8 Ways To Use Holiday String Lights All Year Long Hgtv S

Start out the new year with a hassle-free holiday breakdown.

Bordered by string lights, this chic built-in wine rack features light wood racks for several bottles of wine.

Don’t store your Christmas decorations just yet. Use it for your New Year’s Eve party instead.

For the holidays fill your outdoor lanterns with greenery, pine cones and battery powered lights. These are perfect for outdoor entertaining.

Give seasonal globe lights a glam holiday makeover with a coat of dazzling metallic spray paint. So long, forest green; hello, holiday gold!

For a fun and unexpected twist, try adding some strings of lights to your garden shed or chicken coop. With so many varieties of lights available, like these snowflakes, the possibilities are endless.

Try wrapping trees with rope lighting for a striped effect. These are so pretty in the garden that they can be left up year round.

If bare walls have your home looking a little “blah,” put string lights to work. In this family room by Justin DiPiero, a zigzag of lights looks like a sculptural installation above the sofa and softly illuminates the space.

8 Ways to Upcycle Christmas Decorations for Your New Year’s Eve Party

Make outdoor wreaths and swags more festive by adding small strings of battery powered lights that can be set on a timer.

Give your outdoor space an enchanting glow by stringing lights around your deck or patio. Complete the ambiance by placing a few lanterns around your seating areas or hanging them from trees.

Nix the unsightly cord from your holiday lights by wrapping it with gorgeous dip-dyed yarn. Choose a yarn color that coordinates with your bulb color to really knock it out of the park. Then, leave them out all year long.

Create modern art that doubles as ambient lighting from plywood, trim and twinkle lights.

To make it snow with lights, route an extension cord up the tree and hang strands of lights from the canopy of the tree. Each snowfall is created from a single strand of lights that come from the center of the tree like spokes on a wheel.

A string of lights adds instant dreaminess to any child’s bedroom or playroom (or, heck, even an adult’s room). In this amazing kids’ space designed by Chango and Co., string lights are draped over a teepee so it glows within, creating the perfect spot to nap or curl up with a book.

Looking for inspiration for your holiday design? Atlanta’s Home for the Holidays Designer Showhouse is the motherlode of genius decorating ideas.

Chango and Co. created every child’s dream play space in this expansive playroom. Floor mattresses line one wall and are topped with playful throw pillows for crashing, a teepee provides a place for dreaming, and rope swings hang from the ceiling for extra fun. A bold Swiss cross pattern livens up the walls, and black trim highlights the architectural features of the room.

Dream Playroom Features Teepee, Rope Swings and Floor Cushions

To make this wintry watering can, add a couple of inches of water to the watering can, tuck in assorted greenery and top it with outdoor lights.

Holiday lights are used to create a built-in night-light in a little boy’s bedroom. Glow-in-the-dark stars accompany the moonlight for some extra sparkle.

These multicolored lights get a fete-worthy update by adding frosted, round holiday ornaments over a smattering of bulbs. Randomly skipping bulbs gives the look a curiously modern edge.

This is the ultimate vegetable gardener’s holiday tree. Simply invert a tomato cage. Beginning at the top, wrap the cage with a few strings of lights and enjoy this unique take on a Christmas tree.

String up lights and lanterns around your outdoor space to give an enchanting twinkle to any garden party. The soft glow will invite everyone to linger outside in the nighttime summer air. Line lanterns and smaller string lights around your seating area, and hang a few off tree branches for a touch of ambiance.

Trendy marquee signs can be expensive to buy (either new or vintage), so why not DIY? Use larger globe string lights to make this oversized letter featured in HGTV Magazine, or smaller lights to make a mini marquee letter.

If you’re like me, your house looks its best around Christmas, decked out in glittering ornaments and twinkling lights. Once January rolls around and the festive decor starts to come down, things can look a little drab. If you have the post-holiday decorating blues, keep those string lights out of storage and tackle these projects that’ll give your home a warm glow year round.

Looking for the perfect addition to your holiday party decor? Make an elegant and inexpensive chandelier fashioned from a branch and flowers.

Whimsical lighting steals the show in this cozy family room. Behind the sofa, string lights gracefully adorn the wall, and above the armchair, a lighted art installation adds a cool, crisp pattern to the space.

Take a look back at our past posts, from entertaining and design trends to up-and-coming HGTV shows.  

Halloween party season is upon us! Conjure up a spellbinding soiree with our tricks and treats.

For this craft, add a layer of fake snow to the bottom of a glass container. Next add in wintry miniatures and then tuck in a set of battery powered lights to illuminate the evening sky.

For a fun twist, snip assorted greenery from your yard and tuck the clippings into your front porch planter. Then add a string of lights to greet evening guests.

Placing pingpong balls over traditional string light bulbs creates a soft glow. Go with a battery pack so you have more options on where to use these super-cool lights.

How cool is this lighted wall art? Pick your favorite constellations, paint them onto a piece of plywood, drill holes for the stars and push twinkle lights through the holes. Hang on a wall and wow all of your guests.

Enhance the sculptural properties of beautiful driftwood with copper-wired LED lights. The battery pack frees you up to hang it just about anywhere.

Try adding a few of these weatherproof lanterns to small crooks along the walkway. To make, coat the inside of a canning jelly jar with mod podge and cover with glitter. Allow it to dry. Add a small strand of battery powered lights, then tuck ribbon under the lid and screw the lid on tight.

There’s still plenty of time to add Christmas’ classic flowering plant to your decor.

When the weather heats up and you no longer need the warmth of a fire, you don’t have to completely neglect your fireplace; try wrapping logs with string lights for a glow you can enjoy year round. Here, designer Brian Patrick Flynn dressed up a fireplace with white LED lights.

If you want the glow of a lit fireplace but want to deal with keeping an eye on a fire, consider wrapping logs with twinkle lights. Here, white LED lights add a faint glimmer to the wood during the day and a soft, ambient glow at night.

You don’t have to give up that twinkly goodness just because Christmas is over. Incorporate festive holiday string lights into your everyday decor with these projects and ideas.

If you’re a beekeeper don’t forget to deck the hives this winter. String lights around the deeps avoiding the entrances and the covers. This way you can still access the hives for feeding and other winter maintenance.

Fill a decorative dish with pine cones for a simple and pretty decoration. For a festive look, add some miniature lights to the bottom of the dish.

In this basement, Sawhorse Design & Build bordered a custom, built-in wine rack with string lights, but you could apply the same principle to just about any wooden rack. This simple idea transforms a storage feature into an eye-catching focal point.

With a few strands of battery-operated lights and a bit of chain, a simple wire wreath form becomes a show-stopping chandelier.

An ethereal take on a traditional green wreath, this embroidery hoop wrapped in floral tape and faceted bulbs takes holiday decor to another dimension.

Wrapping the backboard of a rustic shadowbox creates a whimsical night scene that transitions from cute to chic.

For a pretty front door porch display fill a stainless steel bucket, or an olive bucket in this case, with greenery, split logs and lights.

If you’re handy with a drill, you can make this impressive DIY headboard complete with a lighted moon. In a kid’s bedroom, the string lights serve as a built-in nightlight.
