Antique Pink Flowering Strand of Lights

Here it is! The prettiest project I've ever done!! I LOVE this strand of lights covered in crumpled hand dyed coffee filter paper. They are quite a bit time consuming adding paper roses to all 50 lights. But the final product is absolutely amazing. The photos turned out beautiful but you MUST see these in person. You will have the hardest time trying to decide just one place to put this Antique Pink Flowering Strand of lights.


These garlands measure over 2 yards and have 50 lights covered in pretty delicate looking paper flowers. The cording is brown and the flowers are attached with a white floral tape.
I have tried this in almost every room of my house now and I have yet to find a place they don't look stunning. Hanging over a Dresser Mirror, A free standing mirror, over the curtains, windows, over Kitchen cabinets, Setting in the middle of your table, outside wrapped around the deck, Hanging from the ceiling, my daughters room. SOO many perfect places for these strands of delicate looking sturdy strands of gorgeousness that I havn't gotten to try like an Antique Booth, Craft Fair, Vintage boutique!

If you can imagine this anywhere in your house I urge you to come see the listings in my Etsy shop!

They sure do look pretty. I'm thinking they'd be fun in the backyard for late Summer dinners...

Beautiful, Angela! Where ever did you get such an awesome idea? Before I hop over to your Etsy I was wondering if these are fire safe? I'd love to have a set.

Brilliant!
Really just stunning, love it!
And what a clever way to turn the baby dress below into a bag, that is so original and fabulous!

This is absolutely lovely! Don't you just adore creating? I am in the middle of writing my masters thesis, but I take breaks to work on projects; I have to or else I go nuts! Anita

Yes, Angela, I really enjoyed my visit chez toi! Those paper flowers are really cool! I am into altered art at the moment, taking vintage photos of my family and photocopying them in a high quality resolution and going to town with the glitter! I will feature my projects soon on my blog. Keep posted! Anita

Hi Angela thank you for visiting my blog, the lights are lovely, I also made these using crepe paper that I tea dyed, you are right they are time consuming but well worth it. My blog is Vintage Vignette, I think it may have been The Vintage Vignette who made the comment, but I did enjoy your blog, love the soft romantic look.

Yes, they look very stunning. I think it would be nice to have that one in the living room.

Very very pretty but a warning to all. My husband has been a firefighter for over 30 years and he would have a fit if he saw these. They may be a fire hazard so please, please be careful.
