DIY: Gothic Decor with Lights

I must admit, all my DIY tips are rather lame, it is not as if I am doing anything from the scratch. Anyways, I thought this is a pretty good idea, so I am sharing it. This was inspired by the fact that in January all Christmas lights are -50% or even more on sale and I bought this lovely blue light. In my family (if not in Finnish families in general) it is a custom to put some of those lights into a big glass bowl and use them inside the house as decorations.


Well, I did not have a glass bowl, but I did have a small black cage! More gothiness in one small detail.



This blue light is rather strong, since it could also be used outdoors. That's why it is not really a subtle night lamp or anything. :) It makes the whole room blue!

    1. That is a great idea! Unfortunately I do not have any garden, I live in a block of flats. :( But you have your lovely cottage and it's domain! You could make it a wonderland with lights. :D

    2. Remind me next winter to do that, okay Jade? Because I'll probably have forgotten by then. ;o)
