Counteract this season’s shorter and often darker days with one of these bright ideas.
Today marks the winter solstice, the shortest day of the year. Although the days are slowly going to get longer, winter is just getting started. If you’re like us, you spend more time indoors this time of year cuddled up under blankets reading a great book or binge watching TV. Set the mood for cozy days in by bringing more light into your space. From a pendant made from a basket to a fairy light garland and a mason jar candle holder, we’ve rounded up our favourite DIY lights from Pinterest.
Perched on a mantel, strung on a wall or draped across a dresser, these leafy lights will add a soft glow to any space. Find the instructions at Homey Oh My.
String a garland of mini lights across a wall and clip black and white images to the wire using mini clothespins. We love how Li-Chi Pan used it as an alternative to a traditional headboard.

This pendant from Vintage Revivals is simple and modern and the step-by-step instructions are so easy to follow!
