Have you ever noticed how badminton shuttlecocks look like little lamps? As soon as I found this resemblance, I knew what I wanted to turn mine into: a lights garland! Taken away from their usual (often tacky) Christmas context, lights garlands are wonderful for backyard parties and even to decorate the house. This project takes about half an hour of your time, and minimal supplies:
What you need:
- lights garland (preferably white)
- cheap badminton shuttlecocks (the same number as the lights in the garland)
- sharp tool
Start by taking off the soft cap of a shuttlecock. Make a whole through the top of the shuttlecock skirt, and pass a light through it. Place the soft cap back, and continue with the next shuttlecock. When each light has its own cover, your garland is done!
I like how the textured shadow on the wall looks like, and how the different colors project colorful light. What do you think?
