1  Wall art and lighting all in one! in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by gloryof84 on: February 24, 2008 06:59:23 PM
Here is my latest creation.  I was suddenly inspired to poke holes in the back of a canvas and stick a string of white Christmas lights through.  I painted the back of the canvas black because too much light was showing through and I left the front plain.  I absolutely love the glow it puts off in my living room, and Zane likes it too!

EDIT: The holes are poked with a really thick nail.  Then the lights are each pressed through and they hold in there pretty tight.  Then I gathered up the string and mashed it into a bundle, laid thick paper over it, and taped it to the back of the canvas. 

Here is my kitty and my art project:

And a little bit of a close up:
