Add cupcake liners to a strand of lights to make a cute "shades". What a cute idea for an outdoor party! I saw the perfect cupcake holders for this at the craft store the other day. I can't wait till spring to try this.
Cheap glasses, rubber bands, and frost spray paint. Place rubber bands how you want, then use Rust-Oleum Frosted Glass spray paint, waiting 2 min in between coats. Once dry you will want to use a sealer to make it water resistant. You can use Krylon Matte
