What you'll need:
+ String of xmas lights, 6 ft long string is used here
+ Safety pins
+ Acrylic paint and brushes
I used safety pins cause I like how they look, but you can use any sort of pin you'd like. I feel like the pins that have the different colored dots on top of them would look cool with this, too!
Then, get to painting!
To go along with the name of the DIY, I went with a some what Starry Night inspired motif.
I used two small rounded brushes for my design. I always prefer rounded for almost anything, so much easier to do line work with.
Once it', dry, it's ready for hanging! Preferably right above an outlet.
