and garden and add a little more sparkle to your life.
